From the Lexington Farmers Market July 7 e-newsletter: Do you ever wonder where your food comes from? Can you tell the difference between tomato plants and pepper plants, or do you know what pigs eat when they are raised on pasture? Have your kids ever been to a real farm, or would your parents or grandparents like to visit one? The third annual Lexington Farmers' Market Farm Tour will take place Saturday, July 31st from 9am-2pm in conjunction with our 35thanniversary! This self-guided tour allows you to choose between 7 of our vendors' farms and visit the ones that interest you the most (maybe all of them)! We've received rave reviews from previous attendees, so don't miss out!
In addition to the Farm Tour, we're also celebrating all the great food the Lexington Farmers' Market has to offer with the A Taste of the Farm in the City dinner that evening. This special event will showcase recipes from Central Baptist's new cookbook, Beyond the Fence: A Culinary View of Historic Lexington prepared with ingredients from Lexington Farmers' Market members. We hope you'll join us for an evening celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Lexington Farmers' Market and the taste of Kentucky.
Tickets for the tour are only $10 for adults and $2 for children under 12. Dinner tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children and are limited. You can buy your tickets at any of the markets starting this Saturday, or online at www.lexingtonfarmersmarket.com.
