Markets More and more Kentucky towns have farmers' markets. Yea!!!!
I love Lexington Farmers Market, and my Saturday morning ritual trips there. I love the food and the visits with growers and neighbors.
I am happy that Kentucky's growers are finding new markets, and new ways to market, including roadside markets, farmers' markets, and "buying clubs," usually called "CSAs," for Community Supported Agriculture.
Of course it starts with land. None is more beautiful and full of goodness than our Bluegrass land. Water, too - in and on our land - we have plenty, and we are grateful.
See all posts about Land.
Restaurants started the food revolution in the USA, as far as I can tell. Without the Alice Waters revolution, a few lonely people in every part of the country might have continued growing and preparing their own foods, trading a few things with neighbors, and eating local.
With the best food in the country -- and in our state -- coming from farms near the restaurants, a lot of us are catching on to the beauty of local, organic, sustainable, fabulous food.
In Lexington, Midway, and Louisville, we enjoy Holly Hill Inn, the Black Tulip, Metropol, Proof, Lily's, Dudley's, Buddy's, and more.
