Lexington Farmer’s Market at The Summit

When I heard the Lexington Farmer’s Market was coming to the Summit (a new shopping development VERY close to home) I was beyond excited! Every Wednesday it will be set up in the Summit at Fritz Farm on the corner of Nicholasville and Man O War. Yesterday was the kickoff event with live music, giveaways, and lots of different vendors selling everything from flowers to wine to tomatoes. I took Savannah and we really enjoyed our time there, despite the 90 degree heat! The market is held in the Whole Foods parking lot, so we went in to get AC several times! Savannah’s highlights of the market were eating the fresh blueberries, seeing all the doggies, and eating a cereal bar from the free kids section at Whole Foods. Hmm seeing a pattern there?? She must get it from her mama! And what a great way to share a weekly tradition with your kids teaching them about the importance of eating local, eating healthy, and growing your own veggies!DSC08364Here are the goodies we bought! Can’t go wrong with this local baked bread from Quarles Farm.DSC08341
Look at this cute free tote that was one of the giveaways to the first 100 customers! It was designed by a local artist. DSC08320DSC08319DSC08334DSC08331DSC08329
As soon as I saw these green tomatoes, I immediately wanted to make fried green tomatoes. Living in the south would not be complete without them! They turned out so good. Here is the recipe! DSC08377DSC08328
Apparently, Lexington Pasta provides for the Lexington Pasta Garage, another local spot we need to check out sometime!DSC08326DSC08325DSC08323DSC08321DSC08338Savannah really loved the local blueberries!DSC08350And that cereal bar, well you can clearly see she enjoyed that as well!DSC08349

Thanks for reading!

  1. Looks so fun! Sad we missed it last week! And we just got some green tomatoes from a neighbor- so I’m glad you have a recipe you use to make fried green tomatoes! Trying it tonight!
