Zelda & Bramble have some farmers’ market news to share! We’ve been selling spice blends at the Franklin County Farmers’ Market in downtown Frankfort, KY, every Thursday and Saturday since April 2018. We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve now joined the Woodford County Farmers’ Market and are selling at the brand-new Wednesday market at the renowned Kentucky Castle in Versailles! It’s quite an experience to buy and sell locally grown and produced food with a medieval-style castle as a backdrop!
Last week was the very first market at the castle, and it was incredible mayhem—reportedly more than 2,000 people visited the market over the course of three hours! The following week was also very well attended, not to say well-fed!
We love all the conversations we have at the farmers’ market with food lovers from all walks of life. There are folks who stride towards the Z&B table with purpose, knowing exactly what they want. Others read the descriptions of each blend in depth, taking advantage of our “sniffers” before making a choice.
Some people craft a dinner plan based on what is available at the market, and it is fun to help them decide which spice blend will bring their meal together. Many people are looking for seasonings compatible with their favorite cuisine, ingredient, or go-to technique. Some love to cook, and they light up when they approach our table. Others are a little more tentative, saying that they don’t do much cooking. We tell them not to worry: with the right flavors and quality ingredients, anyone can make a delicious meal!
We’re excited to continue meeting new friends and seeing established Z&B fans at the farmers’ markets in both Frankfort and Versailles! Will we see you there this week?
