Lucky's Market in Lexington Ky

Lucky’s Market in Lexington Ky

Lucky’s Market in Lexington Ky opened last week. The organic grocery store is near the southern edge of downtown close to the University of Kentucky campus. The company spent over $800,000 renovating an old Winn Dixie store that had been vacant for years. Revitalizing old buildings is in keeping with Lucky’s mission of giving back to each location’s community.

The store boasts high quality locally sourced produce, fresh meats, and great selection in all the other departments including dairy, bakery, deli and liquor departments. With an emphasis on fresh, the mozzarella cheese for the pizzas in the deli is made in-house, and they even make their own bacon. There’s also a big focus on having fun while shopping at Lucky’s Market. There’s lot of hoopla and giveaways- which may or may not die down in time. If you were there at the actual grand opening you saw that instead of a ribbon cutting they had a bacon cutting! In another novel twist, customers can stop by the cafe and grab a beer to enjoy while cruising the aisles- something they refer to as “sip and stroll.”

Roller Girls of Central KY…just a Bluuurrrrrrrr  of speeeeed!!!

“Here they come…..and there they Go!”  Now that the Kentucky Derby is over, let’s talk about a different kind of derby! Did you know that we have our own roller derby team in Lexington Ky? I saw them practice recently at the Breadbox, home of West Sixth Street Brewing and other businesses.

FullSizeRender (18)The Rollergirls of Central Kentucky started in 2006 and they compete with other teams in the region. Roller derby can be a tough -and even brutal- game! This is a contact sport where two teams of five skate around a short track trying to get in front of members of the opposing team. Skaters bump and jostle their way to the lead. Bruises, sprains, broken bones, and concussions are not uncommon!

Their next match is at the Lexington Convention Center on May 30th, which will be their season opener. There are at least four more events in the coming months. Learn more about the Rollergirls of Central Kentucky on their Facebook page.FullSizeRender (19)
