Windy Corner Market is about 20 minutes from downtown via Broadway. As you drive north, Broadway turns into gorgeous Paris Pike which will lead you into horse country. Turn right on Muir Station Road and look for the restaurant at the intersection of Bryan Station Road. The building looks like an old country store and does have a few gift items for sale such as sauces, jams and cook books.

Be sure to give yourself time while you are in the area to drive around the rolling hills of Kentucky horse farms. These are the Bluegrass hills that make Kentucky famous. People fly in from all around the world to see our magnificent scenery- and to drive along the amazing Paris Pike. If you would like to own some of this gorgeousness, I can help. While the most expensive horse farms are over $13,000,000 there are many others in a more accessible price range. A look at Kentucky Horse Farms for Sale reveals a few tracts of land ranging from 10 to 24 acres for under $200,000 as well as several farms with homes for $600,000 to $1 million. Most are in Lexington or within a short drive.
