Hello, Friends. How was your weekend? I almost forgot that our Farmer’s Market started on Saturday. Luckily, Mr. Sweet Greens reminded me in time – so we didn’t miss the fun! The Farmer’s Market season in Florida starts in October and runs through May – which is fantastic because we get to enjoy local, fresh foods all fall, winter and spring. There was a great selection this year and I was happy to see that almost all of our favorite vendors came back for another year.
There were a few vendors selling local vegetables and fruit – which was great considering it is early in the season. Mr. Sweet Greens was excited to see all of the different fruits and vegetables that were available.
There is always a fantastic selection of fresh, organic herbs, spices and teas – the aroma is amazing!
And the baked goods were unbelievable – it was hard to decide what goody to choose. Breads? Sweets? Both? Eben had to get his usual – hand squeezed lemonade and homemade cider donuts.
We couldn’t resist picking up a bottle of local Florida honey for our tea. Fantastic.
Does your community have a fall farmer’s market?
