Success at The Urban Farmer!

I had a wonderful experience at the Urban Farmer's Green Market yesterday. Really, you have to go. It's everything I've been looking for in a local farmer's market! All of the produce was actually grown around here. Can you believe it? I was in shock. There was a great variety of tropical fruits and vegetables for sale, as well as booths selling crafts, jellies made from local fruit, dips, local honey and gluten free breads. We even bought the baby a homemade hair bow with a kitty on it, which she loved. Also available for purchase were fruit trees, seedlings, seeds, garden supplies, Florida Keys sea salt, Florida grown rice, cool locavore tee shirts (I should've bought one) and really cute handmade aprons. I was excited to see some unique produce for sale like Hawaiian plantains, sapodilla, pickled starfruit, rainbow carrots and some interesting varieties of banana. The green market is going to be held every third Sunday of the month from now on and they hope to expand it to every first and third if all goes well, so let's get out there and show these guys some well deserved support. This place is what I've been looking for and it just had really positive energy.
