Seagrass & Satstumas: Palafox Market April 4, 2015
More strawberries available this week. The first crops came from farmers using "high tunnels" and now we are seeing more and more farmers with delicious spring strawberries!
Bundled chives from Coldwater Gardens.
Beautiful micro greens.
Fruit leathers, pickles, plus pepper and wine jelly from Farm Girl Produce.
Red velvet cake by the slice.
Lots of local honey.
It's prime planting time in Northwest Florida and there are lots of plants for sale at the Palafox Market!
Still seeing winter staples like rutabega.
Fresh and local bread from Bread of Life.
Sweet potatoes from Po Man's Pickins.
Lots of seedlings for sale.
Leeks and radishes.
In northwest Florida spring turns to summer all too soon. Eating seasonally and embracing the changing weather means it is very exciting to see new crops being harvested. While farmers started planting at the tail end of winter there is something about the harvest and tasting the first fruits of the spring and summer that is exciting. I expect to see new and different produce every week now at the Palafox Market as the weather warms up!
