Happy August! It's hard to believe it's nearly time for the school year to begin again around here.  We want to welcome our new neighbors at the Audubon Park School, and are especially excited to hear about their partnership with our friends at Fleet Farming!  Their students will have the opportunity to grow food in a school garden, and that's worth celebrating.  

As we ramp up to the start of a new school year, we're also sticking it out until the start of a new growing season.  Max from Farm Fresh Raw Foods is back this week with some tropical varieties from South Florida, and Fleet Farming and Heart of Christmas are still going strong with summer crops, but the time to start thinking about fall has arrived!  Miller's Edible Plants will have starter plants available - now is the time to start transplanting tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants in your garden - and the Master Gardener program will be on hand to answer your gardening questions.  

Last, but certainly not least, we are excited to welcome Theo Moon back to the market.  He'll be serenading us from 7 until close this evening, and we can't wait!

We hope to see you there!

Cheers,

Gabby Lothrop
Market Director

We're also glad to announce a rare summer appearance from R&B Organics Farm.  Word is they'll have some summer melons for sale at tonight's market. 

We hope to see you there!

We don't want to jinx it, but it looks like it's going to be a rain-free Monday for us.  Of course, that means it's hot out, but we're looking forward to enjoying some sunshine with some of our local favorites.  While the produce selection is changing, it's still delightfully fresh and flavorful.  Look for tomatoes, beans, and hearty greens, along with more tropical fruits coming your way.  

It's the first Monday of the month, so the Master Gardeners will be on site to help you with all your gardening and plant care questions.  

Hope to see you tonight!

We blinked, and April came to a close! As we finish out another month, we're seeing our growing seasons transition.  You'll start seeing more tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and other warm weather crops, and start seeing less variety in root vegetables, winter greens (such as kale), and broccoli. Watermelon season is just around the corner!

Since Florida summers can be a bit like Winters up north (in terms of the availability of locally-grown produce), now's the time to start preserving and storing the season's bounty. One of the easiest ways to do that is by freezing goods. I find blueberries to be the easiest seasonal crop to store - just rinse, dry, and throw into a freezer safe container to enjoy in smoothies, pies, syrups, ice creams, sorbets and more for months.  I also like to blanche and freeze greens such as Kale and Collards for soups, stir fries, and sauces.  A little planning can go a long way when I'm longing for this season's flavors at the height of summer.  

We'd like to welcome back Eugenio Rojas, whom you've likely met at the Kashaya Yogurt booth!  He's rejoining the market tonight with his massage business, Massage with Genie.  He's a graduate of East West College of Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon, and is ready to share his skills with chair massage at the market.  He'll also be able to help you pre-order that wonderful Kashaya Biotic Yogurt.  Be sure to welcome him back when you come out tonight!

Hope to see you there!

Cheers,

Gabby Lothrop
