Bradenton Farmer’s Market October 2, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Sustainable Living.

We’re heading to the Bradenton Farmer’s Market this morning to enjoy live music while checking out vendor displays of arts & crafts, plants, and fresh, local,  organic produce.

The Farmer’s Market is re-opening after a summer hiatus of several months duration.


I’m excited to see what’s available at this time of year, the beginning of the growing season in sub-tropical Florida.

One of our favorite vendors sells fresh-baked  rosemary garlic focaccia and freshly pressed olive oil.  Others sell locally grown fruits and veggies in all colors of the rainbow.


Fresh.  Local.  Organic.  Healthy.  I’m grinning from ear to ear.

Have a Spectacular Saturday!

Yeay for Florida. It keeps us in fruit over our winters…

Sunshine in an orange peel.

Or do you skip oranges due to the acidity?

I’m sure you had a lovely outing, Nancy!

Gorgeous day. Brought home tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, onion, green beans, fresh bread, and seasoning. Had a couple slices of pizza at a new place we’ve wanted to try.

We even bought some tomato and pepper plants for the courtyard. Seems odd to be planting vegetables in October though. I’m normally ripping up my vegetable garden about now.
