First Market Day at Pinecrest Gardens

Wow, what a great start to market season! Folks showed up early to see what was on hand, and they kept coming, and coming, and coming…

first week at Pinecrest Gardens market

By 9am, the official start time, we were mobbed. The weather was great. The setting was awesome. There was plenty of parking and lots of space for many vendors. The mix was good. Pretty much everyone from the old Gardners Market site was there, plus some new folks.

Even this early in the season, we had lots of great goodies, and every single thing in our booth was (and always is) locally-grown, from either our own farm or our farm partners. We had interesting things like charichuela (Rheedia spp), black sapote, root basil, YingYang salad mix, fresh oyster mushrooms, smoked eggs, Yukina Savoy, Shungiku radishes, butterhead lettuces, callaloo, our dried Fruits of Summer mix, farm honey, and lots of other wonderful goodies.

how far did your food travel

Everything comes from South Florida, Lake Okeechobee south, except for the tupelo and orange blossom honey, which are from further upstate.

In addition, everything we sell is certified organic, or pesticide-free, and direct from the farm.

Furthermore, at our booth, you will be dealing with the very folks that are growing your food. That’s our guarantee!

And, of course, in honor of the closing of Art Basel week in Miami, our booth had its own resident local artist, our daughter Rachel, complete with exhibit…
