This week at our booth
Avocado madness!! We have 3 kinds...
avocados are beautiful and delicious.
You'll love the nutty clean flavor of our red-skinned Hardee avocadoes, and you'll appreciate the neck of solid flesh in our delicious looong-necked Russell avos.
Serve simply sliced or cubed, or make a quick chunky guac. Add some Jalapeno or Serrano, fresh cilantro, chopped garlic, salt, and the "secret" ingredient: fresh-squeezed lime juice. Avocado getting ripe fast? throw some in a smoothie, blend with salad dressing, or make a quick avocado pesto and serve on pasta!
Mangoes have been prolific...
with Irwin, Haden, and Gold Nugget, soon to end.
Each one is delicious and different,
and you won't find most of these at any store...
ssion(ate)fruit, still producing,
are ready to flavor your salad dressing, yogurt, drinks of all kinds (hot, iced, or alcoholic), baked goods from cakes to fish and chicken...makes life taste better all around!
and sweet Sapodilla
"aka Brown Sugar fruit"
make the best smoothies/batidos, and require no added sugar
and small creamy
white sapotes - these babies have russet skins, rough-looking on the outside, but pure creamy sweet bites on the inside
It's the Summer of Jakfruit
...wanna try that faux pulled pork recipe you've been looking at for months? Now's the time. It's great with ripe jakfruit - with BBQ sauce you'll have this delicious sweet and sour thing going on - UMAME! buy one or several pieces - only what you need - we've already cut it open and removed the core for you.
Eggs! Eggs! Eggs!
lots of our own Rachel's Eggs
and delicious and rare Turkey Eggs
Our eggs have twice been awarded their highest 5-egg rating by the Cornucopia Institute's Egg Scorecard. Come see what the
fuss is all about. WARNING: after eating these, you will NOT want to buy store eggs ever again...
Eggs are versatile, nutritious, and a great source of inexpensive quality protein - where else can you get a serving of quality protein (2 eggs) for less than $1.50?
Bake a simple quiche/pie with a 1/2 bunch of kale, a pack of eggs, yogurt, and your favorite cheese, in a whole wheat crust. Season with fresh herbs, and optionally add chopped ham, bacon, or sausage for a great main dish, or cut into cubes for delicious party snacks.
We also have raw goat milk
from goats raised on organic feed
[per Florida law: raw milk products are labeled for pet use only - not for human consumption]
Veggies & greens
green curly kale,
baby sunflower greens, peashoots,
fresh moringa greens with nutty flowers,
butternut squash, and
try the Jamaican pumpkin, roasted or boiled until JUST fork-tender, then chilled and served cubed on a bed of watercress (arugula and/or lettuce work great too), with thinly-sliced onions or scallions on top, dressed with a simple olive oil and vinegar dressing, salt, and pepper. It's my favorite salad for a hot summer day
Savory herbs & spices
"Sweet Baby" basil, garlic chives, curryleaf,
Check out our great selection of our dried Fruits of Summer mix, or
"Better Than Candy!" individual single-fruit packs - try one or all. They make great party snacks.
