August 2017 Update:
The best part of summer in South Florida…MANGOES...and lucky for us they are abundant at the markets. Enjoy them in smoothies, salads, sauces and chutney. Mangos are available in a variety of colors, shapes, flavors and sizes. Look for your favorite mango in our markets all through August.
Tropical fruits also abound at this time of year -- we've got guavas, passion fruit, carambola and longan. Also not to be missed are the big, buttery Florida avocados. Did you know that Florida avocados have fewer calories per ounce than California Hass avocados? Choosing an avocado can be tricky. Avocados are usually hard when you buy them and you want to let them ripen before you cut them open. (Once cut, they will not get any riper.) They taste best when they’re allowed to sit at room temperature until they are slightly soft, but not mushy. Once they’re ripe, they get overripe quickly, so eat them up as fast as you can. You can hold a ripe avocado for a few days by putting it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it. Avocados are good for your skin and hair too.
Coming up in September we will once again be participating in the 2017 Arts Launch Event at the Adrienne Arsht Center. Come check out our Farmers Market! There will lots of FREE all day events including lots of vendors!
