Yellow Green Farmers Market - Hollywood
As I write my blog today, I am enjoying a lovely Maifanite Longevity tea with a dash of raw honey. Two of the many great items I found this morning at the Yellow Green Farmers Market. I had a few items in mind to look for. I easily found what I wanted and a whole lot more. Raw honey is something I enjoyed back in the days I lived on an orange grove. Going even further back to when I lived in Amish country, my family had fresh eggs and chickens delivered to the house. Head straight to the very back of the market and ask the folks at "The Good Earth" to set you up with a dozen. Then you too can experience that fresh off the farm taste. In addition there are cheeses, breads, pastries, and of course fresh veggies making it well worth the drive. It is not easy to get a vine riped tomato or a big jar of homemade half sour pickles in South Florida. Until now that is. It's not all about the food though. There are as many, if not more booths filled with unique or handmade items.
My trip to the Yellow Green Farmers Market was more than the items I put in my bags. I had a great time talking to the people working in the booths. I liked the memories it brought back when shopping was a "one on one" experience and not a cart pushed through a super Walmart. I will defiantly be back but a little closer to lunch next time. There were some awesome sandwich shops, smoothie and fruit juice booths, and pastry makers not to mention a picnic area to enjoy them. If you have not been yet, what are you waiting for.
