Cooler weather is on schedule. Sand Mountain Tomatoes as predicted are finishing up. We are getting one more delivery of Sand Mountain Tomatoes to carry us through next week. We will be starting to get Ruskin Palmetto tomatoes the following week.
This cooler weather is holding back the local corn. I am hoping to get some White Devotion Corn early this coming week. I will send a message to everyone on Monday to let you know the status. There is a gap in the production of the bicolor corn, as well, due to this weeks cooler weather.
Local okra is also going to be winding up soon. We got a fresh delivery in today from Ray Flowers.
We are getting our first delivery of Florida Navel Oranges tomorrow. I can't wait to taste them. They should be here tomorrow evening and available this Sunday. We are also getting a second delivery of Florida Hamlin Oranges. These have been nice and sweet but the first delivery was on the green side. This one should be riper.
For Halloween we still have pumpkins, sugar cane, some gourds and indian corn are still available. We continue to have a good selection of Dead World Sodas and Avery's Sodas on hand. For those not familiar, these are all natural cane sugar sodas created by small bottlers who have very creative, festive labels and the sodas taste great. We have over 20 flavors to choose from; vanilla, root beer to morbid green apple. Great for any Halloween bash. This weekend buy 2-4 packs and get $2.00 off.
We are expecting a new delivery of "Working Cows Dairy" cheeses and Milks on Monday. We appreciate all the support this new product is getting. They are the only Grass Fed Organic Dairy in the Panhandle.
Had a gentleman come by this week with amazing Redneck Pickles made from old family recipes. Sweet Fire, Bread and Butter, and Spicy Garlic. They are pickle chips that have a nice crunch and would go great with any sandwich or dish. We are sampling them in the store this week. Come by and check them out.
The product line up remains the same this week for local product.
