Hope you had a pleasant Good Friday! To help you get ready for Easter we just received our first delivery this year of Florida Blueberries!! The first ones come out of Central Florida, but in just a few short weeks we will also have blueberries from around Pensacola.

Get your green on...St. Patricks Day is this Saturday. Luckily we have plenty of green on hand to share. Green cabbage, green beans, green kale, broccoli, bibb lettuce, bell peppers, and collards all Florida and Alabama grown.
Did you know that we proudly supply Mcguires Iris Pub with their green cabbage which they use for the very popular Irish dish, "Corned Beef and Cabbage"? It is a favorite. Mcguries prepares over 1500 pounds of cabbage for the day when everyone gets to be Irish.
Come and see us this Satureday for some good greens. Also if you enjoy eating some good corned beef and cabbage think about McGuires.

Happy Friday! Just in today our first of the season Florida Sweet Onions!! They taste like a cross between a spring onion and a Vidalia. They have large flat bulb and nice green tops. They are good to eat raw on a burger or grilled.
I have fallen in love with a BIG JERK. Big Jerk Soda that is made right here in Pensacola by a husband and wife team, Eaton and Ryan Oelscharger. Big Jerk makes a variety of ginger sodas. They use fresh and local ingredients like, cane sugar, ginger, turmeric, lemons and limes. They are very refreshing. Big Jerk could help keep the doctor at bay in a very pleasant way. They are in a class all their own. I hope you will come by and try one.
We are also featuring fresh from Florida Orchid Island Juices. These are made with Indian River Citrus, and other Florida Grown fruits and vegetables. My favorite is strawberry lemonade, and Sandy loves the orange beet and carrot ginger. Their number one seller is orange juice made with Hamlin and Valencia oranges. We carry several variety's all lightly pasteurized. You get that fresh squeezed flavor and 21 day extended shelf life.
The rest of this weeks local and regional fruits and vegetables:
