If you’re in the neighborhood of State Road 70 and Caruso Road in Bradenton tomorrow, stop by the Community Farmers Market. I stopped in last week and was pleasantly surprised. It’s in sort of a strange location – the Health Park East parking lot, so I wasn’t expecting much – maybe a handful of vendors at best. But there were a dozen or more with a nice variety of produce, prepared foods, plants, and crafts. The King Farm stand was my favorite because they offer local, organic fruits and vegetables.
John’s father had just brought us some pole beans and squash from his garden, so I went straight for the blueberries.
The market runs from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays; the address is 6040 53rd Ave E (SR70) Bradenton, FL.
