Check out their blog! It’s great for planning your grocery list ahead of time; I’ll be buying lettuce and snap peas from Geraldson Community Farm tomorrow. The blog has vendor information, entertainment line-ups, and menus. It’s also a place for vendors to announce any specials they’re running. Tomorrow’s special is 50 cents off per pound at Maggie’s Seafood, but get there early – it’s only available to the first fifteen customers.
And this mid-week market just keeps getting better! In addition to the blog, they have partnered with the Sarasota County Extension to offer free gardening classes from 12 – 1, January through April. Tomorrow’s class is Container Gardening. And what’s even better than taking a free class is taking said free class in a historic mansion overlooking a rose garden and Phillippi Creek. Built in 1916, the Edison Keith mansion is an Italian Renaissance-style beauty surrounded by a 60-acre park complete with a nature trail and playground.
