Living Local

The weather was so incredibly nice here in the panhandle today the hubs and I decided we would venture out to the local St. Andrew's Farmers Market. Ok, I'll be a little more honest, it was definitely more my idea than his and he was basically dragged there, but he was sweet and indulged me for the morning by carrying around bags of produce and meat ;) I had found this market on Facebook a few months ago and had been waiting until the weather got warmer and more enjoyable before venturing out to see what it was all about. I've always been really intrigued by buying local, fresh, organic, produce and meats and this was a great opportunity to find such items here in Florida.

I definitely plan on frequenting this market.  Everyone was so nice and helpful and they had an awesome selection that I'm sure will only get better once spring and summer gets here when produce is even more in season! If you're from the Panama City area I'd highly recommend checking this place out if it's your kind of thing. There were even stands for local honey (my favorite) and homemade pasta which we bought to try this week!

We got some fresh shrimp right off the boat basically,
which we're both super excited to try!

Most of our haul, minus the shrimp! Notice we found
 some local honey and grass fed beef...yumm!

  1. Oh I used to love that farmers market! The honey is the best :)

    1. It's so great! I can't believe i've just now found it haha. Funny enough too, I was thinking how you would have loved it while we were there ;)

  2. I LOVE farmer's markets!!! Luckily for me, Dan does as well. We are both all for eating local and fairly healthy, and Colorado has spoiled us. I hope we're able to find great farmer's markets everywhere we move! :)
