I was so excited to hear news of a farmers market opening in Santa Rosa County! If you’re looking for a place to get some fresh veggies, the Santa Rosa Farmers Market is now open for business. I went last Saturday to its first market and enjoyed looking at the different selections.
I saw a variety of local produce: zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, snap peas, potatoes, kale, fennel, and even a few early tomatoes. There was quite a few jams offered, as well as pickles, homemade bread, and I even saw some Tabasco pepper plants for sale.
There was a nice selection of squash, great for kicking off grilling season.
The market is from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays at the Pace Athletic and Recreation Association complex. The address is 3537 Limbaugh Lane.
