It was a great week last week. I saw my friends John and Lisa... Karen... Curtiss and Margot... and more. If I missed you, it's because I was really, really busy! The weather was wonderful and the conversations were uplifting.

HOT PEPPERS! 

This week I'm bringing a bunch of jalepenos and cayenne pepper plants from the greenhouse... they're beautiful and ready to be planted out. Some are almost in bloom. Pick some up for your fall garden - just $2.00 per pot! Make your own salsa... or grind your own red pepper. The taste of homegrown peppers is unbelievable!

Let's see what else I have today at the 326 Community Market...

Peaches

I've got JUST two peach trees left at $20 each!

Olives

I picked up some olive trees this week - come on down and get your own Arbequina olive and plan on some tasty Mediterranean dishes. Only 2 left!!!

Goji Berries

I still have some. Small goji berries are $4.00 a pot... pick up a few and discover this weirdly flavored lycopene-loaded superfruit.

Mulberries

I have small Illinois Everbearing trees for $12.00 each. Don't worry about the size... mulberries grow FAST!

Chinese Water Chestnuts

Do you have a pond? A swampy spot? A kiddie pool? Chinese water chestnuts are a delicious root crop that loves the heat and will produce abundantly. It's also perennial! I figured out how to package them up for sale (regular pots don't work) and I'll have some with me today - give 'em a try!

Chestnuts

SOLD OUT!


Japanese Persimmons

Simply one of the best fruit trees for this area. Sweet, luscious, non-astringent fruit... and my price of $29 per tree is really hard to beat.

Cassava

I've got a limited amount of potted cassava plants for sale again... grab 'em before they're gone!

Visit the 326 Market in Ocala today and go shopping. There's a lot going on in the nursery and I'm finding more rare edibles each week.

The 326 Community Market runs every Thursday from 3 - 7PM and is really easy to find.

Google map is here. Their Facebook page is here (with lots more photos and info):

My prices are good and my gardening advice is free.

Beyond what I carry, there are also folks selling melt-in-your-mouth Florida peaches, goat milk cheese and soap, handcrafts, recycled pallet wood furniture, fresh lemonade, chickens, delicious ice cream (from actual hand-milked cows), crafts, vegetables, baked goods, homemade jams and jellies (really good), local raw honey, ornamental plants, homemade birdhouses and more.

It's a great group of people and very friendly... the way a local market should be.

Come on down!
