Today at the 326 Community Market! Goumi berries! Bananas! Weird plants!
|Grow your own pineapples!|
Between the Farmer's Market and Kanapaha, I was able to send a lot of folks home with rare and wonderful edibles for their homes and gardens.
As we near winter it's a great time to plant fruit and nut trees.
I've also got a few cool rare plants right now, like natal plums, acerola cherries, and a few nitrogen-fixing goumi berries - though we're getting close to running out of this rare berry.

Visit the 326 Market north of 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):
Beyond what I carry, there are also folks selling homegrown produce, real old-fashioned lye soap, handcrafts, handmade jewelry, signs, delicious ice cream (from actual hand-milked cows), crafts, vegetables, baked goods, homemade jams and jellies, local raw honey, ornamental plants, homemade birdhouses and more.
The prices are good and my gardening advice is free... come say hi!
