This Week at the Union Street Farmer's Market

I will be back at the farmer's market in Gainesville this afternoon (and on future Wednesday afternoons through the spring, summer and fall), selling plants and answering gardening questions.

I'll also be bringing paper copies of my new booklet, fresh from the publisher!

Stop in between 4 and 7PM and say hi!


I've got a couple of cool new plants coming along with me this time, including the fascinating native mayapple - an attractive fruiting for full shade:




Mayapples are uncommon in Florida; however, I think they would definitely be worth trying in a dense food forest or yard under some live oaks.


Along with a few mayapples, I'll be bringing:

Florida soapberries
Native blueberries (two types: highbush and V. darrowii)
Native pawpaws
Gingers (various)
Natal Plums
Mulberries (various)
Cold-hardy bananas (Raja Puri)
Black Pepper (only one left for now!)

...and more! As I head out the door I almost always throw a few rare goodies in my van for true plant geeks.

Note: the market has moved from its previous location at the Bo Diddley Plaza to the parking lot at the corner of SW 1st Street and SW 1st Avenue, right in the heart of town.


The Union Street Farmer's Market website is here.

See you there.

Dude you have so many cool plants I'd love to try growing. I'm really interested in various native fl fruits. I don't figure I can make it to one of your booths as I'm far south of you. If there's ever seeds available for these rare things please make a post for seeds you could get mail order if possible! I'm cool with trying to start by seed even if it takes forever.
