Today at the 326 Community Market: Arrowroot, Moringa and $16 Fruit Trees!

I've got some cool new stuff traveling with me today. Here are the coolest three:

1. Arrowroot

Arrowroot (known properly as Maranta arundinacea) is an easy-to-grow crop that also looks very nice in the landscape.

It can be used to make biscuits and as a thickener since the edible roots are loaded with starch.

As a bonus, it's gluten-free.

I've only been growing arrowroot for a couple of years and haven't used it yet - when I do, I'll post on it here.

Until then, pick up a couple of plants and do some experimentation of your own!

2. Moringa

Moringa is the "miracle tree" and is currently an object of fascination in the medical and alternative health world.

The trees are fast-growing and not at all picky. I'm selling young starts for $4 each or 3 for $10. Plant a moringa forest!

3. $16 Fruit Trees

I have a few varieties of pears, plus white and gold peaches, plus Japanese persimmons for sale in smaller sizes at an unbeatable price.

Pick some up for your orchard or food forest and get them in the ground. I can almost guarantee you they'll outgrow taller trees from Lowe's or Home Depot that have been sitting around in pots.

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, handcrafts, chickens, delicious ice cream (from actual hand-milked cows), crafts, vegetables, baked goods, homemade jams and jellies, local raw honey, candles, ornamental plants, herbs horsehair jewelry, gourmet chips and more. It's a great group of people and very friendly... the way a local market should be.

Come on down!
