Today at the 326 Community Market: MORINGAS ARE BACK!

My friend Kayla sent me the above photo this morning. That's me at the Gainesville Union Street Farmer's Market a couple of weeks ago.

On the table I have variegated cassava, black pepper, Piper lolot, lion's ear, Florida cranberry, rosemary, an American persimmon, castor beans and even a little sugar fig in a one-gallon pot. Out of frame there's a Japanese persimmon and likely some pawpaws, black walnuts, native plums, peaches and other good stuff.

Every week I bring a variety of rare and useful herbs and edibles to Gainesville and then again to north Ocala at the 326 Community Market.

Today I've got something great in stock again: Moringa trees!

Yep. Thanks to my friend and newly minted nursery associate Curtiss, I've got a bunch of little moringa seedlings that are ready to be planted in your yard!

They're $4 a pot or 3 for $10. That's a deal and it won't last long.

(If you don't know about moringa yet, click here to read my plant profile on this miracle tree.)

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, ornamental plants, handcrafted birdhouses and more.

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