Fresh Food

Alas, the fresh food place is no more. Green Market is on E. 4th on Saturday mornings from Oct. to May. Otherwise, you just have to settle for Publix.

About 7 blocks north of the House, at 3rd street, on the west side of Federal (the part that is going south) is a new little store that sells fresh fruit, organic fruit and veggies, cool bread (if you get it day-old, it’s only $1.00.) It is in a little house and the woman who runs it is very nice. Bring your own bag. I got a loaf of bread one day for $1 and I got a bag of onion rolls, a bag of bagels — all just one day old, and just $1.

The outposts where we used to buy oranges are all closed — closest one is in West Palm, like 20 miles away, so this place is your best bet, and a short walk/run/bike/drive away.

Green Market is by Old School Sq every Saturday a.m. and is well worth it. They do not sell coffee, for some bizarre reason, so get a cup before you go there. The crepes from the cart are excellent.
