Florida February Farmers Market

Tuesday morning you can nearly always know where I’ll be.  I go to Tasty Tuesday Farmers Market in New Port Richey.  It’s a small market set up in front of the library and is for local growers offering fresh from the yard produce which is grown without pesticides.


















February is known as the cool growing season in Florida and that’s when you can get all kinds of leafy greens.











Most of the people with tables are offering vegetables and some fruit straight from their gardens at home.  This is the best time of year for the bounty of produce offered.











Cabbage likes cool weather and I love locally grown cabbage – fresh and beautiful like a flower.








By summer, the greens have pretty much disappeared.  The Florida summer heat is too much for leafy greens.












Thanks for coming with me to visit Tasty Tuesdays.  Wishing you a beautiful day!

  1. What a beautiful harvest and in February no less. I visit our farmer’s market during our NC spring and summer. They are out there during the winter too, but I don’t go very often. I’ll bet they have some nice things during that time as well. Will have to check it out. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen fresh eggs at ours. TFS

  2. Hello, the fresh veggies look beautiful. It is great knowing it is grown without the pesticides. Pretty sky capture.
    Enjoy your day, have a great weekend ahead!

  3. What an abundance of fresh produce that you know is grown without pesticides. It’s good to buy fresh fruit and vegetables in season. The organic eggs looks great too. We have a farmers market in the next village to ours, but only once a month on a Saturday.

  4. Oh how wonderful to see all these healthy, green and fresh vegetables. All photos were tempting but that red metal rack with carrots & other goodies is super! Thank you for sharing Carol. At the moment I have to content with supermarket. Happy weekend!

  5. Thanks for commenting on my blog. Now I’m putting the Hexagon House on my list to visit. Since it is owned by a museum, they would probably let me enter the property to take some other exterior shots, at least.

    1. Oh I’d love to see that post. I do love historic homes. If you can get the history of the building that is always interesting too. Happy Sunday!

  6. Carol – Oh my. It’s snowing like mad outside, and your post has me salivating over those vegetables. Amazing. I adore how one stand has displayed the beets and carrots, etc. Shows off the color to great advantage! It will be quite some months before we have any farmers’ markets here, so I appreciate living vicariously through you. I am sure your post is quite welcome to many of the Mosaic Monday readers!

    1. thanks – in the heat of the summer, I love seeing northern gardens, as so much won’t grow here in the summer

  7. Our farmer’s market won’t open until the spring. Right now there is a small Saturday market at the community center, mostly preserved items and baked goods. – Margy

  8. What a bountiful farmer’s market! Your weather there is probably much like ours here in south Texas. We can usually grow vegetables all year round. I’ve never tried lettuce-y vegetables, though. They seem so delicate.

    Your photos are excellent.

    1. I personally haven’t had much luck with lettuce but the master gardeners have it each late winter early spring.

  9. I just love farmers markets!
    I discovered one that is opened all week and I frequently stop there for all of my greens!

    Thanks for sharing!


I love to make new friends and get to know you.
