Are you looking for fresh produce — but want to avoid the grocery stores? Well, it’s time to check out your local Florida farms.
We know, times are not what they used to be — and without the local farmer’s markets, getting local produce has become slightly more challenging. Well, it doesn’t have to be. That’s because local farms are selling their produce straight from their farm.
When you buy from Florida farms, you will be helping out the local farmers (as they have an abundance because of all of the closures), and you’ll be picking up fresh produce (oftentimes, at a fraction of cost).
We will be adding more farms to the list, but for now, we’re starting wit farms in Palm Beach County. If you know of any farms that should be added to the list, please leave a comment.
Info: Yee farms, known for offering a selection of Asian vegetables, is offering curbside pickup at the current time. For $15, pick up a 10-lb box of fresh produce. Items will vary week-to-week, but expect a selection Asian leafy greens like bok choy, sweet cauliflower, flat cabbage, Gail Lan and cilantro.
