When you think of Florida you probably think of Disney and beaches but did you know Florida has some of the very best produce and seafood around?
I’m a born and raised Florida girl so I’ve been a bit spoiled by our year round great weather and produce. I grow a lot of wonderful fruit in my yard and we like to go fishing but we love to pick up fresh produce and seafood. It is easier to find than you might think, they are easily found at your local farmer’s market, grocery store, or U-Pick Farms (Find one by you, they are all over!!).
Some of our favorites are
- Sweet Corn
My husband spend years as a commercial fisherman. So when we got married he stressed the importance of fresh wild caught seafood. Farm raised fish and shrimp are banned from this house because they are shipped from other countries and aren’t kept in the best conditions. Some farm raised fish even have added colors and preservatives. It is also important to us to support our local economy. I know first hand that it helps families like my own.
We still catch our own fish and what we don’t catch we make sure it is local. Our local grocery store sells shrimp from Mayport and we also get it from our local farmer’s market where it is brought it around 4am in St. Augustine and you can buy it THAT morning.
