PHOTOS: A taste of Florida’s rich food heritageMay 15
The Florida Heritage Foods Initiative launched its third farmers market May 8 to showcase Florida’s agricultural diversity from cultures across the globe. Co-hosted with Grove Street Farmers Market on 1001 NW 4th St., it brought additional small-scale vendors and educational groups to feature the history and impact of worldwide cultural influence to local farming. The FHFI is a three-year USDA grant project between the Florida Organic Growers and Santa Fe College. Event coordinator Kathy Anderson said each FHFI farmers market will present a new theme based on in-season agriculture and international holidays. “Each farmers market will be a unique experience,” she said. “It all stems on what’s in season for that event, and the time of year for the event.”
