1907432_859000260020_6141294761442135219_n

Mark your calendars for Florida Farmers Market‘s First Saturday of December. Every month from March-December we have a monthly craft show with farmers, crafters, and vendors of specialty products. Booths are only $15 and we are still taking vendors (you will want to bring your own 10×10 tent, tables, and cash box). We are located on HWY 331 N next to Paxton High School in Paxton. For more information, call the market: 850-708-9195. 

First Saturday events are held from the first Saturday in March-December. We take January and February off to encourage attendance with a local charity CANCER FREEZE and hope you will attend CANCER FREEZE 2014 on the first Saturday of February each year.

Thanksgiving Holiday Hours

FFM will be open on Thanksgiving Day just like last year from 7 am – 2 pm. We found that a lot of places are closed locally, so we will be open to feed those who may not have plans with family or just want to have breakfast or lunch with us. Our suggestion for your meal if you aren’t having turkey elsewhere is the Holiday Meltdown! It’s a delicious combination of Smoked Turkey, Mozzarella Cheese, Cranberries, Pecans, and Goat Cheese all melted together in a Spinach and Herb Wrap. It’s a perfect way to celebrate Turkey Day without the mess in the kitchen!

After Thanksgiving we will have a BIG Black Friday Sale (7 am – 7 pm) with 25-50% off most everything in the gift shop (excludes consignment items). Shop early and we’ll even be on hand to gift wrap those treats so you can go ahead and stick them under the tree! Happy Holidays from FFM!

Bacon’s Newest Fan

Our niece tried Bacon for the first time at Florida Farmers Market today and couldn’t get enough. Aurora has always been a fan of Florida Farmers Market, but today she had The Works sandwich for lunch and discovered BACON. After she got home she asked her mom to make her some more. Translation: “bacon…..it’s so good, I want some!” 

Costumes Still in Stock!

 

We still have costumes in stock for your little goblins. Come by the market and pick yours up today, or give us a call and we will happily mail it.

New Coffee Club!

Coffee Club

Did you know we had a coffee club now at Florida Farmers Market?

We want you to drink high quality coffee daily just like we do, so we’re going to make it easy for you! Wouldn’t you like to enjoy your coffee every day? Let us help you make the dream a reality. Your first step is joining the FFM Cafe Coffee Club!
The Coffee Club is simple and free to join, there are no monthly fees, and we will have a lot of fun learning together how to make great coffee every day! The concept is simple. We will help you figure out your average consumption rate of coffee, you subscribe to the right amount for you and your household, and we help you keep your household in the good stuff rather than the stale grocery store offering. Starting each day with a better cup of coffee can only improve your day, right?
We will meet at FFM Cafe the first Sunday of each month at 2 pm to try different coffees, work on brewing techniques, and set each member up with the right amount of coffee for their household consumption. Then you get to decide how you want your coffee supplied. You can get a month’s worth of coffee all at once, half a month’s worth, get it ground or keep it whole bean. The idea is that our club members will have the right amount of coffee in the right timing to always have fresh coffee for their household. Even better, when you subscribe, you save money!
Members will get other benefits like: bonus swag, free samples, buddy passes, first offerings, and choices on what we order from the roaster. Although we have no idea why you would want to drop your membership, subscriptions are month by month, so no one is over-committed. The Coffee Club is just a way to save money on something that you already buy and get fun bonuses. You will love how easy it is to maintain a higher level of quality coffee in your household simply by getting it from FFM Cafe on a regular basis! It’s all about getting and keeping the freshest, high quality coffee on hand.

FFM Seeks $150,000 Grant From Chase

Mission Main St Grant
Florida Farmers Market & Cafe has applied for a Chase Mission Main Street grant for $150,000. If awarded the grant, FFM will use the grant money to grow its business and enhance its ability to serve our community. When asked to detail projects in mind to grow the business, Owner Dave Palmer listed several specific projects to Chase.

Some of the high priority project include:

  • Permanent signage on US-331 to the North and South of Florida Farmers Market to increase public awareness of the market and cafe.
  • Outdoor restroom facilities added to the building to handle large crowds drawn by special community events held at FFM.
  • Installation of high tunnel greenhouses to serve as a place for fruits, vegetables, and herbs to be grown to better serve our community with fresh produce and extend the growing season of some crops often unavailable locally.
  • Construction of a roof to cover the existing deck to expand seating outdoors for the cafe and offer shade to visitors of the market.

In addition to funding these projects, some money would be held in reserve to cushion the cash flows of the business during slower times of year. Before FFM can compete for the grant with other businesses also applying for the grant, a minimum of 250 votes must be collected and qualified (requires Facebook). Please support Florida Farmers Market with your vote at the Chase Mission Main Street website located at the following URL:https://www.missionmainstreetgrants.com/business/detail/60817
(The voting link is on the right side of the page.)

Thank you for your votes and for helping us to serve our community better!
