HOMEGROWN NEWS




Some of you may have noticed that each week there is less Florida produce being offered on our market, and the season is to blame. Each year our farmers try their best to keep producing crops through the summer heat and rain, but the elements, along with critters, usually win out. This is why you are seeing more produce from the north and even the west coast. In the past we have sourced only local produce, but that left us with a bare market. Per our members request we started offering organic produce options from other part of the country. Our local farmers are doing the best that they can and while availability may be decreasing they are still growing. Please continue to support Homegrown and our local producers throughout the summer.

“Florida gardens are unique in that many growers have their off-season in the summer. Florida’s summer sun takes a toll on traditional crops familiar in more northern gardens. One hurdle gardeners face is the desire for the summertime tomato. Tomatoes are not considered a summer crop in Florida, mainly because of physiological limitations — tomatoes will not set fruit if nighttime temperatures are above 70°F. Cherry tomatoes will sometimes keep producing in the summer.” -UF/IFAS Extension
