South Florida’s unique sub-tropical climate allows for a long growing season that is reverse of most of the rest of the country. We have bountiful harvests throughout the winter and tropical fruits in the summer.
The links below are to Local Food South Florida, a website that lists sources of local food and shares food related events and news. Most of the information is organized by county, so you can find what is closest to where you are. This is the best local-food-finding resource around and we encourage using it!
Farms - Straight from the field to your plate. The foundation of the local food community.
CSA’s (Community Supported Agriculture) - Support local growers by committing to buy from them on a regular basis.
Farm Stores, Markets, and U-Picks - Buying direct from the source and picking your own.
Farmer’s and Green Markets - Lots of local vendors with fresh produce and artisan treats gathered together.
Community Gardens - It doesn’t get more local than growing your own, community gardens are great places to do just that.
