By now must of you know this past week was our first week back at the market. It was great to be back at the Market and see our friendly customers after being away for two weeks. Thank you for the warm welcome. The best part was seeing some of you out there bright and early on Tuesday morning!
While we were gone, some improvements were made to the market. New lighting was installed throughout the market and it is definitely brighter in there now! Also, our orange machine grader was removed.
No worries. A newer orange grader machine is going to be installed. Rest assure, the machine will be up and running by the time oranges are back and you’ll still be able to see the oranges and grapefruit tumble around while you wait for your Strawberry Shortcake. Trust me, I can’t wait to have our freshly squeezed orange juice again!
On Thursday and Friday, I travelled to Sarasota for our distributor’s Annual Food Show. As always, they brought some great items for season this year. It’s always fun and exciting to go to events like this where we can find new products to offer our customers.
I also travelled with Ego Girl Outfitter to promote their women’s clothing line. If you enjoy spending time outside and love nature, you should check out their website. It’s full of cute tank tops, T-shirts and sundresses perfect for the Florida lifestyle. You can also find their merchandise at our market, Sisters & Company in Plant City and Off The Wall Adventures in Lakeland.
As I get back on track, I’ll be posting more of my recipes and product spotlights here. With everything going on, my running took a back seat this week, but I plan on hitting the pavement tonight. I only have 4 weeks till the Hooters to Hooters 10 k in September!
