Local Grower’s Market
You’ll be delighted to meet the producers of local food/products in our county. You can talk to them, ask all sorts of questions, and purchase their products. There will be blueberry and fig plants, strawberry and tomato plants, sauerkraut and chow chow, grass fed beef, and pastured chickens, wild blackberries, and blueberries, free range chicken eggs and freshly harvested orange blossom honey. There will be goat soap and wheat grass, and wheat bread and strawberry jam….along with lots of vegetables and plenty of onions…the farmers had a bumper crop this year.
Fun for the Kids Too
Join in on a hay ride around the farm, get some energy out in a jump house, paint strawberry rocks (to keep the birds away) and buy a strawberry plant to have a taste of fresh berries right at home.
Learn Something New
What’s so great about grass fed beef?

And of Course, the Picnic!
Ahhhh….the picnic. Featuring some of the area’s finest chefs from the Wyndham Hotel in Orlando, Le Cordon Bleu in Orlando, and our very own Graze at Harmony. We’re barbecuing up some grass fed beef, and a variety of exciting vegetable creations using our very own county grown produce.
