The new Boca Grande Farmers Market will be celebrating its Grand Opening on Friday, Oct 3, 2014. A strong showing of support is anticipated for the historic event at 305 Wheeler Road Ball Field. The growing list of exclusively high-quality business owners, vendors, farmers, producers and cultural creatives will be bringing products to nourish the mind, body, and soul.
Recent additions include noted gourmet Italian food importers Sapore Della Vita. Sapore della Vita translates to “taste of life”, and they are proud to offer the island just that in a carefully selected organic and all natural product line straight from Italy. Products are sourced from small artisan producers who have passion for making superior quality food items. Sapore also has their own state side brand, LICK MY SPOON, which is a small batch craft production by Kristine Insalaco-Gaioni. She meticulously sources organic, all-natural ingredients that have contributed to her award winning Caramel Sauces, Jams, Marmalades, Nut Butter Spreads, Biscotti, and other delectable confections.
Another of the many highlights of the market will feature Anita’s Guacamole out of Miami, Fl. The vegan power-punch made only with fruits and vegetables selected at “peak ripeness”, is just like Great Grandma Anita used to make it. With no preservatives, no diary, nor any additives of any kind, this power food uses blends of peppers, tomatoes, onions, herbs and spices all mixed into the superstar Hass avocado and then is elevated by a hint of citrus. Chef Mauricio Mendez is at the helm of one of THE most desired natural foods products in successful Southwest Florida farmers markets today.Everyone is invited to participate in Boca Grande Farmers Market’s celebration of its very first season on the remote barrier island of Gasparilla Island, FL from October 3, 2014 thru April 24, 2015. The market opens promptly each Friday morning at 9:30am. For more information, visit bocagrandefarmersmarket.com or visit us at http://www.facebook.com/farmersmarketfriday.
