VENDOR of the WEEK: “Karen’s Crepe Nook”

Many residents and Green Marketers will recall a favorite vendor of years past known as “A Bunch of Crepes”. Originally owned by Ron Spencer (husband to our former Manager Bobbi Spencer), A Bunch of Crepes was a staple for Sunday morning delicacies. Nothing could compare with a freshly crafted crepe made right before your eyes! But in 2012, we bid goodbye to the Spencers from our Market, and Mr. Mike Brierty took over the reins and gave the business the name – “Karen’s Crepe Nook” in honor of his mother.

Since then, Mike has treated us all to amazing combinations of the freshest, handmade ingredients in his masterfully crafted crepes. What an amazing treat to enjoy a hot crepe stuffed with strawberries and the ever popular Nutella. Or maybe blueberries and cream cheese. Or bison and ratatouille. Or a good old-fashioned cheddar, bacon and spinach crepe. (I am drooling just thinking about them.)

If you have not joined us for breakfast one Sunday, now is your reason to get out of bed. A recent patron of the Market was a 76-year-old man from South Carolina – and he had never had a crepe in his life. After enjoying one from Karen’s Crepe Nook, he commented, “WOW, this stuff is excellent!!” You are never too old to try something new in life!!

Seafood Comes to the Market

Beginning the weekend of October 13, 2013, our wonderful vendors, Okeechobee Farms will have a new addition to our Sunday lineup. Along with Florida’s finest grass-fed, grass-finished beef, lamb, poultry, and free-range local eggs, the folks at OF will be featuring a brand new line of seafood. They will be bringing you local, regional, and wild harvested seafood specialties, such as lobster, shrimp, shellfish (including stone crab in season), and line caught fish as well. Finest quality. Fresh to you. Doesn’t get better than the Stuart Green Market!!

Fall into fresh market offerings

Season is upon us at the Stuart Green Market! You can always tell when the farmers return and there gets to be a little, teeny-tiny cool down in the mornings. This week we are happy to have the return of Vertical Horizon Farm produce, as well as Stephen’s Produce join us again with their freshly harvested crops. Soon we will have on board D and D Farm and Kai Kai Farm with their produce offerings. Come and join us for great locally grown food, flowers, baked goods, custom artisan crafts, and freshly made gourmet prepared food for breakfast and lunch.
