Delray Beach Green Market – Recipe Mojo on a Sunny Saturday

I needed some sunshine this morning and South Florida delivered bright sun, temps easy into the 80’s and a lovely morning to cruise and shop at the Delray Beach Green Market.  The Hungry Goddess Kitchen needed some fresh, local food love and, WOW, the Delray Beach Green Market delivered.  I had not been since last year – our Green Markets usually start in the fall and end in late spring.

There was lots of produce available – organic and local non-organic, plus seafood, eggs (chicken and duck!), PORK BELLY (did I mention PORK BELLY????), actually all kind of meats, flowers, other lovely munchy food options (like a cannellini bean, avocado and kale salad that was SO scrumptious from Inika Foods), organic doggie and kitty treats, and so much more.  It was just an overall great place to spend the morning.

The shopping bags were full – I came away with quite a haul to get back the cooking mojo this week.  I told you about the pork belly, right?  (MOJO!!)

For those in South Florida, this is definitely worth a drive and then you can make a day of it and have lunch/dinner on Atlantic Avenue in Delray.  Don’t forget a cooler for your edible treasures at the Green Market!.  Strolling is optimal in Delray Beach, whether around the Green Market, up and down the Avenue or along the beach.  Delray Beach Green Market is held at Old School Square Park which is right next to a perfectly positioned parking garage.  No charge at the parking garage until 4pm on Saturday.  You can get more info on the Delray Beach Green Market Facebook Page.

A few of my favorite shots from this morning …

Those lovely little honey tangerines at the bottom of the pic will be featured in a salad recipe this week and are straight from Hornbuckle Family Farms! The flavor was … staggeringly good.

OK.  So I saw this basket of bread from one of the (IMO) BEST BAKERIES in the area – Old School Bakery.  I had a madness moment where I wanted to snatch the basket and run for it.  This could be because I am REALLY focused on a 90/10 Gluten Free thing at the moment and these delectable batons of gluten would totally blow it.  For those of you who are indulging – you can go direct to the bakery or hit the market and INDULGE FOR ME.

My most favorite honey in the whole wide world is Black Mangrove  honey from the Florida Keys.  I have only been able to get my honey fix when I find these lovely people at area Green Markets.  I stocked up and also went for the Avocado Honey.  And the Florida Bee Pollen.  It is safe to say that I got my honey fix going ON.  Recipes featuring the Black Mangrove honey:  Winter Abundance Bowl and my Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone Cheese and Fennel Pollen.  I am dreaming of a gluten free banana bread pudding with it soon – what do you think??

These are just some highlights.  For all of the pics, you can check out my Flickr set here or my Kimberly facebook album here.  And for up to the minute excitement, you can always follow me on Hungry Goddess Instagram!

I had some fun conversations and connections today that will be nourishing the posts here on HG for the next week or two.  And you do not want to miss the pork belly or the duck eggs both purchased from Farriss Farm.  Or the organic Lacinato black kale.  If you missed them, it would be sad.

PLUS … stay tuned to Hungry Goddess Facebook to see how this picture and the Delray Beach Green Market are connected.  I blame Tweedle’s Doodah kitty cookies.

  1. Dearest Hungry Goddess

    We appreciated you mentioning us and your lovely photo of Tweedle Pet Products booth at
    Delray Beach Green Market. Thank you.
    I noticed your kitty playing with a bag, and you thinking #Tweedle’s Doodah Natural and Organic Kittiy” cookies of shrimp and wild alaskan salmon, had something to do with their game.
    Well, Miss Goddess, you should surely try my hydro-organically grown Catnip I grow, and freshly harvested each week. Who knows what your kittiy would do after they tried “Tweedle’s Catnip”.
    I enjoy looking at your photos, and sense the aliveness of the moment you seem to capture..

    Looking forward to seeing you again Kimberly
    Continue to share your beautiful photos
    Best Wishes
