From the end of October through the end of May, wonderful green and farmers markets flourish all around south Florida. Some offer flowers, plants, fruits and vegetables along with bakery and specialty foods, while others include artisan wares and unique jewelry or apparel. Wandering the stalls in search of the perfect fresh herb or one-of-a-kind treasure is great exercise and great fun â particularly in our glorious south Florida winter sun.
