Saturdays were made for farmers markets, and unfortunately I haven’t been going to the markets recently. But then I came across a farmers market in Pompano Beach, called Pompano Beach Green Market. So my mother, sister and I woke up early this morning and decided to head up to check the place out.
The place is made up of probably about 20 or so tents, several of them have organic and local fruits and vegetables, others were food stands and also some sold clothing and jewelry. To start off, I bought a little bundle of sunflowers (they are my favorite)
Then my family and I came across a tent that sold Moringa, Sunflower sprouts, and wheat grass shots. I was very tempted to get a wheat grass shot but I didn’t. 😦 My mother bought a jar of 30 Moringa pills. The guy she bought them from was so cool and friendly. He told her to start off with just 1 pill a day and gradually increase it to 2 a day.
Miracletrees.org talks extensively on the health benefits of Moringa and how it helps the environment. Moringa is native to India and parts of Africa, it is said to help with digestion, inflammation, to be rich in protein, and tons of other things. I’ll let you know how it affects my mother and if it actually helps.
I wasn’t really impressed by this farmers market, so my sister and I decided to sit down and eat something. I have never actually eaten a crab cake before so I decided to give it a try. This was a crab cake on a bed of greens with a vinaigrette dressing and it was so delicious, I was very pleased. It was $13 for this plate and that is kind of discouraging but eh whatever. Best thing to come out of Pompano Beach Green Market.
Because this place didn’t impress me I didn’t want to just go home, so I quickly googled a farmers market close by and Living Green fresh market came up (this is not a farmers market)
It’s off of Commercial blvd and I fell IN LOVE with this place. Right away I heard music playing and I got so excited. It was a mix of edm, party and rap music. Then through the window I saw a dj, and I was even more excited! He was so adorable and played really good music.
Living Green has their own brand of salsas and jams and they even have a little café that sells sandwiches, juices and salads. And they had samples everywhere! ❤
I took lots of pictures! I was just really excited to have discovered this place. Now, price-wise its not cheap, but just like anywhere else you can find things that are for a good buy. Of course no one wants to spend a lot of money on food but at the same time, this is your health. So you just have to think about what is more important to you.
This is what we ended up buying:
- Broccoli (My favorite vegetable)
- Ginger juice (Very refreshing, but I do not recommend it if you don’t like ginger, it is very strong)
Living Green definitely impressed me and I am 100% going back to visit and stock up on stuff. This is a one and only store and if you’re going to visit, the dj is only there on Saturdays, so go that day.
Have a blessed and happy Saturday ❤
