Some days I can’t find myself out of a paper bag but last week my navigation disability ended up being serendipitous. After leaving a meeting in Punta Gorda, I took a wrong turn down Taylor Road and saw signs promoting fresh produce and farmer’s market. Following the signs, I ended up at the corner of Pascal Drive and Burnt Store Road at a super duper cute produce market called Punta Gorda Farmer’s Market, not to be confused with the weekly, Saturday morning Downtown Punta Gorda Farmer’s Market.

Outside were what looked to be hand-painted signs promoting “local produce” and “fresh milk.” Inside it was adorable with its country-themed decor. I found an abundance of fresh produce including citrus and tomatoes, locally-produced items (such as honey), and artisan-type foods, such as sweet potato chips I gobbled up, ginger ale made with cane syrup, lovely cheeses, jellies and marmalades, dips, baked goods and other tasty looking items.
