I'm excited. After a several-year hiatus, the Ruskin Community Market has re-opened, only this time across from the Ruskin Post Office. And it's a win-win all around for produce shoppers, bargain hunters, area growers and local artists and crafters. You just can't trade the experience of chatting with the folks who grow your food.
Right now, it's a small market, with only a handful of vendors, but the potential is there for 70, with ample parking.
Check out the homemade "Fickle Pickles" and...
some amazing summer squash, tomatoes, pickling cukes and pecans.
There's even music by local musician Gary Tatlock on his keyboard.
The Ruskin Community Market is open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Don't forget to take your reusable shopping bags. I keep a few in the trunk of my car.
