Marando Farms in Fort Lauderdale

Last weekend I finally visited the husband and wife owned Marando Farms in Fort Lauderdale.  Best know for it year-round farmers market, Marando Farms provides South Floridians with a wealth of fresh local produce, grass-fed beef, honey, fresh baked goods, and an extensive supply of natural pet food. Also, there is an on-site café that offers fresh juices and veggie sandwiches.  That day I bought some Sunburst squash, honey, and a fresh loaf of rosemary sourdough bread. 

Marando Farms is also known for it commitment to supporting local farmers and it advocacy around sustainable agriculture.  Marando Farms works closely with local farmers to offer a community supported agriculture program and the farm provides educational workshops focused on gardening and growing sustainably to residents in the community. I am looking forward to visiting again!
