Meet the farmer that planted the seed that grew a tomato that went to market for you to choose to put on your table for you to eat.
I am thrilled to have discovered that South Padre Island (SPI) has two farmers’ markets! One is hosted by Casa Mariposa, a local guest house boutique, and though I’ve never been, it looks absolutely beautiful!
Next weekend, I’ll be leaving for SPI so I’ve been wondering how I’d manage to get fresh, local produce on the island. I’d thought of taking it with me from Austin, but since I have several stops prior to my arrival, I don’t think the produce would survive. Enter Casa Mariposa.
Casa Mariposa, in addition to being a lovely backdrop for weddings and other events, hosts a local farmer’s market on Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. According to their website, the market is a venue for local growers to sell their produce, bread, juices, and other goodies. Yummy! I can’t wait to stop by to get local fruits and veggies for my smoothies and juices!
More about Casa Mariposa after the visit!
