A regular trip to a farmers market is one of the best ways to connect with where your food comes from. Meeting and talking to farmers and artisans is a great opportunity to learn more about how and where food is produced. Wouldn’t you rather stroll around the outdoor lounge patio for fresh produce and pantry foods than roll your cart around a grocery store? The farmers market is a great community hub, a place to meet up with your friends and talk with the vendors in the midst of our wonderful Quail Ridge community.
STRAWBERRIES ARE IN SEASON!
Each winter close to 300 million pounds of strawberries are grown in Central Florida, most within a 20 mile radius of Plant City, Florida. After the Civil War northern farmers discovered that the sandy soil and climate were ideal for producing great strawberries. Since then Florida earned the title of Strawberry Capital of the World.
Florida Strawberry Parfait
2 cups Fresh Strawberries, sliced
8 ounces low fat cream cheese, whipped
2 tablespoon natural Florida sugar
1/2 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
4 graham cracker, crushed

4 sprigs mint for garnish
In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine whipped cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice. Fold the yogurt into the cream cheese mixture. In four shallow glasses, evenly layer cream cheese mixture, strawberries, and crushed graham. Garnish with mint. Serve chilled
