I am vacationing at Indian Rocks Beach in a couple of weeks and am hoping some people in this group could help me out by recommending some good (preferably organic) shops/markets that are nearby.
Any help is very much appreciated.
Here is some info that may be of some help to you. Since you are going to Indian Rocs Beach, your best place to get good organics will be in St. Petersburg, Fl. Here are three places that I think you will find helpful.
1. Earth Organics Market, 6651 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg: 727-347-5682
2. Rolling Oats, 2842 Dr. Martin Luther King St. N., St. Petersburg: 727-821-6825
3. Leafy Greens Cafe, 1431 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg: 727-289-7087: www.leafygreenscafe.com/welcome.html
I have been to Rolling Oats which is an organic food market. Very good place.
The Leafy Greens Cafe is a great place to to eat out. All they serve is living organic food. Very well prepared. Limited menu, but delicious. I suggest going on there web site for more info and their menu. ENJOY!
Rolling Oats and Leafy Greens Cafe are not that far from each other.
Also when driving in St. Petersburg pay attention to an address if it has an N or S, etc after the address. This will make a difference and take you to different parts of the City. A GPS helps to navigate St. Petersburg easier. Have a great time!
Thanks a lot B'jaia, I really appreciate your help!
I would also recommend Nature's Food patch at 1225 Cleveland Street Clearwater, FL 33755-4908. Most of their produce is organic and they have pretty good dates there regularly.
Those are all good places but to get larger quantities you want to go somewhere that sells bulk. The Dunedin Farmers Market on Friday and Saturday from 9-2. There is also a Farmer's market in Safety Harbor, Palm Harbor, Clearwater, as well as Dunedin. There is a farmer's market in Tampa off East Hillsborough called Sanwa. The produce is local but not organic. You can get cases of fruit for a good price.
