The Best Farmers Market in the U.S. is in Miami, Florida

Most people would probably say that choosing the best farmers market in the country would be based on selection, prices, quantity, how much is organic, crowds, and overall experience.

For me, it is much more simple.

Which farmers market will dictate my entire travel schedule just so I can be there for it?

The only one that fits this criteria is the farmers market put on by Glaser Organic Farms in the Coconut Grove section of Miami. I will literally book my plane tickets so as to guarantee I am in Miami on a Saturday, the only day of the week that it is open.

What makes it so great?

Not only can you shop from a very wide selection of fresh and organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, crackers, and other assorted dried goods, but you can sit down and have the most amazing raw food lunch.

You’ll be able to pick from a huge raw salad bar, nori rolls, pizza, fruit cakes, juices, nut milks, coconut waters, and desserts.

But most notably, you’ll get to eat the best raw ice cream that I have ever had. And having eaten raw ice cream from the top raw food restaurants all over the U.S., I firmly believe that nothing is as good as the one here.

If you live anywhere in South Florida or are making a trip to Miami, make sure to check out the farmers market by Glaser Organic Farms in Coconut Grove.

It is an absolute must-visit destination for me whenever I am in town and when I lived in Miami from 2005-2008, I was there every single Saturday, without fail. It is that awesome.

The market is open on Saturdays at 3300 Grand Avenue in Coconut Grove from 10-7 and for directions, click HERE.

Whole Planet Foundation is Transforming Lives in Costa Rica

Last week in Costa Rica, I visited with some women entrepreneurs who are receiving microloans from the Whole Planet Foundation, a non-profit organization of Whole Foods.

I have written about the Whole Planet Foundation before and the amazing job that it is doing around the world but meeting the loan recipients in-person gave me a much greater appreciation for the impact that this program is having.

Women entrepreneurs from impoverished communities receive loans, starting at a few hundred dollars, to start businesses – baking, sewing, buying animals, running a small store, etc. With a 98% success rate (only 2% of the loans default), this incremental revenue plays an essential role in improving the well-being and welfare of thousands of families.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Dewayne “Lee” Johnson Sued Monsanto and Won $289M from a California Jury

Last weekend, I had the special opportunity to interview Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, the groundskeeper who sued Monsanto for giving him cancer and was awarded $289M from a California jury.

Dewayne Johnson was in town to attend the premiere of the documentary Ground War — a filmmaker’s investigation into the death of his father takes him deep into the world of golf, chemical lobbying, and citizen activism, where he learns that the rampant use of pesticides around the world may be far more damaging than he thought.

Common Ground Country Fair in Maine is an Incredibly Special Event

For quite a while, I had been hearing all about the Common Ground Country Fair in Unity, Maine and decided to finally make the trip up north last week to see what the enthusiasm was all about.

Needless to say, the event exceeded all of my expectations, and it proved to be a truly special weekend. Not only is it rare that you can go to an event of this size and be able to eat organic food all day (there are no organic meal options at Expo West or Expo East), but you are surrounded by thousands of people who are also deeply committed to this way of life.

In its 40th year, the Common Ground Country Fair is an annual event put on by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) and is a celebration of rural living. There are speakers, seminars, demonstrations, food and craft vendors, and a large farmers market.
