Milagro Farm Eggs

Find Greens, Eggs & Ham and a Basket Full of Fun Activities at the Market!

It’s a green Easter celebration at SFC Farmers’ Market at Sunset Valley this Saturday at 11:00am! Concha will be grilling up some fresh Gulf fish with greens for a demo, the Easter bunny will be on hand, we’ll have an egg-stravaganza of activities for kids and a one-week-only kids’ artisan market with a kaleidoscope of handcrafted items for sale, all made by artists and craftsmen under age 18. Downtown, kids are invited to join in the fun at the L’il Sprouts tent making egg carton gardens to take home. Click here to see what else is happening this week at the markets »


Backpack full of Greens

Drink Your Greens

No time to cook? There are still plenty of great ways to get your greens in and make sure you're still on the happy plate plan! This sweet green smoothie is one of our favorites. Fresh, in-season greens, sweet fruit and tangy, creamy probiotic-rich yogurt blend up quickly for breakfast on the go or a nutrient-dense and filling snack anytime. Want more fresh ideas?
