It was an unusual weekend at the Palafox Market with "Slide the City" set up on the north end of where the market normally extends. Lots of people with inflatable rafts and wearing bathing suits wandered down to check out the art products, food, and produce.

It's really starting to feel like summer at the market, too. Watermelons, blueberries, and lots of summer squash were available along with many ornamental plants and flowers, prepared foods, meats, artisanal cheeses, and a variety of other cottage foods.

Squash varieties for sale.

Santa Rosa Farmer's Market Association

Coming up Saturday the Pace area will be home to a new farmer's market. Last fall farmers approached Santa Rosa County Extension's commercial horticulture agent, Blake Baxton, to talk about the possibility of starting a farmer's market in Santa Rosa County.

This Saturday marked 8 years of farmers' selling direct to consumers at the Palafox Market. The market has transformed from a small, seasonal market to a year-round market with nearly 100 vendors. Spring has been in full bloom in northwest Florida and I don't think you could have had a more beautiful day to enjoy the market. Plus, for regulars, it is exciting to see the new produce starting to be available! As Spring heads towards summer lots of new produce will be available: maybe even tomatoes soon!

Many of the people who participated in the 1960’s Sit-ins in downtown Pensacola returned over the weekend for the unveiling of a historical marker honoring their efforts.

Patricia Turner Jefferson kicked off the ceremony, which was held Saturday at the corner of Palafox and Garden streets, right in the heart of downtown Pensacola where the sit-ins took place, "We feel excited that we can say to the state of Florida, to the city of Pensacola, that there was a difference made under the leadership of a remarkable man Rev. William Dobbins."
