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."

Many people know that correct pruning of fruit trees and shrubs can lead to a more productive, and more beautiful, plant. Many people don't know how to prune their plants themselves. During the February meeting of the Pensacola Organic Gardener's Club George Shelton explained how to do it.
