Green Cleen is proud to formally announce that we are a new addition to the Pensacola Farmer’s Market! The market has only been operating for a few years, earning year-long operations every weekend just this past year. Since becoming year-round (instead of seasonal) they’ve also earned recognition as a top farmer’s market in the state and nationally. Needless to say, we’re really proud to be a part of it.
The market stretches across three blocks, inhabiting the park-like median on Palafox Street from Garden Street up to Wright Street. The space is packed with vendors selling everything from organic produce, free-range meats, and homemade foodstuffs to unique clothing, local jewelery, and one-of-a-kind art by the artist themselves.
In order to be a vendor, everyone has to sell something that they make, so we started making laundry detergent. I shouldn’t say ‘started’ because I’ve been making my own detergent for years now, but this is my first time mass producing it. I’ve got 15 bottles available for purchase. Personally, I love the stuff. It’s all natural, hypo-allergenic, and has a nice clean smell reminiscent of soap. I’m making my own soap now, too.
This Saturday will mark our 5th appearance at the market. I mentioned they were packed with vendors; they are so overrun with individuals buying booths that many have to rotate. Our schedule seems random to me; sometimes 3 and sometimes 4 weeks will pass without us having a spot, but for the most part we’re there once a month.
I’ll be updating our facebook page, announcing the weeks that we’ll be at the market. This week is one of those weeks (August 24), and I hope to see you there! Look for our table at the end near Wright Street.
