We are a small family urban farm offering free range eggs and raw goat milk products including milk, cheeses, kefir and yogurt from our own animals. We avoid chemicals on the farm and our animals are treated as family members first, and then food producing animals. There is no shortage in goat milk this year as we had a gazillion babies last spring and are expecting another gazillion starting in November. You never know when we will pack up the littlest ones and bring them to the market as ambassadors!
We also carry raw cow milk products from JBT Jersey Farm as a service to our customers that wish cow products as well. Pre-ordering to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the market is the best way to make sure your products are reserved when you arrive.
Be sure to try our artisan cold process goat milk soaps from all natural ingredients and essential oils! Expect big things this year as we increase our soap production and go national with a separate soap company! You asked, we expanded.
Variety is the spice of life and at our booth, variety in eggs is the norm. Quail eggs, pheasant eggs, banty eggs (miniature chickens with very big attitudes) and pullet eggs can often be found complimenting the free range chicken eggs in many pastel colors!
We are so grateful to all the wonderful folks at Sweetwater, as we enter our eighth year of participation at the Sunday Market, for providing us this marketing opportunity and making us feel like “part of the family”. We appreciate each and every customer that has walked in our booth and feel truly blessed to know you! Thank you for your patronage!

20 Shekels is a Tampa Bay bakery founded with the simple idea that nutritious bread should be eaten not because it’s healthy, but because it tastes good.
This is our baby, our passion, our love. We’d like to say it all started with a dream, but alas it was not so. We’re a little too piratey for such things. Instead, it went like this:
“Twenty bucks says you can’t make a bread that’s good for you AND tastes great.”
And in the fervor of a 10-year-old shouting out “CHALLENGE!!”, the game was afoot. Now after many moons, burnt fingers and loud expletives, we’re proud to present what we feel is the healthiest, finest, best tasting bread on the market today.
Made entirely from the highest quality, most nutritious, organic ingredients available.
We offer the freshest, best tasting organic and fair trade certified coffee beans in Tampa Bay! We sell 16oz bags of fresh roasted 100% Arabica coffee beans from all over the world! Try a sample and you will be convinced that this is a great coffee!

Our mission at Pop Craft, is to create healthy, tasty frozen confections sourced from local, organic ingredients whenever possible. Pop Craft flavors are unique to us.
When you taste what we have created, you will clearly, unmistakably identify the difference on three levels – sight, smell and taste. In developing a new flavor, it has to hit the bar on all three levels. It does not stop there. We strive for the taste to hit you at the beginning, the middle and the end. A different experience at each stage. Kind of like tasting wine………Wow!
We never use corn syrup, any kind of preservatives, artificial flavors, colors or chemicals in our pops. Instead, we use fresh whole seasonal fruits and vegetables, and use organic products whenever possible. Only the best, freshest and ripest fruits will appear in our pops.
There is a saying in the food business, “your dish is only as good as your ingredients” our dish is always pops, and our ingredients are always the best!
Even people with special dietary needs will be able to indulge. We always have at least one flavor sweetened with the natural sweetener, Agave.
Our fruit pops average less than 100 calories each. You always can count on several non-dairy alternatives. 99.9% of our pops are “Gluten Free”

Welcome to my art jewelry and gifts. All of my items are unique, one-of-a-kind, handcrafted pieces. I design and create my own art beads and pendants in many different media, including metals, clay, resin and glass. I also upcycle materials where I can and get my inspiration from nature, people around me and my own travels and years spent overseas. While my degree is in computer information sciences, I’ve been making jewelry for over 14 years to feed my creative side. Now I’m pursuing my passion for creating wearable art by playing with clay, glass and bits of nature. Talk to me about designing a custom item just for you.

Rich with probiotics, beneficial amino acids and antioxidants – our kombuchas make a delicious and healthful alternative to sugary sodas and juices.

Tampa, FloridaDr. Mehmet Öztan, Farmer, Heirloom Seed Saver, Engineer
Two Seeds in a Pod is a family-owned heirloom seed company that was founded in 2013 by Dr. Mehmet Öztan. The company specializes in Turkish heirloom vegetables and, as of 2015, offers more than 120 varieties of vegetables and herbs from all around the world. Many of our varieties are rare family heirlooms and we are the only seed source in the U.S. for many seed varieties in our catalog. We publish our seed catalog twice a year through our online newsletter at http://www.twoseedsinapod.com/newsletter.
The primary principles for offering a specific variety of seed in our catalog are the following: historical background of the variety and that delicious “from our childhood” taste the heirlooms have. At the same time, we also want to provide seed varieties that are good producers. We are driven by nutritional values, quality and appearance of a specific variety, and not necessarily by how large the fruits grow.
All of our seeds are non-GMO and non-hybrid and we have happily taken the Safe Seed Pledge. None of our seeds are treated or patented, we grow all of our seed stock organically. Our rare heirloom seed research and production gardens are located on The Dancing Goat Farm, a sustainable urban farm located in Tampa, FL
We also produce vegetables for farmers’ markets and collaborate with Chef Gregory Seymour of Pizzeria Gregario (Safety Harbor, FL) to improve the conceptual understanding of the farm-to-table notion in the Tampa Bay area.

I started my natural ovenbaked pet treat business in 2010 in honor and memory of my pet pig, Langston. He only loved fresh and wholesome food such as tomatoes, bananas, greens, nuts and other wonderful veggies and fruits. I decided to take those items and experiment making ovenbaked pet treats using his favorite ingredients and making healthy and beneficial treats, for cats, dogs and exotics. We do not use preservatives, by- products, dyes, additives or harmful ingredients. All natural ovenbaked pet treats are made in small batches and are even made with brown rice and tapioca blends for your pets special needs. It is suggested to store your natural ovenbaked pet treats in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer to guarantee freshness.

My Neighbors Greens is a family-owned, family-operated small farm located in Citra, FL. Jay Cowart, a Tampa native, and partner Tammy Wise, are raising pastured poultry modeled after Joel Salatin’s philosophies on mobile farming. Our chickens are moved utilizing outdoor chicken tractors across the pasture. We raise a number of different poultry breeds, some being heritage as well as meat producing Cornish cross.
Our vision is to develop a small farm that is sustainable and adds value to the land. Developing ways to farm that are not harmful to the environment has always been part of that vision.
While Tammy and Jay reside in Tampa, they maintain a 5-acre farm in Citra. Family members reside on the farm and help with day-to-day activities.

There was a time when herbs were the only way we had to take care of our skin and hair. But as beauty product companies grew, they began to replace the herbs and flowers with synthetic ingredients. As time passed, we forgot the herbal wisdom of our forebears.
These days, herbs are enjoying a rebirth in skin and hair care products. However, the commercial products carry some serious concerns. They label a product herbal, though it is not; just some fragrance oils or maybe a splash of essential oil to make the product appear natural. And I don’t think that is fair to customers. When I expressed this to my husband, he replied, “you should do something about that”.
Being a woman of action, I did do something about it, and that’s how Sweet Annie’s Organics was founded. We decided to pair up together as a husband/wife wonder team and create soap, lotions, creams, hair balms, and scrubs using only natural and organic ingredients (yes, even our preservatives are natural and safe).
I work out of our studio in our West Central Florida home, using it as my creative outlet for mostly soap and skin care product making, but also for jewelry designing, and painting with my daughter.

The Mending Bead was founded in 2014 while recovering from an accident that left me with two broken legs. Not knowing how I’d get through months of being bedridden, I started making jewelry. While mending back to health, I created jewelry using natural healing stones, crystals, hemp, copper and wooden beads. This time of healing and recovery made me realize what my true passion was. After creating so many unique pieces, I wanted to share my mending beads with others who could benefit from their natural healing abilities. I enjoy hearing the stories of all my customers and friends and can help you find the natural stone or crystal that meets your healing needs. I also take custom orders and recently started creating essential oil jewelry using terra cotta clay beads. Thank you for listening to my story, I’d love to hear yours:)

It was once thought that the use of chemical fertilizers would bring in blessings on humanity. For instance, it helped contain hunger and death in different corners of the world. Although chemical fertilizers increased crop production to help feed the hungry, their overuse has hardened the soil, decreased fertility, strengthened pesticides, polluted air and water, and released greenhouse gases. As a result, overuse of chemical fertilizers has actually brought hazards to human health and the environment as well.
Here at the Earth Friendly Nook, we are committed to reversing the effects of over used chemicals that are creating havoc in our bodies as well as our land. As a survivor of breast cancer and a nature and natural advocate, the president of our company only distributes products that are 100% natural with no chemicals, preservatives or GMO’s. We constantly search for manufacturers that produce products that are earth friendly and never animal tested.
Let us help you by sharing our knowledge of how you can look and feel better, and how you can maintain a healthy environment. When you purchase our products, you are supporting the very reason why our company came into existence. We want to reverse toxins that have built up in our bodies and in our land and we want to “Heal the Earth Naturally”.
Everyone seems to have a beginning, ours, two sick babies. Our son experienced an intolerance to dairy, while our daughter had to avoid dairy, corn, soy and eggs. During my desperate effort to protect our children, I learned of the many things not to consume and learned of certain ways to prepare foods that we should partake. With the guidance of wise ladies in my life and a humble spirit, I created a dessert free of our allergens. Once this concoction arrived to parties and gatherings requests for personal orders were voiced. After coming to the realization that we had the interest of ladies, men and children we were going to have to give this a try. So a year later we are blessing the lives of many with a sweet yet salty snack that catches your attention and stays on your mind. We promise this will be the best mix of organic dates, soaked pecans, organic coconut oil, organic cinnamon, sea salt and mini chocolate chips you’ve ever had!
