Comment of the Day!


This is about the China Garden restaurant. My husband and I have bought food from there for take out several times. It is kept clean and very nice. The last order we bought for take out was for beef fried rice. Often we get beef fried rice from different Chinese restaurants and it is usually comparable. This was totally unusual.It had strips of beef not just on top but all through the rice. Generally I have fried rice for breakfast during the week. With some medical problems including allergies and having to force protein, this is recommended by my dietician. I will keep frequenting this restaurant.

Happy Wednesday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers and a very happy middle of the first week of April  to you.  How appropriate today is International Carrot Day. are you aware of the fact fast-growing cultivars carrots  mature within three months (90 days) of sowing the seed, while slower-maturing cultivars are harvested four months later (120 days). Carrot roots contain high quantities of alpha- and beta-carotene, and are a good source of vitamin K and vitamin B6.  If anyone told you the belief that eating carrots improves night vision it is a myth put forward by the British in World War II to mislead the enemy about their military capabilities.




It is Union St. Downtown Farmers Market Wednesday and According to Market Elder Charlie Lybrand this is the market's 22nd anniversary.  Wow GLOBers!   Happy Birthday to an integral component of Downtown Gainesville continuing to be a very happening place deep down in Florida.  Farmer Lybrand is seeing stunning blues and vibrant yellows of Blueberries and Squash at the market today:

From a blighted core of government offices and bars a transition has been made to a vibrant city center. Through the many changes the market has persisted and grown and is proud to be able to say it is one of east Gainesville’s true success stories. So thank you to all who have supported us through the years and through all the changes that have been necessary to survive and thrive. Please continue to support the market as it undergoes continuous change in an effort to thrive for another 22 years. Spring is upon us and our hardworking farmers have made it through the winter and are already beginning to harvest warm weather crops. Blueberries and multiple varieties of summer squash are now being offered. While the Arts Market in Sun Center continues to strive to aid in the development of the art district anchored by the Hippodrome Theater for so many years. Handcrafted one of a kind paintings and prints, candles, honey, soaps, scarfs and custom jewelry are available each week. Find us on instagram @artsyfarmersmarket. Vegetables, baked goods and other prepared foods are available on BDP. Grass fed beef and chicken as well as  seafood are offered every Wednesday.
