The Daily GLOB


Happy Wednesday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers.  The Mighty Gator National Champion baseball team stayed alive in the College World Series by drubbing the Texas Longhorns 6-1 yesterday afternoon behind a dominant performance from starting pitcher Jackson Kowar, who struck out a career-high 13 over 6 2/3 scoreless innings. Kowar over matched Texas all afternoon at TD Ameritrade Park, surrendering just five hits and two walks. (Note: The Texas Tech-Arkansas game was postponed until Wednesday).  GO GATORS!



It's Union Street Downtown Farmer's Market Wednesday and Market Elder Farmer Lybrand the market is celebrating the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year with cukes, honey, and a short lecture on why bees do it.

062018marketVENDORCelebrate the summer solstice at the market this week. The longest day of the year tells the bees the nectar flows will soon be diminishing and so the queens begin to lay a new kind of egg containing fat cells so the workers in the second half of the year can live longer and survive the eventual cold weather. Local honey is available each week. Cucumbers are still plentiful but the summer heat will soon limit them to hoop house production. An abundance of peppers-both sweet and spicy- are at the market. Spaghetti and butternut squash are now in the mix as the month of June progresses. The proliferation of eggplant heralds the evolution to the summer season. Local sweet corn is also now being harvested.. Another omen of the looming summer heat is yard long beans which are available. Organic cherry and plum tomatoes are plentiful. Watermelons have joined cantaloupes in increasing quantities. Peaches are still being picked. While displays of beautiful bouquets in a myriad array of colors and styles can be found. Potatoes are plentiful also along with an abundance of squash. Cool weather kale, collards and radishes are still being harvested while ever increasing amount and varieties of beans and blueberries continue the showcase of warm weather crops. Grass fed beef and chicken as well as  seafood are offered every Wednesday. An ever increasing variety of vegan prepared foods is also available. Check the market's products page for a definitive listing of produce. Organic coffee and kombucha are served each week along with a wide variety of prepared foods.
