    Default Farmers markets

    I visited the Marshe did Playa last Saturday. I found interesting local products, fresh produce, and friendly vendors. It is on the grounds of Kong Bonaire, a block away from the animal shelter "garage sale."
    Today I tried to find the Tera Kora Ranch Market. Tera Kora Ranch is on the dirt road immediately after the ball field on Niki Boko Sud. I had read that there was a market there on the 2nd and 3rd Saturdays. It looks like a nice setup for a market, except there was nobody there. Just a few cars for sale. Does anyone know about that market?
    Has anyone bought produce at Krusada, the rehab program on Kaminda Laguna with the greenhouses? I'd like to try that too.
    And who remembers when the only fresh veggies came on Tuesdays to the stand by the docks? :-)

    Krusada is open 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM Monday to Friday. The best time to get there is about 10:30 AM, after they have harvested for the day, and before they sell out. They have organic spinach, arugula, basil, mint, and depending upon the season, long beans, tomatoes, bok choy, and some other items.

    In regard to the other markets, I have found what you found, Dee, sometimes you go when they are scheduled, but there is nothing or only one or two stalls. But you can find all the schedules for markets which are supposed to happen at http://www.infobonaire.com/finding-f...grown-produce/
