SeaView’s “Space Bellyacreas” Farmers Market and Papayas
Saturdays 7:30 to 11:30 the SeaView’s local color and assorted Punatics gather together to offer and exchange fresh fruits & vegetables, baked goods, cooked foods and hand made items in an atmosphere of fun and community at Space Bellyacreas in SeaView.
Last Saturday, May 1st, Eileen (shown in the pic) and I shopped there for our stash of fresh bananas, tomatoes and avocados later augmented by a visit to the Pahoa Farmers Market on Sunday for organic Strawberry Papayas, lettuce, jicama, cucumbers and more bananas and tomatoes. Of course, we bumped into many people we know and exchanged hugs and kisses. Always a great way to start off the day.
Note: Papayas at the local store in Gualala where our Mendocino studio is have Papayas for around $7.00 each. Here you can get them sometimes 7 Solo Papayas for a $1.00 and 5 Strawberry Papayas for $2.00 at the various farmers markets. When we were on Kauai, they cost around $3.00 each for Papayas from Puna.
