Fresh Picks Market

at the HG Christie Park
in Hope Town

By Joanne Feinstein Gates

The Abacos, with its abundance of sunshine and warm weather, and the recent organic locally grown food trend have resulted in the growing popularity of a number of different Bahamian farmers markets.
The Bahamas offer a wide variety of farms growing a great selection of organic food. Om Grown Greens, Abaco Neem, Jethro Farms and Gedeons Farms are just a few examples of the plethora of different locally grown options available in Abaco. There are also wonderful food purveyors such as Monkey’s Uncle and Fruity Freddie. Farm to table farmers markets have popped up all over the United States, and now we are seeing the trend grow in the Bahamas as well.

In Abaco there is a new concept called Fresh Picks that debuted in Hope Town on May 9th. This new concept in farmers markets is due to farmers wanting to bring their products to the people as easily as possible. People love shopping at farmers markets; they mingle through the crowds, taste the scrumptious goods, and discover new products that are all locally grown. But what if they aren’t able to get to the market when it is open, should they have to miss out on all this great Bahamian fare? This is what makes Fresh Picks the next step in the evolution of the farmers market; you will be able to order all of the fresh produce online at throughout the week! All of the fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, and other local goodies will be listed on giving customers a selection of locally grown products to choose from in between the Fresh Picks Market Days. Now you can get the locally grown goodness of the farmers market online at The next Fresh Picks Market is set for October, 2015.
