Looking for Organic Produce? By Patricia Harris

Local organic produce has been a rarity at local farmer's markets. That is about to change this season with the introduction of two local organic farms at area farmers' markets:

1. Paradise Farms at 405 Biltmore Way, Coral Gables Farmers' Market (Sat, 8am-1 pm); and

2. Bee Heaven Farm/Redland Organics at Pinecrest Gardens Green Market (Sun,9-2) Pinecrest Gardens (the former Parrot Jungle), on the corner of Red Road (SW 57th Avenue) and Killian Drive (SW 112/111th Street).

Here are two other farmers' markets where you can buy organic, but not necessarily local, produce:

1. Glaser Organic Farms at 3300 Grand Avenue, Coconut Grove Organic Market (Sat, 10am-7pm); and

2. Josh's Organic Garden at Harrison Street and South Boardwalk in Hollywood.
