It is farmers market season again in Palm Beach County, and there is one opening this weekend in Jupiter. This weekend marks the start of the season for J-Town Farmers Market. Previously known as the Jupiter Markers Market at El Sol.  The market will be open Sundays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through the end of April at the El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center parking lot, 106 Military Trail in Jupiter.

The community garden coordinator at El Sol, selected longtime Jupiter resident, Cliff Ross, to run the event. Ross wants to attract local vendors, mainly because the market is in what he calls the “heart of town”. That is how the new name came into play as Ross thought "J-Town" gave it a nice local feel.

Picking a favorite cookie seems like a nearly impossible task, but somehow every state in the US has managed to have a different cookie listed as their state’s top cookie. Some remain loyal to the original chocolate chip cookie and sugar cookie while other states prefer a nontraditional cookie.

Floridians have chosen their favorite cookie to serve at holidays is the Key Lime Pie cookie or the Key Lime Pie sandwich cookies filled with a tangy cream. The cookies are a soft buttery graham cookie with a key lime-flavored icing on top or cream in the middle.

Thanksgiving gatherings in South Florida may be different than in other parts of the United States just in part due to the glorious weather!  Bright skies, pleasant climate, and cool breezes are easy justifications to stay out of the kitchen and go outside with visiting family and friends.

Make time for a round of golf at one of the many signature golf courses in the Jupiter area. Have a smashing tennis match or leisurely day at the beach with guests by simplifying the Thanksgiving menu just a smidge. Merely prepare some things in advance.  While the turkey is roasting away in the oven, nibble on a couple of The Food Network elegant light bites and reminisce on all the over all the things for which you are grateful.
