As you may have heard, the Palafox Market has been cancelled, at least through the end of March. This season had started as our best ever, so we are very disappointed to lose the Palafox Market downtown.
We have been in the process of inoculating more logs than we’ve ever attempted before, and no matter how this pandemic plays out, people will need food. We plan to continue delivering to Pensacola as long as we are allowed to do so. We anticipate large quantities of mushrooms from our inoculated logs, with big harvests starting in May or June.
Susan at the East Hill Market on 9th Avenue is allowing us to set up our tables tomorrow, Saturday the 14th, in her parking lot. If a sufficient number of customers show up to purchase our fresh mushrooms, herbs, eggs, turmeric, and other products, we will plan on returning most Saturdays for the remainder of the year, regardless of Palafox Market closures. Here is the address 1216 N 9th Ave, Pensacola, FL 32501
Our mailing list only includes about 230 people, so please spread the word that Sweetbill’s will be at the East Hill Market this Saturday from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM.
We’ll also be informing our customers as to our location and products through our Facebook page.
If there are any extra steps we can take to minimize your concerns about the Corona Virus, please let us know.
