Neither the food nor the scenery at Hooters is certified organic, so downtown workers eager to eat lunch by the bay usually settle for something fried, pesticided, or pumped full of hormones. But not today! The Bayfront Park Farmers' Market and Lunchtime Experience opens its flaps on the Flagler Promenade, revealing luscious melons, grilled meat, and milky smoothies made with fresh fruit. No more blue cheese droppings on that Hugo Boss tie, Mr. Downtown Litigation Attorney. Instead, wrap your lips around a big veggie wrap, at peace for once knowing its ingredients came from local farms owned by the little guys.
Live music and the sounds of the water will soothe away those real estate blues, Miss Condo Building Developer, while you fill the vacancies in your stomach with gourmet sandwiches and shish kebabs. If only selling that $8 million corner unit were so easy! And who knows? With all the community interaction developed by the outdoor setting, perhaps you'll strike up a conversation with Mr. Attorney and find true love at last -- or better yet, a tenant! The window of opportunity is 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., rain or shine.
Thursdays, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., 2008
