If you've been craving the Pickle King's New York sour pickles or Grandma Grace's gourmet jelly, your wait is over.
FishHawk Ranch will kick off the fall season with the return of the Farmers’ Market Sunday, Oct. 7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Park Square.
The farmers' market, to be held the first Sunday of each month, has attracted vendors selling everything from homemade treats to handmade jewelry, including the Patuzis, a Valrico mother-daughter team who are celebrating their one-year anniversary at the farmers' market.
Pat and Suzi Patuzi create handmade children's clothing. Each outfit has a matching accessory - hair bows, headbands, bags, doll dresses and more with details like crocheted flowers, appliques, ribbon, decorative stitching and buttons.
The October market last year was the first event they participated in and they've been back ever since. The mother-daughter team recently was a feature designer in the Kids Kouture Fashion Show as part of St. Pete Art & Fashion Week.
