Who We Are
Produce Buddies is a family owned produce company established in 1988 by our Nana. Being raised in the produce industry allowed my sisters and I to develop relationships with many local farmers and artisans here in SWFL. Since I can remember my Nana has always been a staple at the Cape Coral farmers market on Saturdays and the Marco Island market on Wednesdays. My sisters and I would dream of a day when we would be able to drive! So we could help our Nana expand the family business, fast forward to 2019 and were happy to say that we are the largest farmers market company in the state of Florida. From Naples to Palm Beach Gardens to Vero Beach, as a family were at 12 farmer markets a week. Rain or shine, with a smile on our faces!
Our Family Farm
One of our many goals as family has been to grow and harvest our own crops. In 2015 we purchased 5 acres of land in Punta Gorda with the vision of clearing the land and building multiple hydroponic organic greenhouses. With a lot of hard work we made our dream a reality in the summer of 2017, just in time to start planting for the upcoming season. So we thought.. Hurricane Irma had other plans.. Like many others in swfl we suffered from the wrath of the storm and had major setbacks. Having the farmer markets to run and families to raise, the rebuild of our greenhouses took a little longer than expected.
With perseverance and determination as a family we had to fulfill our dreams of having our own hydroponic organic greenhouses. In December of 2018 we finished construction on our greenhouses, and finally started growing! We are currently growing tomatoes, pineapple, cucumbers, multiple verities of peppers, zucchini, jackfruit, avocadoes, and much more. We encourage everyone to come out to our family farm this upcoming growing season (October-May). We are excited to teach and show you exactly how your fruits and veggies are being raised!
