Vendor of the Month
Oyster Creek Tropicals
If you've taken home a plant from the market, you've probably met Josefina from Oyster Creek Tropicals! They offer a well-curated selection of both edible and non-edible tropical plants. Josefina, the owner, ensures that each customer goes home with the plant that is best suited to their environment and lifestyle. Make sure to stop by Oyster Creek Tropicals at the market to check out their selection!

They are unique in that you can eat the entire melon - the crunchy flesh, the delicate skin, and the small seeds! Here are some recipes for inspiration:
Since our vendors change from week to week, we share the lineup in our Instagram stories every Friday. Follow along here!
