FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 4/22/10
“Eat Local” is the guiding force behind a new store opening this Tuesday (April 27) in Wimauma. Mabry’s Market brings some of the tastiest foods of our area to the residents of South Shore. Sisters Susan Bishop and Kathy Oliver, owner/operators of a family farm business, have been networking with other small farms for many years, selling their goods through local farmers markets and an innovative on-line market. “This new store is another step in the evolution of our business and a long-held dream
Mabry’s Market carries fresh produce, eggs and herbs from local farms as well as artisanal breads and pastries. And it features locally-roasted coffee, both the beans and the brew for take-out. “We’re searching out all kinds of products from our great state including salsas, sauces, jams, mustards, relishes and dairy foods.” When buying local products, consumers get a variety of fresh foods, they support farms and small businesses in their community, and save energy through reduced shipping.
Sourcing pesticide-free and organic products is also a high priority even though these may come from other parts of the country. All the fresh potted herb plants are certified organic as are many of the
more than 100 dried herbs and spices.
At Mabry’s you will also find specialty items such as Louisiana Creole Rose rice, black beluga lentils, Himalayan pink salt, and all-natural sun-dried tomatoes. The sisters are adventurous cooks and love to try out new dishes. They’ll have lots of recipes available and cookbooks to browse and purchase.
“We chose a family name for our family business. This new market is named Mabry’s in honor of our grandmother, Eloise Mabry Bayly, known to us grandkids as ‘Nana’. Nana and Grampy’s house on Clearwater Beach was the gathering spot for many a family dinner.”
Mabry’s Market is located at 5129 State Road 674, in a shopping plaza one mile east of Highway 301 (opposite Rachel’s Restaurant). It is open Tuesday-Friday 9am-6pm and Saturday 9am-3pm. Fans and customers can follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/mabrysmarket or phone 813-642-0191 for more information.
Remember to come back next week for your local produce, plants, flowers, prepared foods, crafts and specialty items at our Downtown Sarasota Farmers Market.
