My family is on vacation in Florida right now. I was wondering if anyone in the area has a food forest with good crop of fresh fruit they'd be willing to sell a bit of surplus from? Just a small quantity for the 3 of us to eat fresh. We're currently in Sanford, FL, and will be driving down to Naples tomorrow and stay there for a few days, then we'll drive across the everglades to the Keys (Islamorada) and stay there a few more days, and then drive back home along the east coast of Florida. Or if you know any good local farm-stands/markets in the Naples area, Islamorada area or east coast of Florida, I'd be interested in that too.

We're from Ontario (Canada) so we don't have the opportunity to eat freshly picked tropical/sub-tropical fruit there so I thought it would be cool to look for some while we're in Florida.

I hope some of our Florida members will see this and invite you to come get some fruit.

Also, I found these that might help, pick your own sounds fun:

I have no idea if any of these are open this time of year.
