Annalida’s Gourmet Foods by James Desterre specializes in “sinful” sauces and “The Classic Crabcake” along with a Party Collection of relishes and mustards. A cocktail collection includes Gorganzola stuffed olives and a Bloody Mary Collection that is so fresh it’s hard to believe. The Tasteful Hottie—which he dubs “the planet’s most flavorful hot sauce” is my favorite. He sells his wares in Sarasota and St. Pete. Contact James at Annalidas@yahoo.com for more information.
Dufour Family Farms sells “starter plants” for a healthy addition to your vegetable and herb garden. Dubbed “the herb guys” the Dufour brothers grow locally and sell a variety of herbs and a large choice of vegetables you might not normally see at the usual nursery. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
