Miami New Times' Description
Glaser Organic Farms occupies the largest tent at the Coconut Grove Farmers Market. Tracy Fleming, who has owned the farm with her husband, Stan, for more than 30 years, sells a variety of local and nonlocal produce. The tent is widely recognized for its locally processed, organic raw and vegan foods. Prices are high, especially for the prepared foods and specialty products. Tables are topped with 17-ounce jars of Italian acacia honey for $16 and 16-ounce bottles of organic nut butters for $16.75. Nut milks, processed at Glaser, cost $5.50 for 16 ounces. The majority of the prepared foods are made with certified-organic ingredients. The produce, in general, is more reasonably priced. Organic avocados grown at Glaser retail for $1.60 a pound, which means about $3 apiece. Unlike most farmers' markets, Glaser accepts credit cards and EBT cards. So maybe it's best to think of it as a local, outdoor version of Whole Foods, one that happens to be run by an organic farmer. Like Whole Foods, the prices are high, but that $5.75 container of sprouted hummus -- amid dewy piles of plums and peaches -- just looks too enticing.
