Start a Garden

Winter is a great time for planting on the First Coast. What better way to wrap up the year than with planting a garden to enjoy fresh grown veggies year round! Visit us online for an article on how to build your own raised bed garden. If you do it…take a picture and tag us on Instagram #firstcoastmagazine.

Eat Out at Sbraga & Co.

Top Chef winner Kevin Sbraga just opened his new restaurant at 220 Riverside Ave / Unity Plaza this week. We checked it out already, and the food, drink and ambience are fantastic. Eat at the urban core’s newest foodie hot spot…we recommend the octopus.

#5 Go Outside and Play

Enjoy a day at the Slow Food First Coast Tour de Farm

If you have never done a Slow Food First Coast Tour de Farm, you are really missing out. For one day of the year, farmers from across the region open their doors to the public. It is an amazing way to spend the day outside learning about our local food community, and a great chance to sample some delicious homegrown fare. Check it out this Sunday from 12 to 5 pm.
