Fairchild Mango Festival Is This Weekend

One of my favorite things about summer is that it is mango season.  This year, Fairchild’s Mango Festival features the mangoes of  Mexico.   I have no idea where the mangoes I buy from my neighborhood pop-up mango stands are from but they are all delicious.  When you are done at the Festival, drive through the streets of Pinecrest and stop by one of the stands.  They are Miami’s version of the kid’s summer lemonade stand up north and if you get more mangoes than you can eat,  freeze the overripe ones for making smoothies, deserts, and salsa, long after the season is over.

If you still have your Sunday, July 7 copy of the Miami Herald, there is $2 coupon for the Fairchild Festival on page 3M.IMG_1364
