Introduced to Collard Greens on a lovely day in St. Petersburg. We had never visited the Deuces area of St. Pete and learned about the ethnic/business history of the area at the same time being introduced in a delicious fun setting about the southern favorite Collard Greens. Sponsored in part by Publix, we even received a free can of Glory Seasoned Collard Greens. Festival was very well organized with ample free parking and just the right amount of vendors and food trucks.
A huge tent with linen-covered tables provided a great setting behind the Creole Cafe for the lunch serving of Stewed Collards and Mini Cornbreads ($5.00 pp). Choices offered were collards with smoked turkey or vegetarian collards. We had one of each. Awesome introduction to collards.
Fabulous murals and friendly neighbors completed our terrific adventure.
