After a long week, Persimmon Hollow is the perfect place to unwind. This craft brewery provides some of the best American and Belgian-style craft ales in the state of Florida. Since their opening in 2014, Persimmon Hollow makes it their passion to ensure creativity in every glass of their unique beers. Once you meet founders Robbie and Andy, you will never be a stranger again. It is the perfect place to get your weekend started right.
After you relax with that one-of-a-kind beer, walk next door to Artisan Alley for the weekly Artisan Alley Farmers Market. There you will find a group of local farmers and artisans selling items such as local produce, bread, coffee, cheese, honey, pickles, tea, meat, fish, eggs, as well as local art. Once you begin walking the open-air market and interacting with the vendors, the creative vibe is contagious.
3) Dinner at Bake Chop
When you are hungry, the Bake Chop will satisfy, not only giving you that physical sustenance, but does so in atmosphere that feels like you are sitting down at the family dinner table. The name is simple and comes from the passions of the founders to create amazing food and delicious baked goods. All meats are pasture raised or free range that are grass fed and hormone free. All vegetables are sourced locally from independent farmers. The fare is a unique blend of this and is prepared with passion, just like a home-cooked meal. Don’t forget to try the sweet potato fries!
4) Coffee from Trilogy Coffee Roasters
Sometimes after an amazing dinner, you just want the perfect cup of coffee to top of the evening. A one minute walk from Bake Chop is the new location of Trilogy Coffee Roasters. Trilogy has an amazing selection of coffee in atmosphere that is modern and friendly. With their custom pour overs, each cup is crafted individually for the customer. All coffee is imported and then roasted on site. Once you taste the freshness of Trilogy coffee, you won’t be a stranger, thanks to the great coffee and friendly staff.
