Best Lettuce in FLA

We get some of the best lettuce in from Charlie over at Hammock Hollow Herb Co. He only sells to a few select restaurants around Orlando, but hooks up some of the best chefs around like Daniel in NYC. If you attended the James Beard Awards last year when the theme was local, fresh and sustainable headed up by Dan Barber. All the chefs at the reception that were serving food picked their favorite local farmer and showcased their products in their passed apps. Melissa Kelly has a Primo here in Orlando, an of shoot of her restaurant in Maine. Her pick for the James Beard event was Charlie's vegetables at Hammock Hollow Herb Co. He works a little differently than most of your normal purveyors, a truck shows up on Tuesdays and Thursdays(maybe) and they unload a pallet, or two pallets or two boxes. You never really know what you are going to get. I can't wait for spring peas and summer chanterais melons.
