Farmer's Market--Destin or Ft. Walton Beach?

So looking forward to my Destin/Ft Walton Beach trip at the end of March. I would love to hit up a farmer's market. Does anyone have info?
There isn't a lot in that regard because the Air Force owns most of the nearby land that would otherwise be farmed. Places I'd try would be Produce by a Girl Named Toni- it's off the road that cuts from US 98 to Grayton Beach in the South Walton area, and she has a cart out to show where the turnoff to her place from that road, and For The Health Of It grocery store on 30-A in Blue Mountain Beach.
Also you get a number of people selling produce by the sides of the road. Right now, it's a lot of strawberries.
No markets around. I tried the Dept. of Ag. and they report markets in Milton and Crestview. Don't waste you're time. There's a great little farm in Navarre that has his own tomatoes and in season corn he imports from Alabama that is worth the drive , sadly you'll be to soon for him. There is an open air produce stand in Pensacola that has good selection and prices. I can't remember the name, but it has a Jolly Green Giant in front of the joint (no kidding). So, make a day trip and go to Joe Patti's Seafood in Pens. and check-out the produce joint . Take a cooler.
