Fort Myers Farmer’s Market finds, Kombucha that doesn’t make your entire face pucker up. I found this booth yesterday at the Lake’s Regional Park Farmer’s Market in Fort Myers, however, I’ve heard about this brand for some time now.
Flying Kombucha is made locally and is different from any other I’ve tried. I admit having a love/hate relationship with this fermented beverage. Sometimes, it is so tart and sour I can only muster a few sips. But not this one. It is actually mild and very well balanced. It’s a formula that owner told me sets them apart and has brought great success.
What is kombucha
Kombucha is a fizzy, fermented tea based beverage that is said to have a laundry list of health benefits. Everything from improved gut health to better sleep and even the prevention of hair loss.
Currently, Flying Eagle does not have their own tap room. However, they are working on it. The good news is that the beverage is distributed so you can find them in many local stores. They also take their draft cart to several farmer’s markets. This is where you can sample the flavors right from the tap. They even sell growlers, like those found in brewery taprooms. Fill them up and take them to go, While there are some flavor staples like Lemon Lavender and Blueberry Cuban Oregano, Flying Eagle also has seasonal blends. Try it. I think you might like it.
An update about those amazing pierogis and Hungarian food that was featured in one of my former Fabulous finds. The owner is relocating and will be leaving Southwest Florida. So if you are a fan, track her market appearances down and stock up on her cabbage rolls, soups and pierogis before they are no long available. You can freeze them. AND, this bread is amazing with the soups.
In the meantime, here are some photos from my Fort Myers Farmer’s Market finds, kombucha from Flying Eagle
