Lake Wales - When you visit the Lake Wales' Farmers Market, you will meet a lot of people, as I did, but apparently, I was about to miss the opportunity to meet one special person, so Rob, Donna's husband from RCDC Essentials prevented that. As I was getting ready to leave, Rob took me to meet who, he called, "the queen of the market." And oh boy, meeting her was a great pleasure. The queen of the Lake Wales' Farmers Market was no other that Iraida.

   For those who, like me, have had the pleasure of meeting her, you can tell that she is not only the queen of the place but also the "life of the party." A born and raised Cuban, Iraida came to the U.S. in 1964 and has been gracing us with her presence ever since.

   I invite you to stop by the market and say hi to her. Rumor has it that she sells the best goat cheese in town so that may be something to look for while at the market.
