Harpoon Harry's in Key West

We have a lot of favorite places to eat in Key West, and near the top of the list for Joe is Harpoon Harry's. Joe loves Harpoon Harry's because it is like a classic dinner right down to the daily dinner specials. Even though it is right across the street from the Historic Seaport you'll still find a handful of Conchs sitting at the counter, and on the counter is where you'll see the apple pie or carrot cake, which is probably what Josh likes most about Harpoon Harry's. We've been to Harpoon Harry's lots over the years for both breakfast and dinner and we appreciate the affordable, honest food at a place where you don't have to get dressed up or call ahead for a reservation. So the next time you are in Key West be sure to drop by Harpoon Harry's, and since they don't take credit cards be sure to bring cash just like Josh and Joe Travels!

Key West Farmers Market at Bayview Park

These past few months we've really enjoyed being able to go to the farmers market in Key West. The farmers market is on Thursday's at Bayview park which is in our neighborhood, so we can walk over and grab a few things that are hard to find at grocery stores. Joe is always on the lookout for key limes because he takes lime in his sweet tea (you should try it). At the market there is are vendors all the way from Homestead as well as a few more from around the Keys, so when you spend money at the farmers market you support your neighbors, and we think that is important, especially following a year when Florida was impacted by a major hurricane. Plus when you shop local you find special local products like keys bees honey and chocolate dipped croissants. One Thursday we even picked up our lunch at the farmers market - local bbq with brisket and ribs so we couldn't turn it down! So if you are in Key West and happen to be at the farmers market, be sure to stop and say hello if you see Josh and Joe Travels!
