Fred has some lovely Greek delights today. I purchased along with my salmon, grapefruit and pears, a box of Finikia.
“The cookie is made using flour, baking powder, orange juice, and oil. No dairy products are used. After baking in the oven, the finikia are rolled in a mixture of cinnamon, sugar and ground walnuts. Melomakarona, another type of Greek cookie dessert, are made with the same ingredients, but after baking, they are dipped into a syrup mixture consisting of sugar, honey, water, orange zest, and cloves. Then they are rolled in the ground walnut, sugar and cinnamon mixture.”
The latest from Fred.
Yup, another year has past and we arrived at NATIVE SHRIMP season 2013. come and get’em. just call or respond and we’ll be glad to sell them in any form you’d like.

Need bigger shrimp?? I’ve ordered some fresh (chem-free) North Carolina’s for Fri.
Both of these critters simply can’t be beat for freshness, texture, taste..The season won’t be forever , as a matter of fact the tonnage is very limited and once reached ..the end. so treat yourself.. or wait til the 2014 season.
I know a couple of hard working ladies trying to get a business established. Both have superb skills and recipes. you know Karimah, with all her Lebanese nibblers(good selection and new arrivals yesterday.) Then there’s Karol from Manchester , a long time customer, who has no equal to her Greek pastries and a Spanakopata. we have a little table set up of her goodies and hope you’ll support her or I’ll end up eating them all.
We @ FFD even have a few or our own creations.
