This post was sponsored by Fresh From Florida as part of Influencer Activation for Influence Central.

I am a Florida girl that loves her state for many reasons, one being the amazing fruit that they produce. It is so wonderful being able to get fruit and vegetables that are grown right here in Florida. I used two of those yummy fruits in the Watermelon and Blueberry Poke Cake Recipe.

I love that most of the food that I eat is grown at local farms. This brings farm to table to life for me. You can’t miss when you have amazing tasting fruits on your side. My Watermelon Feta Salad is always a big hit at summer parties.

Fresh from Florida has tons of amazing commodities like blueberries, watermelon, avocados, bell peppers, strawberries, tomatoes, seafood, and many more. You can see the full list here.

Do you love blueberries as much as we do, here are some blueberry recipes that you will love: Blueberry & Strawberry Shortcake Bars and No-Bake Blueberry Cheesecake.
