Sail away with me

"Well, it's not far down to paradise

At least it's not for me

And if the wind is right you can sail away."

Christopher Cross

Get ready to fall in love with small-town life. This little-known waterfront gem has the most adorable downtown with a river running through it. At a fraction of the price of its Pinellas county neighbors, New Port Richey is a pleasant surprise. Think lighted holiday boat and golf cart parades; oh yes, it's that cute. New Port Richey is only 50 Minutes from Tampa and Downtown St.Petersburg, yet worlds away.

Farmers Welcome

“Green Acres is the place to be.

Farm livin' is the life for me.

Land spreadin' out so far and wide

Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.”

Vic Mizz

Farmers have made this small town a gardener’s paradise. Jim Kovaleski is the man responsible for this neighborhood feast. His influence is seen throughout the community gardens. You will find Jim working 60-70 hours a week in his gardens to feed the community. His labor of love has made New Port Richey's farmer's market the best in the bay area. His grassroots movement has resulted in the residents growing their own food. This bountiful gardening movement is showcased at Tasty Tuesdays farmer's market. Your weekly opportunity to enjoy locally grown produce, meet the farmers, and get gardening tips from the man himself.
