Ride your bike (with basket) to the friendly, convenient outdoor marketplace full of fruits, veggies, fresh seafood, prepared foods, baked goods... and more. What’s not to like? The recent add of more prepared items is particularly appreciated! The local jams are another special treat.

The market never disappoints. We always make this a stop off on our holiday. A vibrant little market - fresh fruit, veg and flowers and not forgetting all the small producers. Get yourself down to the market!

Every Sunday Sanibel has their farmers market. This is a must see during your visit. Fresh seafood, vegetables, breads-just about anything you’d ever want is available. Local vendors at their best.

It is definitely the best little farmer's market in SW Florida. We especially enjoyed the Island Seafood Market fish truck, right at the entrance. Wonderful yellowtail snapper, crab cakes, fish and crab dip. Tomatoes from Rustin, Florida, were especially nice and the flower arrangements were...More

Only Service Dogs are allowed at the market starting this Season (2018-2019). The decision was made by the City of Sanibel who leases the property to the Farmers Market. Please still support the market and the vendors.

They are not open! The market closed in late May of 2018. Didn’t realize that and got very excited for the Farmer’s Market. Very disappointed it was closed.
