I haven't been back to Sarasota in several years, but recently spent a weekend there. The Main Street area has exploded with restaurants and shops, so it is wonderful just to walk around the downtown and explore. If you are there on Saturday morning, don't miss the Farmers Market along Lemon Avenue and State Street, crossing over Main Street. There... More

I alway enjoy the Sarasota Farmers Market. It's got a great location downtown. The streets are closed to vehicles and the front of the market is against a large seashell fountain. Police there make it very easy for pedestrians, strollers, and dogs on leashes to roam the market. There is usually at least one band playing plus recorded music at... More

Variety of things for sale. Live music. Dogs welcome. Parking not bad at all the day I went. An area to sit and enjoy whatever food or beverages you have purchased and listen to the music. Aisles at Browns display very narrow and not inviting to wheelchairs, but otherwise had no trouble getting around in my powerchair.

This market is located in the center of town at the intersection of Main St and Lemon St. It runs two blocks along Lemon, which is closed for traffic when the market is open. Lots of nice stands selling all manner of food and crafts. Parking can be a problem, but be patient and something will turn up. The market... More

Wonderful to see if you're able to buy fresh produce, I unfortunately was leaving the next day so I couldn't appreciate the beauty of the ability to buy fresh. Great to go too to try local food if you're from out of the area, highly recommend going even if it's to just walk around and drink a coffee like I... More

This was our first visit to Sarasota. We got an early start from St. Petersburg to Sarasota (1 hour drive) for the farmers market and lunch cruise on the Marina Jack II. We arrived at the farmers market at 8:30 am and I would recommend getting there early. Today there were places to park on the street as it wasn't... More
