This is a wonderful compendium of all kinds of exhibits, booths and displays. It's a farmer's market, so yes, there is produce and lots of it. From standard agricultural practices to purely organic you can find everything from eggplant to zucchini. But there's a whole lot more - including a new-found favorite, "saltwater purslane" and there's "The Pineapple Man," who... More

Wonderful foods and great live music. Don't miss it. We loved hearing "Big Night Out" playing in the street and enjoyed a really good Bar-B-Que sandwich.

A great farmers market, with real farmers, food stalls, and lots of variety among vendors. Musical performances at various times. A good choice for lunch while shopping.

We enjoyed walking around, great variety of vendors, and products offered. I bought yummy cookies, towels and really wanted some the flowers but as we were traveling couldn't keep them alive until we returned home so I had to just watch people walking with them. Great place to find something, a little for everyone.

While recently spending a weekend in Sarasota, we stumbled across this wonderful craft and farmers market. A lot of locally grown vegetables, many which were organically grown, and several hand made crafts. The main street was blocked and made it easy and convenient for shopping. A recommended stop if your in the area.

We visited the downtown Sarasota farmers market at about 7:30am, shortly after it opened and found some great produce. Food available included a wide array of vegetables and fruits, fresh fish, baked goods, eggs, and other items such as olive oils, sauces etc. I believe there are also some meats. It was a treat to find fresh strawberries and other... More

Farmer's Markets don't get much better than this one. There is a great selection of items you actually may want to buy. Bring a shopping basket and a cooler with ice - there's a lot of fresh local seafood and a couple of prime meat vendors, too. The street food options are all good - the Hungarian pastry and the...
