Do not miss!!! We were greeted warmly and that was the beginning of a relationship that will last a long time. We can't believe it has taken us so long to visit this institution. Our waitress has been working there over 30 years and is great! Our coffee is never empty and the food arrives hot and perfect. I didn't... More

My husband was in heaven...He ordered a ham hock and when it came it was the size of my head! Rolls AND corn bread with real butter. Lots of choices for sides. Early bird specials every weekday from 4:00 to 6:00. About a dozen different pies offered for dessert. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal.

Went here on a Sunday morning, waited about 20 minutes (honestly thought we would wait longer) to get a table, it is a smaller building but they can accommodate a lot more people than it looks like from the outside. Service was great, felt more like we were at a family's house than a restaurant because of how friendly our... More

We ate lunch there after visiting Ford/Edison Estate. The food is scrumptious and veggies galore. This is a great place for vegetarians as well as other eaters. I had the fried green tomatoes & bacon sandwich (delicious) with sweet potato fries, my husband had the corn chowder (loved it) and a Julienne salad (plentiful and good). Everything on the menu...

What a delightful surprise! The meals, the atmosphere and the service were all excellent! Friendly staff seated us quickly and made sure that we were aware of all of our options. The pancakes were light and fluffy, the biscuits were to die for and the corned beef hash was the best I have ever eaten. Our coffee was refilled regularly... More

If you want friendly service and southern cooking, you've found the place. We enjoyed delicious baked chicken, sweet potatoes, green beans, mashed potatoes, meatloaf, gravy, cornbread dressing, fried okra and slaw that tasted liked homecooking from the south. Their pie choices were extensive but we were too stuffed to try any. It appears their menu changes each day from the... More

Was driving back to Miami with my family and my wife happened to find this restaurant on google and we took a little detour and eat some slow food. What a great place. Friendly staff and excellent food. I had the fried chicken, my wife the shrimp and grits, and my son had the grilled pork chops. Great country fare... More

First time dining at the Farmer's Market Restaurant. Very good experience with so many items to choose from. I ordered the fish sandwich & fried green tomatoes. Husband had the meatloaf sandwich & fried zucchini.Sandwiches very tasty, but the fried veggies were too greasy. Would have given a 5 star if veggies were better. Also we had the famous home...

Used to visit about once a month. But, this is the second time I ordered mashed potatoes and gravy and it was cold, along with other items in the plate! I can go to other restaurants who charge less money and have a hot meal delivered to the table (IHOP on So 41; Country Cafe in E Ft Myers). By... More

Have been a fan of this place for quite some time but due to my schedule don't get there as often as I'd like to. The Farmers Market is a Fort Myers institution. When you walk through the doors it's like going back in time. In a world where "mom and pop" businesses seem to have dissappeared the Farmer's Market... More
