Being familiar with the Palmer Blvd. location, I decided to check out their relatively new University Parkway facility and found a big difference. Not only is it at least four times larger, it has a superb fresh meat counter and the seafood counter is more extensive, too. Although the rustic style is maintained, the grocery offerings are approaching that of... More

This Amish-type open and rustic farm market offers everything from produce to meats to fish to freshly baked items, very helpful and friendly staff. The produce department is a bit off for me. Should be better maintained with rotten or poor fruit spoiling the rest of the baskets.

Everything Ive gotten here in the Sarasota location has been outstanding, avocados are really good, crab cakes are great, the butcher/deli in the back is on point for freshness for the meat eaters. And the Amish bakery is amazing. Soft cookies you'll ever have.

We think that Detwiler Farm Market is a hidden gem. We were so excited to find such a great place, where we can get fresh tasting vegetables, fruits, meats and fish…… The store is filled with so much more food than I've even mentioned. We love to cook and enjoy it so much more when we can buy fresh ingredients.... More

OMG! I am so thrilled to have been informed of the markets opening near the University Town Center. I've been there 2x's this week & it's only Wednesday today. The market is huge & so spacious unlike the charming store on Palmer. The aisles are easy to navigate & there is so much to see & buy. They are soon... More

Detwilers has an enormous selection of fresh fruits and veggies! Everything looks and tastes fabulous! The Deli, Butcher, and Bakery offer delicious selections. The ham off the bone as well as slab bacon are like none other! Fresh fish everyday. The prices are excellent. You'll love Detwilers! The new shop on University and Lockwood Ridge is huge and has ample... More

We shop there all the time for fresh produce. Pricing will astound you compared to Publix et al. The expanded location on Univ & Lockwood is great. Now offering meats too. One caveat: their prices on baked goods are way over the top. Buy them elsewhere as $8 for a small pie is pretty darn steep.

Great prices and selection on produce, just go after you have eaten! I haven't figured out the best time to go yet to beat the crowds, or if it is always crowded, but this is a great market!!
