This has to be one of the best farmer's markets we've been to - it's all about food. There were several vendors offering a large selection of fruits and vegetables (the strawberries in February were very sweet). There were also lots of food vendors offering breakfast, lunch and dessert items - take your pick. We particularly liked the made to... More

One of the many things I look forward to when I'm visit the area is to hang at the Sarasota Farmers Market. It's very organized, layer out nicely and stocked with a nice selection of vendors. If you love dog watching (me=petting) you'll be in heaven here. I really enjoy grabbing some great food and Javadawg coffee and listing to... More

Fresh pineapple, too by the time we left, around 9:30, it was getting crowded and hard to maneuver... More

Wanting a Saturday morning excursion to see, taste, and buy a variety of things--then go to the Sarasota Farmers Market. You will not regret it. The variety of offerings is interesting. Watch pineapples skinned and sliced. Choose between many fresh vegetables and meats. Some baked goods. Now fine some pieces of jewelry. Some art work. You want, you look and... More

Sarasota Farmers Market is great, although the prices certainly aren't low. The parking situation and crowds, depending on the time of day of your visit, can make it unpleasant. We went only once during our 2-month stay near Sarasota this winter. If the location is convenient, instead try Phillipi Creek Farmers Market on Wednesdays, starting at 9:00. It's much smaller,...

Whether you are a Visitor to Sarasota or a Full-Time Floridian, this is great fun and there is always something new to see/try! We enjoyed a breezy Saturday here on March 4th with chillier temps than usual but plenty of sunshine too. You can't beat the incredible variety of farm-fresh produce, fruit, meats or baked-goods plus we love to people... More

When on vacation in the Sarasota area we always attend the Farmers Market Downtown at least every other week. A little shopping in this area afterwards is always on tap.

This is a popular farmer's market in Sarasota. Lots of variety in the food products and crafts offered. We recommend it if you have time to see this; Do this after you have seen the main sights, however; i.e., Marie Selby Botanical, Ringling Museum, etc.
