Lovely market downtown Sarasota. Various place where you can get a coffee and sandwich. Especially the double-decker bus is a great place to sit upstairs for a small bite and drink. There is a lot of fresh fruit around and breathes a nice atmosphere. Nice...More

The Sarasota Farmers Market reflects the upscale nature of the resort city. First rate produce, some organic, beach products, and crafts. But the best treat was a pristine garage filed with vintage cars and art. All part of the Market vibe.

Love the farmer's market. Fun stroll, interesting vendors, and a huge organic produce section. See and be seen, with dog.

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...More

The market is located downtown Sarasota. The easiest way to find us is to go to Main & Lemon.
