We went to this restaurant for lunch. The place is nothing fancy on the inside or out, but the food was pretty darn tasty for a roadside type diner. Everything was fresh and cooked to order. I had the fried chicken tenders which were excellent, a very fresh tossed salad, and a baked sweet potato served with cinnamon on the... More

We were at the Farmer's Market for dinner on a Sunday evening. The food was home-cooked with huge portions; however, some of our selections were average at best - overcooked and/or tasteless. Perhaps it was because we were nearing the end of their day. We also had their homemade chocolate cake, which wasn't much more than a box cake. Should... More

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. I'm sorry you didn't like the cake, and I would definetly recommend the pie. Our food is cooked fresh daily and should remain that way until closing. We hope that you will try us again and be blown away next time. More

The Farmers Market has excellent food and service. They serve good home cooked meals with fresh vegetables, hot rolls and cornbread. And don't forget their homemade pies. You have to come by when your in the area. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I ate at the Farmers Market Restaurant on Saturday March 4 and it was a true Meat and Three just a little ways from downtown but years away in good home cooking like your grandmother made. I love the food and will go back again. The pies were the star of the great meal.

We arrived in February and spent the day in the area. Checking trip advisor, we were advised to try the Farmers Market Restaurant. Wow....we were thrilled. We had a great server, Missy, who made us feel so at home. The food was terrific, especially the generous piece of key lime pie (homemade) It felt so much like Western New York.... More

I moved to Fort Myers in 1974 right out of college and lived there for four years. I soon discovered the Farmers Market restaurant and it became a favorite. Fast forward to today...we come back to visit at least once a year and it is always a relief to find the Farmers Market is still there and thriving! I remember... More

This is a local place and a fantastic find. Founded in 1952 and serving delicious food and fantastic service (Missy). Pulled up to a nondescript looking building, went inside and had a delightful lunch of club sandwich--fantastic bacon and superb fries. Then, with Missy's expert advice ordered coconut cream pie to split with my wife--wow. After a few bites ordered... More

After church on Sunday, the relatives we were visiting took us to the Farmers Market Restaurant. The home-style Southern dishes were very tasty. I enjoyed the fried chicken with mac & cheese, squash casserole and okra with tomato. My husband had the BBQ pork with greens, sweet potato casserole and coleslaw. Everything was great except the coleslaw, which was average.... More
