Marco Island Farmer’s Market

One of my favorite things to do anytime, anywhere, if it is a possibility, is visit the local farmer’s market. Not only can you get reasonable (and often excellent) prices on local fruits, vegetables, flowers, artisan breads, pastries etc., you get to see and sample a variety of things that grow in the area! I am sorry to say that my favorite cheese vendor had already left for the season (only 2 weeks to go). But not to worry, what I didn’t get to spend on stinky cheeses I more than made up for in savory sausages! The whole experience is really “mommy time” where I can slow down… and smell the roses.

I enjoy the whole adventure. Some things look familiar…

And some things look completely exotic!

 

I love to see how the vendors set up their stands.

And I’m a sucker for trying local roasters and honey…

 

Thank you Marco Island Farmer’s Market! …Until we meet again. 🙂

And a quick shout-out for my favorite olive oil by Moz!

    1. I did not get the Jack fruit, but I enjoyed looking at many of that vendors exotic fruits! The market is right on the island, across from the Winn Dixie.

  1. Farmer’s markets…a way of life in my family forever. Not sure how we’d eat without them. Good timing. I wrote a post this a.m. about losing a favorite Amish vendor in our market. They become such good friends over the years. 💕

    1. It is such a loss when we lose our favorite vendors! I love our markets at home too, unfortunately the local markets are seasonal. Thanks van! I’m looking forward to catching up with my blogging friends on Monday!

  2. I love farmer’s markets. They are treasure troves. I used to love going to the one in Guildford when I lived in the UK. I always had to buy a thing or two. I just couldn’t help it! 🙂

  3. Love the pictures Sadie! I am drooling over those tomatoes! The Farmer’s Market is so fun, but I always come home with way too much 😀
