The granddaddy of the area farmers' markets. Three sizeable produce vendors plus specialty food vendors plus yummy food to eat on the spot. Very few arts and crafts when we visited. Live music. High end cars. Free parking in the garage near whole foods. Wear a hat and bring your dog.

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 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,...
