Established in 1979, The Sarasota Farmers Market is a non-profit organization with a 30-year tradition of providing Sarasota with local produce, plants and prepared foods. Held every Saturday from 7am to 2pm in downtown Sarasota around the area of Lemon and Main, the market is buzzing with local residents and visitors who are drawn to the area, taking advantage of the pedestrian friendly streets, fresh produce and popular food trucks, that cater to everything from hot Grouper Sandwiches, authentic Argentinian Empanadas, fresh ground coffee and local fresh grown fruits and vegetables.

We bought some lovely fresh vegetables at Kinsey's Produce, a family business, owned and operated by Philip, Debbie, and Travis Kinsey, who, on any given Saturday at the Farmers Market, serve fresh cored pineapple and cold coconut drinks, along with an enormous variety of local and seasonal fruits and veggies. They also prepare gorgeous mixed vegetable kabobs, perfect for grilling outdoors with fresh Florida seafood.
