If you happen to be on Sanibel Island on Sunday morning, be sure and make a stop at the Farmer's Market near the Library. Open Sundays 8am - 1pm, but get there early to avoid items being sold out. Plenty of parking in the Arts Center, and just follow the signs. Very nice Farmer's Market with a wide variety of... More

What a fun place to be on a sunny day. I think almost everyone on the island was here the day we went, but we could still get close enough to the vendors that we could purchase anything we wanted.

We stopped by about noon on Sunday and they close at 1pm. There were several places that were sold out of their items and we saw people with a lot of bags so people were buying at this market. There was a good variety of foods and the folks were very friendly and offered many samples. There was a rude... More

Thank you for your review and suggestions. Most of the vendors do offer samples but some chose not to. The French Baker you are referring too usually always has samples of his white chocolate brioche. I apologize that he was rude, it truly surprises me. I have never seen him unpleasant. I will be sure to bring this to his... More

WOW! Thank you for the nice review! We are so proud of the farmers market, can't believe this is our 9th season. The market would not be what it is today without the support of the locals, so thank you! Don't ever hesitate to stop at the market booth with any suggestions, we love the feedback. :) More

The best drink ever! My children remind me when we pack our suitcases for Florida ," we're going for the watermelon tea right mom? " It's the best Farmers Market with delicious food & fun vendors. Bring your appetite, lots of home made goodies. Get there before 11. Vendors sell out. Worth the trip ...

When visiting Sanibel Island in season, this is a must do. Exotic fruit, good coffee, waffles (on a stick!), smoothies, local honey, air plants, etc.

Every year when we come to Sanibel we have to visit the farmer's market. Lots of great foods and interesting vendors. I think there used to be more crafters but that might just be perception. Wonderful fresh produce and baked goods. Lots of healthy options in a charming environment. Love it!

Thanks for returning each year to the farmers market and writing a review. The Sanibel farmers market is a food and plant focused market, no crafts have ever been allowed, per City guidelines. We do allow hand-made soaps and candles that are made with agriculture products and sold by the producer. Hope you return soon. :) More
