Go if you like organic and fresh veggies. Early is best for the largest assortment; later is better if you don't care what's left. There's also crafts and food to purchase. It's crowded during high season, but you're sure to see at least one person...More

Not so big but lots of good stuff to see and buy. Located at the downtown area. Friendly vendors and lots of organic merchandise and locally grown food. Nice way to spend your saturday mornings in the city.

Fun place to stroll, shop, and get lunch and the freshest produce. It’s crowded and alive with people and vendors. Seems like most of Sarasota is here, come early, it runs until about 1:00 pm.

Limited seating is available. And I found that people are most gracious about sharing open seats at their table. (Most welcome to a New Yorker who is not used to such friendliness.)
