Stock up on the freshest fruits and vegetable Florida has to offer.

Whether you’re traveling through northern Florida or visiting the warm, sunny south, you can bet on a great farmers’ market nearby. Typically, we look forward to these markets on a weekend, but some offer weekday shopping too. While some markets are more focused on traditional fruits and vegetables, others go beyond farm-grown eats, offering up everything from to-go meals from local neighborhood restaurants to vendors selling handmade goods—at the heart of it all, these markets proudly represent Florida’s natural bounty and guarantee the highest-quality locally grown food from farms across the Sunshine State.
