Voted the best small market in Florida and 15th in the USA, they have a large number of vendors offering fruits and vegetables, pickles, jams and jellies, orange juice, German bakery, fresh homemade pasta, kitchenware, cupcakes, beef and fresh seafood, fresh citrus, jewelry, candles and soaps, dip mixes, Florida arts and crafts, cheese, baguettes and olives, homemade pies, orchids, organic produce, personalized pens, kettle corn, coffee beans and drinks, native and exotic plants, natural facial products and all natural smoothies. Live entertainment. The Market now accepts EBT/SNAP cards and as an added bonus is giving 2$ for 1$ when you buy Florida grown produce, citrus or honey. WHY?? Because by doing this people eat more healthy foods and along with that help our local farmers sell more so they can produce more. It’s a win win so c’mon down!!
