Spending a Saturday Morning at the Farmer’s Market

Saturday Morning at the Market

Organic produce

A really cool place to find unique photo opportunities as well as organic produce is to spend a Saturday morning in Sarasota, Florida at the Sarasota Farmer’s Market.  Individual booths line the streets of Lemon Avenue and State Street filled with colorful locally grown produce, plants, trees and orchids, tantalizing foods for immediate consumption, intriguing books by local authors and delightful treasures from local artists and craftsmen.  Friendly dogs of all shapes and sizes stroll the streets with their masters. Market hours are from 7 a.m. until noon.

The mission of this not-for-profit organization is to educate consumers and share knowledge about the products and services of our local farmers, local businesses and local creatives.  This venue encourages foot traffic to downtown Sarasota sustaining the economic viability of  the entire downtown.  It’s a really fun way to start your day as well as supporting the community.

  1. Wish you much happiness in Georgia, however, still wish you were back in Venice teaching us to paint your fabulous designs on furniture, trays or whatever! We sure enjoyed your classes and learned so much. Thanks again for opening new vistas in acrylics. You were the best!

    • Thanks so much Peggy! I do miss all of you and teaching the classes. We are now working on my studio that used to be a garden shed in the back yard. French doors and windows are in, HVAC is in and the ceiling and lights are up. Can’t wait to get back to the creative stuff!
