Punta Gorda Farmers Market
Punta Gorda has long been a central location for events, food and entertainment in Charlotte County. During the months from May through April, every Saturday morning the Punta Gorda Farmers’ Market is open for business with fresh fruits and vegetables; a flavorful and colorful variety of produce and freshly baked breads and pastries, flowers, gourmet appetizers and much, much more! Just the thought makes many mouths water for the fullness found therein. Punta Gorda Farmers Market has been named the 15th best small market in the U.S. and recently won a contest becoming #1 in the State of Florida. This should come as no surprise as all of the venders and patrons are so friendly that they add to the enjoyable shopping experience. You cannot help but say, “good morning” to Jerry Presseller, who is the Market Manager for the Farmers Market. Take a relaxing seat in the garden and watch one of the local artists like Charlies Peck and Mary Taglieri painting. Enjoy the music and humor from Lou Canoe’s Blues. Take a walk and look at Hernandez Farm Produce or the many other vendors covering products from Homemade Pasta, Jewelry, fruit trees, Asian Produce, French artisans, Beef Country steaks, sausage, clothes, Cupcakes, Imported Cheese and authentic French baguette. Think you're done? Check out the beautiful home decor for your residence from such vendors like Mickey and Mike of M& M Creations; how about some jewelry and summer clothing? With so much to see and sample, this Farmers’ Market is sure to give you all the tastes and freshness for your kitchen, as well as lend you a delightful shopping experience that is unique.
