Punta Gorda Farm­ers Mar­ket

Focus of SWFL - - Home & More - By Dan Myricks

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.
