Did You Know…. Every agriculture vendor at Central Sarasota Farmers Market (fruits, vegetables, herbs, plants, etc) are growers or farmers, not just resellers?

That’s right, all Agriculture businesses at CSFM grow much of their own product.  Know Your Farmer!


Get the story in pictures! Every week we take shots of people, produce, pets, and products. Watch as our little market grows up.
