Central Sarasota Farmers Market is Sarasotian’s chance to access locally produced goods and services. Those that provide these local goods and services also get the chance to showcase them to residents and put them out there for easier access. Farmers markets have only grown in popularity and there is an appreciation for accessing goods from local farms.

The Central Sarasota Farmers Market has only been around since 2014 but has worked to get local and regional vendors to bring their prepared foods, baked goods, fruits, meats and vegetables to the market and has also been successful with bringing in local artisans, artists, service providers, live entertainment and non-profits. Here is a look at what you can experience at the farmers market and where to find it.

Visiting the Market

It takes place on Saturdays from 8am-1pm every week all year round. It’s located in the parking lot of the Sarasota County Technical Institute at the corner of Proctor and Beneva Roads. The address is 4748 South Beneva Road in Sarasota. It’s easily accessible to vendors and visitors with easy access off Proctor and Beneva.

It’s free to attend and easy to meander through for those wheelchair bound, using walkers or canes because it’s on a flat, paved surface. There are also climate-controlled bathrooms for the public to use. The market is open rain or shine every Saturday.


You’ll get a chance to access several vendors from around the area. A few popular vendors include:

  • Central Market General Store
  • Brown’s Grove
  • Sun Crazy Gardens
  • Haraki-Gordon Green Tea
  • Cheesecake Me Desserts
  • Baja Boys Baja Mexican Grill

Sun Crazy Garden is the vendor to talk to for your herbs, flowering plants and succulents.
