Please me with this. I tried to look for Seminole FM last weekend (Sunday), found nothing...I know there is something in St Petersburg. Any good farmer markets in Tampa area? Also, do they all stop in the summer months here? Thanks

try googling
I came up with this, am sure you can find a list for pinellas county markets
St Pete Saturday market downtown is brilliant.
Most are smaller in summer, too hot for a lot of stuff but produce is always there
is the farmers market at wagon wheel still running folks? Park Blvd between Seminole and Starkey
Tampa Bay Markets

I might be missing something, but I don't understand fresh/ farmer markets because most of them I've been within last few years were re-selling fruits and veggies you can buy at night market (the one restaurants use) for cheap. It's really cheap their, but they sell everything in large quantities (like box of bananas) or box of tomatoes. If you know someone you can split your purchases, you can save a lot. Prices for fresh fruits and veggies in Wiregrass fresh market (Wesley chapel mall) were higher than any local grocery store offers, and for very limited selection of organic - prices were like twice expensive compare to Publix green wise. I know the idea is to buy fresh from locals, but it's only for very limited things that are in season.

There are product markets on Hillsborough Ave, near the Funland drive in theatre. Also, a large indoor market called "sawa" I think, nearby. Sat and sun they is a market more like a street market. One in Ybor city. Just google farmers and street markets in Tampa and it should come up. Oh, there is a large grove and veg market on Bearrs ave, just east of Carollwood. Sorry I don't have better addresses, but honestly I found lots by searching on line.

Good luck.

My wife and I try to get to a farmers market in Pinellas county. We both enjoy the smaller city's with the markets. A few years ago we went to a huge market in St. Pete near the downtown area. Did not feel comfortable. Way to many people.

We both recomend smaller markets in Pinellas.

Gulf Port on Tuesdays
Safety Harbor on Thursdays
Dunedin on Fridays and Saturdays

There may be more markets with the smaller small feel every year. We both get back home in Michigan in May.

St P market is great. Why only on Saturdays and it seems to close early.... ? Why not Sunday?

The large indoor market on H'Boro is Sanwa.

There is also the Seminole Heights Sunday Morning Market at Hillsborough High School, never been but it probably has "artisanal" type offerings in addition to produce.

There is a farmers market on Bearrs called Bearrs Groves, which I like to stop in fairly often - they have good deals on produce although the selection at Sanwa is awesome year round. I like to visit Sanwa in the summer when other markets are either not open, or unpleasant due to the heat. Sanwa is like a huge walk in cooler.

Oh, thanks for the name correction ! I only like some of Sanwa. The frozen meat and seafood is questionable to me cause much is sourced from China, Asia, etc The meat is not the best grade either, the employee called it "roll off" quality (I think that describes the meat that is Not seperated into better grades in the meat butchering place) and didn't say it was select, choice, etc, which is a standard meat grading name. I tried a ny strip and it was tough, and, although thick looking, it actually had a complete "halving" of the strip when I unpackaged it. Two thinner pieces, not what I though from packaging.

The produce might be great, only tried once. I did like that they had supplies for foods and cooking. I bought some foam food storage boxes, type like used in take out and had three compartments. I use it to put meals in and freeze. And your right on the "cooler" effect, that helps !


I want to check out Plant city more, they are a farmers community. I do like the Bearrs Groves. Even they had a hard time getting the honey murcot tangerines (love them in Feb/Mar) this year due to lower crop. They have lost some of the groves they leased. Love them and the people are great. Good luck and thanks for this thread, it's helpful for a lot of people !
