The much anticipated Siesta Key Farmers Market has officially opened its doors. This past Sunday the Davidsons Plaza parking lot in Siesta Village was alive with the sounds, sights and smells of what will hopefully be the start of a new tradition. It was a great opening day.
The market features a wide variety of vendors. There is a nice assortment of local Siesta Key restaurants including The Village Café, Broken Egg, Sun Garden Café and The Café Patisserie all selling some delicious prepared food. There are organic fruit and vegetable vendors and a few selling non-food related items like candles and soaps. You can get a mini massage and listen to some music too.
If you want to take home some fresh local seafood, the folks at Walts Fish Market are there to help. Looking for authentic Wisconsin cheese curds, and who isnt? Greenleaf Wisconsin Cheese is offering a wide variety available to take home for some Sunday snacking.
There were a few little bumps in the road, but all in all a fantastic first day. If you didnt have the chance to make it out to Siesta Key this Sunday, dont worry. The market is open every Sunday rain or shine from 7am to noon. Put it on your To Do list for next weekend, youll be happy you did.
