Naples Farmer's Market Third Street South Farmers Market

Naples Third Street South Farmer's Market is now open all year, every Saturday, 7:30 am till 11:30 am. I stock up on fresh produce, sauces, fresh fruits, and have a crepe or a petite pie before I leave. While many markets have closed by now, this is the biggest, and has a good assortment. Here's just some of the regulars, below.

Jacquie of Jacquie's Jammin' makes her own jellies and jams with Hugh. Try mango chutney, key lime, calomondine preserves, and passion fruit jam, for starters.
South Naples Citrus is here in season, Nov through May.
Bamboo Cafe's fresh crêpes are very popular. French visitors smile when they taste them in Naples, and pronounce them authentic!
Oldtimes Bakery and German Deli is a favorite.
The jackfruit weighs more than some customers! Jennie and David Burd have a wide variety of tropical fruits, vegetables, honey and marmalades.
French Bread Oven is my favorite artisanal baker in South Florida.
