Temporary location change of portion of the Market due to ongoing construction safety concerns and future bricking of Lemon Ave The Sarasota Farmers Market has shifted one street over in response to safety concerns from ongoing construction activity of The Mark during market hours, and the bricking of Lemon Avenue in early 2019. Our new footprint will extend South to Main Street on Lemon Avenue, with a new addition of First Street from Lemon Avenue to Orange Avenue. The shift was initiated by our Board of Directors, with the support of the City of Sarasota. Throughout this shift, the Sarasota Farmers Market will be open for it’s regular hours, 7am – 1pm, rain or shine. The Market will be providing a shaded seating area, free kids activities, and live music on the new Market Stage. It will also be rolling out several special events to engage the community and spread the word about the shift. We plan to return to our original location when construction and re-bricking is complete, and it is determined to be safe for customers to return. There’s never been a time when our vendors and downtown merchants need the support of our customers and community more. Special thanks to the City of Sarasota for supporting the Market in our needs during this shift!
