(FORT MYERS BEACH, FL), (October 12, 2015) The Santini Sunrise Farmers Market is set to open its 2015 season on Tuesday, November 4, 2015. Located in Santini Marina Plaza, this family friendly market showcases farm fresh produce, delicious prepared foods, live entertainment, and local information about Fort Myers Beach. It operates every Tuesday from 9am until 1pm. The market is a rain or shine event that continues until Easter.
There has been a lot of positive buzz about the new and improved market. Event Coordinator, Bonnie Roberts, says, “An exciting change for the Santini Sunrise Farmer’s Market this year is we’ve gone “all fresh”, homegrown, and handmade. Our jewelry makers will be making and customizing their pieces on site, Honey from the Hood will be doing hourly demos on harvesting honey, Donna Elias, watercolor artist and Mara Balodis canvas artist will be painting on site, Connie Eugenio will be engraving rings and bracelets ‘to go’. You will see taffy being made by Bradley Taffy, Gemini Jelly brings her own homemade jellies, and Peaches Provisions sells homemade Pickles and Olives. Other items for sale will include Moringa Tree Oils, fresh seasonings, herbal balms, local handmade baskets, pottery, beach photography, carved wood art, hemp bamboo clothing, homemade candles, air plants, natural pet treats, handmade soaps, and so much more.”
“We are excited to begin our season at the Santini Sunrise Farmers Market,” says Al Durrett, Manager of Santini Marina Plaza. “We usually have a nice selection of vendors at the market and customers can expect to find farm fresh produce, baked goods, artwork, honey, homemade jewelry and other original creations.”
