Our friends at Edible Sarasota do an excellent job keeping tabs on the Suncoast food and dining scene, and that includes compiling the following list of local farmers’ markets. Though there are less options for local residents during the off-season summer months, there are still plenty of merchants supplying fresh fruits and veggies to area foodies.
