Eco-Conscience Shoping at the River District Farmers Market
When you shop at large chain stores the vast majority of your money leaves Fort Myers. That’s why it’s so much better to shop local. When you do your cash stays in our local economy longer. And that’s one of the many reasons to check out the River District Farmers Market.
Not only will your money go directly into the hands of a Fort Worth farmer, but it’s also much better for the environment. Just think of all the fuel it saves when your food isn’t transported from another state or country. And of course your food will be fresher and therefore taste better.
The River District Farmers Market offers local produce, seafood, baked goods, honey, nuts, cheese, flowers and plants, and much more. The market is open every Thursday from 7am until 1pm. It is held in the Centennial Park parking lot, located under the U.S. 41 Caloosahatchee Bridge. Please check out the River District Farmers Market for more information.
