We had the opportunity to visit the Bradenton Farmers Market yesterday. We have been there many times before and always amazed how much fun we have.
Every Saturday from 9am-2pm during the season (1st weekend in October to the last week in May), Old Main Street in Bradenton is a great place to meet your friends, purchase fresh produce, drinks, salads and other delights along with great music, local art and demonstrations by local chefs. We got a chance to talk with our friends at Olive Branch and More. We bought some locally baked bread and took home some Olive Oil!
Old Main Street is fabulous with great restaurants, retail stores, cafes and its close to the Bradenton Riverwalk. There are over thirty-five vendors that come to the market just about every week with their locally-grown fruits, vegetables, organic products, fresh seafood, along with displays from local artists.

Come out next Saturday to the Bradenton Farmers’ Market. Bring your appetite and get ready for a wonderful experience.
