What’s On Suncoast? 1.8 – 1.15

The Suncoast Post asks, “What’s On, Suncoast?” Here are a few ideas for things to do around the area this week of January 8 – January 15, 2021!

Venice Farmers Market

Venice Farmers Market
City Hall: 401 W. Venice Avenue, Venice Fl 35285

Just because it’s a short time into January and winter is here in Florida doesn’t mean that fresh produce, baked goods, and artisan cheeses aren’t available. This is the beauty of the Suncoast of Florida, after all, and the Venice Farmers Market for locally sourced produce and other goods is open every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. until March. Take a stroll over in the gorgeous temperatures this time of year to scope out all vendors that are there to welcome you, educate you on their products, and send you on your wash with tasty treats and amazing treasures.

Wild Child

Looking for a unique comfort food twist and drinks with friends this week? Wild Child Restaurant & Cocktail Bar could fit the bill. With patio seating, vegetarian and fresh twists on American, Spanish, Asian, and Korean traditional favorites from burgers to Pan Roasted Sea Scallops there is something for everyone. With an eclectic and laid back atmosphere, staff adhering to COVID rules and cocktails that visitors describe as “the bomb,” if you haven’t stopped into this restaurant yet – why not? With a slogan like “Slow Down and Coast,” you knew where your next lazy weekend visit or date night should be.

Gator Mike’s Family Fun Park

Make online reservations, get your tickets, and plan your visit today, just a short ride from all the Suncoast communities we love. With food, games, and sites for kids of all ages, this is a must add to your wintertime fun list here in Florida.

Big Cat Habitat

Still trying to find your spirit animal, the Big Cat Habitat is what’s on here on the Suncoast that might be able to help. Fox Yoga, Ligers, Tigers, and so many other exotic beautiful creatures right here on the Suncoast to enjoy. And yes, you heard us right – they have Fox Yoga. If you think the pandemic has had you seeing the same faces and spaces for far too long, enjoy a day out at a nonprofit in Sarasota dedicated to providing safe, permanent homes for over 150 wild animals. It will definitely spice up those doldrums in no time.

U-Pick Strawberries @ Hunsader Farms
