Farmers Market

Lindsay Myers

On a warm autumn morning in downtown Pensacola, hundreds of people are walking up and down Palafox Street, shopping at one of the city’s signature weekly events: The Palafox Market. The String Farm Band is one of many musical acts that line the street creating a soundtrack to the market with its fresh produce and handmade artwork for sale. The market is now eight years old and has tripled in size since its beginning.

Santa Rosa Farmer's Market Association

Coming up Saturday the Pace area will be home to a new farmer's market. Last fall farmers approached Santa Rosa County Extension's commercial horticulture agent, Blake Baxton, to talk about the possibility of starting a farmer's market in Santa Rosa County.

Thomas Van Horn of East Hill Honey Company and Mike Carro, one of the co-owners of Al Fresco Dining on Palafox and Main St have teamed up to bring the idea of a midweek farmers to fruition.
