The Englewood Farmers Market is set to launch their new season on Thursday, October 5th! First off, we want to welcome back our all star line-up of the best food and agriculture vendors in the region. We’re also going to have some fantastic new talent joining the market this season! In addition to local pasture raised chickens, ducks and turkeys plus farm fresh eggs from Sarasota’s Grove Ladder Farm, there will be two new gourmet bakers with French tarts and American pies, Empanadas from Argentina, handmade popsicles, ready to take home gourmet meals, and new fusion drink beverages.  In addition, you’ll see live cooking demos every week with Master Chef Chasky. Chef Chasky will be creating and featuring recipes made with fresh ingredients purchased that morning from the market vendors.

As part of our mission to support local farmers and an initiative with our SNAP and Fresh Access Bucks double dollars program, we’re thrilled to have eleven local grower’s this season” stated market manager Lee Perron.

As a non-profit farmers market that donates its proceeds back to the local community, the Englewood Farmers Market donated over $21,000 last season to St. David’s and Helping Hand food banks, the Englewood Care Clinic, the Englewood Sports Complex, New Paradigm and Englewood Elementary School.

The Englewood Farmers Market is open every Thursday from 9 AM – 2 PM, October through May in the 300 Block of Historic W. Dearborn Street.

Most of us would spend a lot more time kayaking if our boats were waiting for us at the boat launch.  Well, the Friends of Lemon Bay Park are working on it.  With the support of the Englewood Farmers Market and parent organization Friends of Sarasota County Parks, the volunteer group is $1,000 closer to building a public kayak storage system at Lemon Bay Park, providing a secure waterfront storage location for kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddle boards.  The goal is to make accessing and enjoying a day on the water as easy and efficient as possible.  The storage bays would be available to the public to rent for a small fee that would be reinvested into park programs and projects.  The Friends of Lemon Bay Park have been actively fundraising to provide this amenity at the park.  If you would like to make a donation or contribute to the project, please call Lemon Bay Park at (941) 474-3065.
