Englewood Farmers Market On Thursday, November 17th. Pioneer Plaza

November 14, 2022

 

After last week’s hiatus due to Hurricane Nicole, the Englewood Farmers Market will be back this coming Thursday, November 17th, at Pioneer Plaza from 9 AM to 1 PM. Parts of Dearborn street are still under construction but there is plenty of parking on the street as well as the Green Street parking lot and along some of the side streets. We anticipate that almost all of the vendors will be back. 

The Sunset Rotary of Englewood is the operating arm of the market and they would appreciate if if you would come to the market closer to the 9 AM opening as they are still moving some of the vendors into the Plaza up until 9 AM. Have a great week and we look forward to seeing everyone this Thursday.

November 10th Farmers Market Cancelled Due To Weather

The November 10th Englewood Farmers Market has been cancelled due to the impending weather from tropical storm Nicole. The Englewood Sunrise Rotary, that runs the market, has made this decision as the vendors need time to prepare their products and we need to provide them with ample notification so they are not stuck with products they can’t sell this week.

We will provide further updates on the market and hopefully be back for our November 17th market. For continuous updates please visit our Englewood Farmers Market Facebook page.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Englewood Farmers Market Getting Back More Vendors

Englewood Farmers Market Logo

New concrete walkways make it easy to use strollers, walkers and wheelchairs.

The November 3rd Farmers Market saw an increase in the number of vendors returning this year. Our honey vendor is now scheduled to be back for the November 10th market. 

While the temperatures soared to over 90 degrees, a record for November 3rd, we had a very nice crowd of shoppers estimated at over 1,500 who were happy to be out and getting back to some degree of normalcy after the Hurricane. Parking is getting better as the FEMA crews are now collecting much of the tree debris from the streets surrounding Pioneer Plaza and the construction on Dearborn street is getting closer to being completed. 

For those of you who are not familiar with the Market, this Farmers Market is operated by the The Sunset Rotary of Englewood, a non-profit organization who gives back all of the money raised from revenue for vendor spots. Last year the Rotary gave back over $30,000.00 to local non-profits and people in need. This year is no different. Keeping our vendors happy and purchasing their produce and products helps everyone in the community.

The Market is open from 9 AM to 1 PM every Thursday of the month, except for days when it lands on a Holiday. It is located at the newly remodeled Pioneer Plaza on Dearborn street and with the new concrete walkways it is easily accessible to strollers, walkers and wheel chairs. Dogs are welcome as long as they are on a leash. 

Opening Day of Market A Success

October 27, 2022. 

The Englewood Farmers Market grand opening of 2022 in the newly redone Pioneer Park was a huge success. Following the massive amount of destruction and disruption to the Englewood community, it was nice to have something familiar and enjoyable to offer the community.

While the market was missing 15 vendors this week, mostly due to issues with hurricane Ian, the 46 vendors that set up at the market had a lot of customers. Best guess is that over 1,500 people came to the market today. That is a huge success for both the market and the community. It is anticipated that the balance of the vendors will return on November 3rd. 

The Englewood Farmers Market is operated by the Englewood Sunset Rotary Club and all of the money generated from the market vendor monthly space cost is given directly back to the community and many of the local non-profits. 

The market has some of the best food vendors in Southwest Florida and the facility makes this one of the best markets in all of Florida. Our operating hours are 9 AM to 1 PM every Thursday. Englewood Farmers Market Logo We are back!
