Downtown Fort Walton Beach Farmers Market

  • When: The second and fourth Saturdays of every month
  • Where: The Fort Walton Beach Landing
  • What to Expect: The Downtown Fort Walton Beach Farmers Market has continuously improved over the last few years. In fact, this year, they even added live music to each market. Personally, when I go to a farmer’s market, the one thing I’m most excited to look for is locally grown produce. I was happy to find that there were two booths selling produce. There were several other interesting vendors, including ones that sold tamales, vegan/gluten free baked goods, and even locally made candles!

  • When: Saturdays from 9AM-2PM
  • Where: Downtown Pensacola on North Palafox Street
  • What to Expect: The Palafox Market is by far one of the biggest farmers markets in the area. It’s a lovely market to stroll on a Saturday morning as it features goods such as local produce, cold brew coffee, fresh-baked bread and pastries. On top of that, there are many vendors selling a wide variety of handmade goods, including mugs, paintings, and even dog bandanas! I highly recommend visiting Palafox Market at least once.

Seaside Farmers Market

Seaside is also a beautiful place to walk around, so on top of the amazing selection at the farmers market, you can expect a fantastic atmosphere for your Saturday morning!
