As you know from my previous post, Hitty Moves to a Condominium, I am exploring my new neighborhood. Recently, I checked out the Farmer's Market in the River District of downtown Fort Myers.
The River District Farmers’ Market is open every Thursday between 7 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Centennial Park parking lot, under the U.S. 41 Caloosahatchee Bridge at the corner of Heitman and West First streets, just West of the U.S. Post Office.

This market has been a favorite of locals and tourists since 1994 and offers local produce, seafood, baked goods, honey, nuts, cheese, flowers, plants and much more. Unlike other local farmer's market which are seasonal, the River District Market is open all year long.

The food trucks are a more recent addition to the market.
An added attraction is the beautiful River District of Fort Myers with it’s brick streets, historic buildings, decorative metal sculptures, and of course, palm trees. Fort Myers is called The City of Palms
