Lake DeSoto Farmers Market
THE LAKE DESOTO FARMERS MARKET
The relocation of the Lake DeSoto Farmers Market while construction took place on Darby
Pavilion in Wilson Park since last September to the parking lot at the corner of Marion Avenue and
Highway 90 (Duval Street) across from the Courthouse Annex, has offered the market vendors frontage
along Highway 90 and a heightened visibility to motorist traveling on Highway 90 (Duval Street). It was
the hope that the community would continue to support the market and they have. The vendors have
chosen to continue to operate the market every Saturday from this strategic location and invite the
community to come out weekly to check out the new vendors and all their summer goodies.
What is on the Menu this week?
As you consider your shopping list do you think about where your food comes from? Is your food more
traveled than you are? Consider shopping at the farmers market for your perishables this week. You
will find vegetables, dairy products (cheese, milk and yogurt), eggs and baked goods. The foods found
at the Market are LOCAL! Small farmers/gardeners are growing these vegetables in their own
"backyards". In most cases, it is grown as nature intended, with no pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
The Lake DeSoto Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 9am to 1pm in the parking lot at the
corner of Marion Avenue and Duval Street across from the Courthouse Annex located. The Lake DeSoto
Farmers Market is a project of the Lake City Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA). For more
