Naples’ Very Own, Downtown Farmer’s Market…Time For a Visit!

Ok, fierce honesty: I have lived in the Naples area for 33 years (this August), but I’ve never been to the Third Street South Farmer’s Market. I can’t believe I’m admitting that. The market has been in town for more than 20 years. I guess it’s because my Saturday mornings have always been occupied with other activities, and visiting the market just wasn’t a priority.

When I happened to walk by it last summer, I promised myself I would definitely pay it a visit some time in the future. Months passed and, finally, a few Saturdays back, I stopped by before meeting my friends Nell and Suzanne for lunch at Jane’s Garden Cafe.

I arrived 45 minutes before the market was scheduled to end, hoping that would make it easier to find parking. I did find parking–not very close–but was shocked at how long it took me. The market is very popular in season, so be forewarned!

One reason I’ve never felt a need to visit the market is because of having both a Whole Foods and several organic food markets easily accessible all the time. Among them is Food and Thought Organic General Store. Everything is organic, and they also have a large space devoted to clothing.

The Third Street South Farmer’s Market

That being said, the Third Street Market is definitely worth a visit, because it’s much more than just a place to shop. It’s a unique taste of true Naples that’s fun for the whole family. Parking during the summer is a breeze, by the way.

Food and Thought had a large booth at the market, and for those interested there also was a local paleo-friendly gluten-free bakery, doggie treat bakery, orchid purveyor, and much more. Several are featured in my screenshots (and video) below.

Jane’s Cafe and What Suzanne and I Wore

After lunch at Jane’s–which is hugely popular every day, year-round, because of their all-day breakfast, delicious salads and more–Suzanne and I took turns filming each other’s outfit with my iPhone. You can see those screenshots and the video below, too.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.

I hope you have a great week!

P.S. I heard a wonderful tune at the Market. It was called “Flamaluna”, and it was played by a group called  Terra Guitarra. You can see them and hear the song on my video.

    Market is wonderful,fl looks or your city looks really luxury isn’t it?And fl peoples seem so friendly.You are very lucky,You live in a clean and beautiful city.It really lives there.But crowded.
    The weather looks very hot,I guessed there is summer over there.Your clothes are very comfortable,your hat is my best item.You are always very elegant.
    Happy Days~

    • Hi, Rose! Yes, the market was crowded, because this was what we call “high season”, which is the popular time for travelers to come visit the city. Now it’s starting to quiet down, as we’re moving to the out of season time of year. Very peaceful then! Thank you for watching my video! Cheers ~ Janis

  2. Hey ladies…you all look smashing in our already “summer” Fl heat! We’ve had projects in Naples for years and love the market. Downtown is still has charm in the Naples explosion of growth. We are in Venice, have a pretty good market here and a good one in Sarasota. And yes, we can all park in the summer months!- Laurel Bledsoe

    • Hi, Laurel! Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog post and comment! I drove up to Venice many, many years ago (1984) to interview someone for a profile in “Gulfshore Life” magazine. It was gorgeous, from what I remember. You are blessed to live there. Speaking of summer, it’s also nice to be able to easily get into restaurants! Love that 🙂 Cheers ~ Janis
