FORT MYERS, Fla. (Dec. 6, 2013) – The weekly farmer’s market at JetBlue Park at Fenway South, located at 11500 Fenway South Drive in Fort Myers, is set to return for a four-month run in January 2014.
Beginning Jan. 6, Fenway South Drive, in front of JetBlue Park, will host the Fenway South Farmer’s Market every Monday afternoon from 2 to 6. The market will include local produce, cheeses, fresh pastas, seafood, baked breads, meats, herbs, organic vegetables, ready-to-eat meals, flowers, crafts, soaps, candles, live music and more.
“Our vendors are very excited to be returning to JetBlue Park to promote their locally produced products and wares to neighboring communities as well as to Boston Red Sox fans,” said Betsy Ventura, who, along with Jean Baer, owns Local Roots, LLC and will run the market at JetBlue Park each Monday. “Farmer’s markets have been growing in popularity, and this is the perfect time of year to shop local in the open air and beautiful Florida sunshine.”
Ventura and Baer also operate the Lakes Park and Sanibel farmer’s markets.
“We are very excited that Lee County’s newest open-air market is returning to JetBlue Park,” said Katie Haas, senior director of Florida business operations for the Boston Red Sox. “This market is a great way to kick-off the Spring Training season and just another one of the unique ways Fenway South is being utilized for the Southwest Florida community.”
