FORT MYERS, Fla. (March 28, 2014) – Fenway South Farmer’s Market will continue through April every Monday with its all-new hours, noon to 4 p.m., due to customer demand.

“Our patrons asked us to open earlier so they could not only shop all the great vendors but also enjoy lunch while onsite or grab a ready-made meal for dinner,” said Betsy Ventura, who, along with Jean Baer, owns Local Roots, LLC and oversees the market every Monday. “This is a great lunch option for businesses, retired neighbors or tourists because there is such a variety from pulled-pork sandwiches, BBQ ribs, pasta, and subs to pizza, lobster rolls, chowder and more.”

Baer added that there is outdoor seating available.

Situated in front of JetBlue Park, located at 11500 Fenway South Drive in Fort Myers, the Fenway South Farmer’s Market includes local produce, cheeses, fresh pastas, guacamole, hummus, local seafood, baked breads, meats, herbs, organic vegetables, ready-to-eat meals, flowers, crafts, soaps, candles, live music and more. Parking during market hours is free.

“The return of the farmer’s market this season has had a great response, especially with the new hours,” said Katie Haas, senior director of Florida business operations for the Boston Red Sox. “Not only can you shop and enjoy a great meal, but you can also stock up on all your favorite Red Sox merchandise at our Team Store as it’s open during the market hours.”

The final day of the Fenway South Farmer’s Market is Monday, April 28.
