FORT MYERS, Fla. (Dec. 12, 2014) – 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 three-month run in January 2015.
Beginning Jan. 6 and running until March 9, Fenway South Drive, in front of JetBlue Park, will host the Fenway South Farmer’s Market every Monday afternoon from noon to 4. The market will include fresh local produce, cheeses, fresh pastas, seafood, baked breads, meats, herbs, organic vegetables, plants, ready-to-eat meals, flowers, crafts, soaps, candles, live music, weekly giveaways 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.
Ventura and Baer also operate the Bonita Springs, Coconut Point, Lakes Park and Sanibel farmer’s markets.
