The St. Augustine Farmer’s Market is especially popular in the fall.

Every Wednesday from 8:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. there is a farmer’s market at the St. Augustine Beach Pier Park offering local produce from around Florida. This market provides organically grown vegetables, fruits, and herbs. The market is located at 350 A1A Beach Blvd, St. Augustine, FL 32080.

If you can’t make it to the Wednesday market there is another farmer’s market on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. Here you can also find locally grown vegetables, fruits, herbs and more. The harvest season will produce a large variety of local foods so come out and see for yourself. The Amphitheatre is located at 1340 A1A South St. Augustine, FL 32080.

Visitors will find locally grown goods at the farmers market every week.

The fresh tomatoes at the farmer’s market are always gorgeous.
