Farmer’s markets in general offer foods and other retail items direct to consumers, providing cost savings to both parties. Sizes of these markets vary and they usually reflect the local culture and economy of the area. In the Daytona Beach area, we are lucky to have several of these markets to choose from where locals can enjoy fresh produce and organic items that may not be available in large retail stores. Here are a few options in our hometown that you might enjoy.

Located just across the river from the many excellent shops and restaurants that line historic Beach Street, this popular market is held every Saturday from 7am to 1pm. Here you will find fresh produce, organic options, baked goods, seafood and much more. There is even live music at this family-friendly market.

On Thursdays, Port Orange residents will now have the opportunity to peruse local vendors offering fresh produce, local raw honey, gluten free products, various crafts and much more.
