Fort Pierce Farmers Market

One of my favorite things to do when I go to Florida, is going to the Fort Pierce Farmers Market at the marina. They have a wonderful variety of artisans, food vendors and produce. The market is held every Saturday morning, rain or shine.

My last day in Florida, this trip, was a Saturday. My cousin Melanie and her husband, Kurt; my Aunt Cheryl and I set out for the market early.

Check out these beautifully fresh fruits and vegetables.

We purchased a lot of vegetables, breads,
and dip mixes to make for dinner. YUM!

Let's look at some of the handmade wares being offered.

I bought a small purse to use while flying or going to auctions.

Hoola Hoop anyone?

Don't you love all the color?!

There is also a large tent where local authors sell autographed copies of their books. Cheryl, Melanie, and Kurt introduced me to an author they'd spoken to before.

Bob Morrissey is a retired police officer from Toledo, Ohio. He writes humorous books telling actual funny police stories from his years on the police force. As you know, my nephew is a police lieutenant so I asked Bob to sign a copy of 2nd Humorous Beat for him.

Bob has written several other books with a police theme, including A Cop's Gotta Laugh (fiction) and Humorous Beat. Korean Conflict War: Don't Take My Name, and Vagabonds are other non-police books by Bob. His books are available on Amazon and on shelves in your local bookstore.

I was getting hungry so I set out for something to eat. I found a vendor making crepes and boy did he make it look easy.

I'd like some strawberries on mine...

...and Nutella, please.

It was delicious!

A Four Man Trio (that's their name)
provided musical entertainment,
but the hit of the market was this little guy.

He was adorable, but he was
too busy to pose for a picture.

  9. Very neat! I think there is something similar to this in Charleston every Saturday too, but I haven't been. My sister in law used to live there and has told me about it. Looks like an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon! I wish we had one near us.
