Pienllas County Farmers MarketsSpring is a great time of year to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family. Being outside encourages active lifestyles by decreasing time spent in front of a television or computer screen.

It’s also a great time to visit local farmers markets and produce stands for a bounty of fresh local foods. The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County (DOH-Pinellas), in collaboration with the Healthy Pinellas Consortium, offers a free guide to help you find your closest fresh-food location.

The 2016 Pinellas County Guide to Farmers Markets and Produce Stands is a resource guide that lists markets by location and the day of the week it’s open. Markets offer fresh produce, crafts and more. The aim of the guide is to increase the access of healthy, local food to everyone in Pinellas County. The guide also includes information on which locations accept SNAP/EBT for purchases.
