“Wish we had bigger stomachs and were staying on the island longer,” says jenniferdN7543UE of Tripadvisor. “Next time we will plan a visit to the market at the beginning of our stay so we can purchase more. Great variety, a must do for kids and adults!”
A review by another Tripadvisor member, LindsayChildren3, states:
“I’ve never seen such gourmet food at this type of market in addition to all of the fresh fruits and vegetables. The baked goods are to die for plus there are some good art booths there. Definitely go!!!”
The market is open every Wednesday from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., through April 2019.
Veterans Community Park is located at 901 Park Avenue, Marco Island.
