Vegetables at the St. Petersburg Farmers Market
Love, love, love the farmer’s market in downtown St. Petersburg. It is so amazing and there is something new around every corner. This is the place to go for brunch or lunch on Saturday’s.
230 1st St. S.E. (at 1st Av. S. & 1st St.)

I’d go here for the Empanada’s alone, they are so good. So far I have tried the Spinach and Feta and the Beef Empanadas. They are baked on location and have quite a few varieties available to purchase.
There are breads, cheeses, seafood and pasta too. There are usually about 130 vendors at the market on any given Saturday. The market runs until May 30 and will reopen in early October. Hours are from 9 – 2 PM. This market is usually attended by 10,000 people every Saturday. There is live music and the second Saturday of the month is Story telling day out on the lawn where families come to gather.
Here is just a sampling of the Pappadelle’s pasta booth where all of the pastas are homemade. All of their pastas are organic and made of only the finest ingredients. I have a couple of bags sitting in my kitchen right now to try including a Southwest Orzo and a Fruit Pasta with Lemon, Lime, Raspberry, and Tangerine/Orange flavored Gemelli. Browse Pappadelle’s website to see all of the varieties of pasta they sell.
Moving on is a booth that I am going to try this weekend. Fabulous noodle bowls! They looked amazing last time I was there.
The fresh vegetables are amazing! I know I have used that word a lot in this post but I can’t help it, this is one of the best farmer’s markets I have ever been to. Going to the farmer’s market is always a good memory for me. My grandmother used to go the farmer’s market on Saturday mornings to sell her fresh eggs. If I was lucky I got to go with her. It is a happy memory for me.
