If you like farm fresh produce, the Sanford Farmer’s Market is a must see. Here you will find everything from organically grown carrots and goats milk dairy products to local raw honey. (Locally made honey is a natural treatment for environmental allergies.) There are native plants and flowers sold by gardeners who give lots of great advice on how to keep your garden green. You will also find live music and lots of arts and crafts. Vendors offer a wide variety of products including jewelry made from recycled items like game tiles and bottle caps and hand-made clothes and purses. The market is held in historic downtown Sanford Satuday mornings from 9am-2pm and Wednesday evenings from 6pm-9pm. Hope to see you there!

I’ve been visiting the Sanford Farmers’ Market at least once a month for quite some time. It’s small, but I really love several of the vendors. I figured I’d mention some of my favorites in case any of you live in the area and haven’t checked it out yet.
Frederickson Apiaries of Geneva– Fantastic LOCAL Raw Honey
Handmade Soaps from the Young Family–My favorite is the “Spicy Sunrise” because of its fantastic smell and natural ingredients.
Gramma Hart’s Heavenly Homemades–She sells homemade jams and soaps. She picked the fruit for her jams herself here in the area. Unfortunately, they are not organic, but at least they’re made with local ingredients. I haven’t gotten a chance to try her soaps yet.
Beeswax Balm Company–I reviewed them a few months ago on the Green Guide. I enjoy the banana/coconut variety.
There’s a produce stand, but the fruits and veggies are not currently local or organic. If you’re not worried about those two things, the prices are good. I did find eggs and butter that are local. Visit the Sanford Farmer’s Market My Space page to view the list of vendors and current information.
I don’t believe our Sanford Farmers’ Market is as comprehensive as others in the Orlanda area, but it’s growing! I wanted to get the word out so others will take the time to check it out. If you decide to visit, you might want to try the last Saturday of the month since local art vendors will be there as well.
