An Interesting Visit at Golden Gate Community Farmers Market

On Saturdays and Sundays during peak season, this farmers market in Naples, Florida runs from 9 am to 2 pm, and starting in June, it runs from 8 am to 1 pm. The market had a unique selection of vendors, with only three selling produce and the majority selling food, clothes, medicines, and lotions.

The community was primarily Mexican and Venezuelan, and most of the vendors spoke Spanish among each other. Although I usually try to support the locals, the choices were limited. I asked a vendor about the price of a basket of lychee, and he initially told me it was $5. However, when I returned to purchase it, he said it was actually $10, so I decided not to buy it. My husband bought some Venezuelan empanadas for $10 for a set of three, which were freshly made on-site with pork, chicken, and beef fillings. Although I didn’t purchase anything, I still enjoyed visiting and learning about what the market had to offer.
