River District Farmers Market
Second Thursday of every month
Gulf Coast Humane Society will be undergoing another monthly undertaking by attending the River District Farmers Market, which is held every Thursday at First Street in Centennial Park parking lot under the U.S. 41 Caloosahatchee Bridge.
GCHS will be there every second Thursday of the month, starting Jan. 12.
The River District Farmers Market is the oldest Farmers Market in Lee County. Originally named the Downtown Farmers Market, The Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) organized the River District Farmers Market in 1994 to provide convenient and inexpensive market facilities for area vendors to sell their products directly to customers at reasonable prices.
It is a year-round market, while parking is available under the bridge and along the street in Downtown Fort Myers.
