Local Roots, LLC, is owned and operated by Lee County residents, Jean Baer and Betsy Ventura. Established in 2008, Local Roots, LLC is now the operator of 9 of the largest Farmers Markets in SWFL. It goes without saying that when you buy from local vendors at a Farmers Market that money stays in the community and gets reinvested! Much of the produce that is found in the big box grocery stores has been trucked in from as far as 1500 miles and may have been picked over a week ago.
Each of the Local Roots Farmers Markets offer a unique opportunity for vendors to sell seasonal local fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats, breads, nursery stock and other commodities. Some of the markets also create an opportunity for local crafters to showcase their products. Attendees have the opportunity to buy locally and to gather with friends and neighbors in a relaxed outdoor setting. Stop by one of the Local Roots Farmers Markets…….It’s the Best Thing Growing!
