Though the focus of the Farmer's Market is fresh produce, flowers & greenery, and home-baked goods, its entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well.

Using natural elements to create functional and decorative items is not only a great model for recycling, but also a treasured outlet for creativity. Imagine the impact if more examples of reuse were transformed into functional works of art!! 3rd St & 12th Ave S, Naples, FL


  1. Especially an outlet for creativity - love it!

  2. Reuse, use local and creativity all in one project - delightful!
