Local Roots Farmers Market products available for online ordering and pick-up, delivery

Writer: Derrick Shaw

The Local Roots Farmers Market has created a website to connect their vendors with local shoppers amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

LocalRootsOnlineFarmersMarket.com has more than 40 local farmers market vendors selling their products including fresh produce, cheese, breads, pastries, prepared meals, seafood, meats, seasonings, pastas, guacamole, salsas, pressed juices, soaps, hand sanitizer, crafts, BBQ and more.

Local Roots online program offers home delivery and no-contact curbside pick-up two days a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The pick-up locations include Naples Outlets at 6060 Collier Blvd., South Cypress Brewing at 895 Wiggins Pass, Naples; Sanibel Outlets at 20350 Summerlin Rd. in Fort Myers, and Jimmy’s Java at 2534 NE 9th Ave. in Cape Coral.

Home delivery is also available for most residents in Lee and Collier counties.

Orders for Saturdays must be placed by the end of the day on Thursday and orders for Wednesday must be placed by end of the day on Monday.

“We hope our customers will continue to support the farmers market vendors by ordering online during this crisis,” said Jean Baer, who, along with Jean Baer, owns Local Roots, LLC. “This continued support will help mitigate the economic impact on our community as well as allowing residents to keep eating healthy, local foods.”

Baer and Ventura have been operating farmers markets in Southwest Florida for 13 years and look forward to the 2020-2021 season which will include 10 locations to buy from local vendors in open-air markets. Along with the online farmers market business, they have two farmers markets that remain open through the end of May, including the Sanibel Island market on Sundays at City Hall and Coconut Point in Estero on Thursdays at Coconut Point Mall.
