People line up early on Wednesday and Saturday mornings at the local farmers’ markets in Naples to get the first batch of original paella from Fire & Rice. If you haven’t tried it yet, come on down and join in the fun!
You’ll find Fire & Rice at the Third Street Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings from 7:30 am -11:30 am and at the Marco Island Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays from 7:30 am – 1 pm. We’ll be there in the middle of all the fun, cooking up our award-winning paella right out in front for everyone to see.
Our chefs prepare paella with passion and enthusiasm, interacting with the crowd and including them in the process. As the excitement builds, everyone’s ready to take their first bite, and when they do, they say it’s out of this world, like nothing they’ve tasted before.
Not an early riser? No need to worry. Now you can pre-order our paella online, and we’ll put some aside for you before we run out. Just make sure to come down to the market before it closes to pick up your paella. We look forward to seeing you there!
What’s a Fire & Rice Party?
What do you get when you combine award-winning paella with a unique and exciting experience? You got it – it’s a Fire & Rice party!
When you host a Fire & Rice party, your guests are in for a real treat. Not only is the paella amazing, the experience is unique and exciting, something guests will remember for years to come.
Our team is passionate about paella, and we bring energy and excitement to every occasion. As our chefs prepare the paella in large pans out in front for everyone to see, guests gather around, engaging in the process. You immediately feel the excitement, and even the wallflowers join in the fun.
The preparation process is a sensual experience for everyone involved. The rainbow of colors in each pan is beautiful and captivating, and gentle aromas of saffron fill the air. As guests come together in this communal dining setting, they feel a connection with others that’s different than anything they’ve experienced before. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and everyone’s having the time of their lives.
Our paella is made from only the finest ingredients dating back to 16th-Century Spain and authentic in every sense of the word. We offer traditional combinations of chicken, sausage, saffron, and Bomba rice, and the meat can be swapped out or combined with seafood. With vegan options also available, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
