About the River District Farmers’ Market in Fort Myers
Formerly known as the Downtown Farmers’ Market, the Fort Myers River District Farmers’ Market is the oldest farmers’ market in Lee County. In 1995, the Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency organized the market so that local vendors could rent inexpensive, convenient spaces and sell their wares directly to customers at reasonable prices. The concept took off, and the market has been a fixture in Fort Myers ever since.
The number and variety of vendors has expanded over the years, and now you can find people bustling about in search of the perfect local products, including produce, organics, tasty baked goods, smoothies, nuts, pickles, BBQ, cheese, fresh cut flowers, Essential Oils, coffee, and, now, paella! It’s a lively place, particularly in season, and a great place to visit for breakfast or lunch.
Enjoy Naples’ Original Paella at the Fort Myers Farmers’ Market
At River District Farmers’ Market, you’ll find Fire & Rice at the center of all the activity enthusiastically preparing delicious paella in large, shallow pans out in front for everyone to see. We’re passionate about paella, and it shows! Our chefs interact with the crowd and encourage people to join in the preparation process. It’ fun and exciting, and everyone wants a turn!
Using only the finest ingredients dating back to 16th Century Spain, our chefs combine chicken and sausage with imported saffron and Bomba rice for a delicious flavor and texture you can’t deny. The paella is a beautiful palette of primary colors, and gentle aromas fill the air, touching all the senses. People come together and delight in this unique culinary experience, and when they taste our paella, it exceeds every expectation. Many of our clients have traveled all over the world and say that our paella is the best they’ve ever had!
