Cape Coral Markets

Cape Coral Markets - fresh produce at the Farmer's market, a "trip" to Bella Italia, the mother of all fleamarkets, and more

Take a break from the grocery store and make your food shopping in Cape Coral an adventure by trying out locally grown produce, freshly caught Gulf seafood, and all manner of items at our specialty markets.

While you're in Florida, you have to have fresh seafood at least once!

Freshly picked fruits and veggies from the farmers market are much tastier than what you can find at the grocery store.  Shopping outdoors in the middle of winter on a warm, sunny day for produce is even better!

Expand your horizons with imported foods from Italy, and fine cuts of meat ........... and I bet you will find anything you need at Fleamasters Fleamarket.

Make that special recipe with local fresh fruits and vegetables, shop for supplements and organic produce, you'll find all these specialty items at our Cape Coral markets.

Paesano's

cape coral italian market

Can't go to Italy? You don't have to, just go to Paesano's, where you can experience a little touch of the Old Country in Paradise!

This Cape Coral market has Italian specialties and imports in a store decorated to look like you're actually in Italy.

Pasta is stacked up high under clotheslines and walls painted with windows reminiscent of an old village.

They have the highest quality freshly-cut meats and the best cold cuts.

As a matter of fact, I have a neighbor who will only buy his meats here.

You will also find local produce, which is delivered daily to make the perfect tomato sauce.

Domestic and imported Italian specialty items, fine wines, and home made desserts are all waiting for you at Paesano's.

Lobster Lady is a seafood market and restaurant, and one of my most favorite places to go out to eat.

The food is fabulous and you guessed it ..... they specialize in lobsters! And they have tons of them in tanks along one wall of the market.

cape coral seafood

Fresh Nova Scotia lobsters are flown in once or twice a day, Ipswich clams, New England scallops, grouper from Pine Island, and other seafood are delivered 6 days a week to ensure the finest quality for both restaurant and market patrons.

This popular restaurant has both indoor and outdoor dining, and because they buy such a high volume of lobsters, you may be able to pay less for a lobster cooked to order than picking one up at the supermarket and cooking it yourself!

Cape Coral Markets - Citrus

For a quick and fun thing to do, go to Sun Citrus Harvest in Ft Myers for fresh Florida-grown citrus fruit!

It's located on the corner of Six Mile Cypress and Metro Pkwys and is a family business that was started in 1940 in Vero Beach by the Edsall family.

The Ft Myers packinghouse and retail store was opened in 1990 so you can buy the freshest Florida oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, and tangelos.

You can also have the fruit shipped and can make the arrangements right here so you or loved ones up north can enjoy a "taste of Florida sunshine" during the winter and early spring months.

Also available for purchase directly from their store are key limes, peaches, and strawberries plus specialty foods such as jams, jellies, honey, salad dressings, gift baskets, souvenirs, toys, and snacks.

But that's not all, you can sample their amazing juices such as orange, cranberry orange, lemonade .......... and  make sure you try the strawberry orange ......... it's the best juice I've ever had!  Then buy a gallon or 2 to take home.

Also very popular is their soft serve ice cream.  It's absolutely delicious and I recommend that you get the orange vanilla twist.
