Southwest Florida Pit Stop: Southern Fresh Farms

A pit stop in racing is quick. It’s necessary, but a prolonged stay is unwise and unneeded. A Southwest Florida Pit Stop is a quick visit (less than 30 minutes) to a quick, fun, cheap place in the Fort Myers, Sanibel, Naples, Cape Coral area.

This weekend we visited Southern Fresh Farms for the first time. This small farm market and park is a nice way to spend half an hour. According to the friendly proprietor, all of the vegetables sold in the market are grown by the farm. Lettuce is cut fresh on demand. Southern Fresh Farms also sells citrus from Sun Citrus and farms fresh fish.

The second piece of the farm is a walk through the gardens to the back of the property to visit the animals. Southern Fresh Farms has a small petting zoo with chickens, a turkey, cows, horses, and attention-stealing goats – including a baby named Penny.

Overall, a nice way to spend some time if you’re in the Daniels corridor.
