Hitty Goes to the Farmer’s Market

As part of my “Exploring My Neighborhood Series”  I took a trip to the River District of Fort Myers to get some fresh veggies at the farmer’s market.

Farmer’s Market Today!


The River District Farmers’ Market is open every Thursday between 7 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Centennial Park parking lot, under the U.S. 41 Caloosahatchee Bridge at the corner of Heitman and West First streets, just West of the U.S. Post Office.

This market has been a favorite of locals and tourists since 1994 and offers local produce, seafood, baked goods, honey, nuts, cheese, flowers, plants and much more.  The food trucks are a more recent addition to the market

An added attraction is the beautiful River District of Fort Myers with it’s brick streets, historic buildings, decorative metal sculptures, and of course, palm trees.  Fort Myers is called The City of Palms

In Which Hitty Visits a Thrift Store

Recently, while I was out and about with my adopted human, Shirley, we stopped at one of our favorite thrift shops, the Hope Chest Resale Store for Hope Hospice in North Ft Myers.  The Hope Hospice organization provides specialized care to people with challenging and life changing illnesses.  We are glad to support this needed service.

There are many, many thrift shops in the Ft Myers area but the Hope Chest stands out for it’s uniqueness.  In addition to a room just for books and a room just for holiday items, there is a sewing and craft room.  It is a real treasure trove.

It’s always Christmas at the Hope Chest

Today, we came home with some vintage sewing supplies and some small stones to send to Shirley’s grandchildren.  Such a fun day
