Since the addition of the Palafox Market in 2011, Pensacola residents have been spoiled with fresh organic produce and local homemade items every Saturday. We are so excited to welcome another local market in Downtown Pensacola!

The newest addition to local farmer markets includes The Market at Al Fresco.  The owners of Al Fresco open air dining and East Hill Honey have teamed up to offer a mid-week option for residents to purchase local produce, herbs, baked goods, and much more.  Enjoy live music, grab some dinner, and stock up on your favorite local items.

The Market at Al Fresco occurs every Wednesday from 3pm to 7pm, March 15th through October 15th.  The Market is located at 501 S. Palafox St., Pensacola, FL 32502.

The Market at Al Fresco accommodates 12 vendors and includes a variety of home grown and home made products.  While market vendors vary weekly, anchor vendors include:
  • East Hill Honey- Local honey from local bees including different flavors and variations. They also sell handmade soaps, honey sticks, and even honey pecans.  We love their local honey pack which includes honey from Gulf Breeze, Pensacola, and 30A.  http://easthillhoney.com/
  • Sunne Joy Bread Company- Sunne Joy Bread Company is a favorite vendor among both markets.  Enjoy local homemade artisan breads baked. Using only the finest ingredients, their most popular breads include The Palafox Sourdough, Rustic Cinnamon Raisin, Whole Wheat, The Paleo Loaf and the French Loaf.  http://www.sunnejoybreadco.com/
