Fresh Air at this Favorite Downtown Market

Walk under the canopy of crepe myrtle trees that align Martin Luther King, Jr. Plaza in Downtown Pensacola on any given Saturday morning and you’ll find dozens of lively farmers and arts and crafts vendors selling organic goods at the weekly Palafox Market.

What began as a small, seasonal farmers market in 2007 has grown into a bustling, year-round, outdoor market that includes more than 100 vendors selling everything from fresh produce to homemade goods to handmade arts and crafts.


Palafox Market offers consumers a variety of locally grown herbs, fruits and vegetables as well as locally sourced meat, poultry, cheese, and baked goods. Many local chefs frequent the market to get fresh ingredients to incorporate into the culinary delights served at nearby restaurants. 

Scattered amongst the produce tents you’ll also find an array of talented locals showcasing everything from fine art, pottery, and jewelry to soaps, candles, custom textiles and an extensive variety of hand-made natural products. 

All of the friendly and knowledgeable vendors offer items that were produced within 100 miles of Downtown Pensacola. Vendors and goods sold at Palafox Market change weekly to accommodate a variety of talents and community interests.

The Palafox Market is located on Palafox Street between Wright and Garden streets. It’s open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine. 

Come and see why the American Farmland Trust ranked Palafox Market as one of America’s Favorite Farmers Markets. No exploration of Pensacola is complete without a trip to this delightful outdoor market.
