When we’ve been anchoring out a lot we look forward to getting into a big city marina and we can’t think of a better place along this beautiful Gulf Coast than Sarasota. It has everything here to satisfy a cruising boater. Nice marina facilities (Marina Jack), restaurants right on the dock, music to serenade you to sleep, a newer downtown area with shops and more restaurants and if you happen to be there on a weekend – an amazing farmer’s market and art fair. We love Sarasota!
The Satasota Farmer’s Market is a visual treat. The quality of produce available is exceptional, we didn’t need a lot since we recently provisioned but we had to buy some fresh corn and watermelon.
