Old Main Street in Downtown Bradenton.


The Bradenton Farmer' Market is a place where the community meets each week to enjoy fresh produce, local art, upbeat music, demonstrations by local chefs, and family activities. Parking is free on weekends, and dogs on leashes are always welcome.


The market sets up every Saturday on Old Main Street, just north of Manatee Avenue from the first weekend in October to the last week in May. Old Main Street is a tree-lined retail district of cafes and restaurants running three blocks north from Manatee Avenue to the Manatee River, where it meets the Bradenton Riverwalk.


The Riverwalk is a 1.5-mile park that features day docks, an amphitheater, performance areas and pavilion, a skateboard park, an interactive splash pad, and much more. Learn more about other fun activities taking place in downtown Bradenton.
