This eclectic open-air flea market is a Fort Myers favorite for breakfast, bargains and silver screen hits. After chowing down on a hearty made-to-order breakfast from the snack bar, visitors peruse 300 booths selling both new and used items, including jewelry, fresh produce, one-of-a-kind antiques, books, furniture and linens. The beautiful fresh citrus grown along the banks of the Caloosahatchee is especially popular. Then, after intense flea marketing, patrons can unwind with a drive-in movie.
A whopping 400,000 square feet of bargain bliss await visitors at this enormous Fort Myers flea market. With over 900 vendors, Fleamasters is the largest market in Southwest Florida and offers an astounding variety of merchandise, including, but definitely not limited to, fresh fruits and veggies, paintings, electric bikes, Florida souvenirs, antiques, outdoor equipment, sundresses, rare perfumes, cutlery and local wines. Plus, scrumptious restaurants, air-conditioned stores and live entertainment ensure a delightful day of browsing.
Adored by locals in Fort Myers, this largely Hispanic flea market is the oldest and most distinctive market in Southwest Florida. While Ortiz Avenue's nearly 600 indoor and outdoor vendors sell everything from beach towels and clothing to luggage and musical instruments, the market's most cherished offerings are its superb, amazingly priced fresh local produce, including tomatoes, avocados, strawberries, peppers and melons, as well as its fresh-off-the-boat seafood. The snack bar serves tasty treats, too.
