Those that value freshness and support their community will find that Detwiler’s Farm Market is the ultimate place for shopping in the area. There is a wide variety of market fare available at Detwiler’s, including freshly baked items, produce that is now in season, locally produced meats and cheese, as well as home-style canned products.
Their garden center and greenhouse provide home owners and others who plant in their backyards with all they require to make their properties more aesthetically pleasing and to cultivate abundant gardens.
Produce is in the blood of the family members that own Detwiler’s Farm Market, a retail operation on the Suncoast of the Sunshine State that currently consists of three locations but is planning to increase to four in the near future. Even though the first location of the chain was not opened until 2009, the proprietors of the company have been selling food for a long time.
In the three grocery stores that are owned and operated by the same family in Florida—two in Sarasota and one in Venice—the fresh produce section receives a lot of attention and is extensively merchandised. A farmers market can be found inside the store, where it is used to sell and market various types of produce.
When customers visit the store located on University Parkway and Lockwood Ridge Road — which is the third location for the company — they are instantly made aware of the discounts that are available on various types of vegetables. These offers, such as distinct enormous displays of blueberries and strawberries, are conspicuously merchandised in large displays that are located in the entry to the produce department, which is directly to the right of the doorway.
The produce section takes up around 10,000 square feet of the whole 29,000-square-foot retail space. The shop, which first opened its doors in 2015, can be found on the northern side of Sarasota, a short distance east of the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport and a short distance west of the exit for Interstate 75 at The Mall at University Town Center.
Produce is marketed to customers through the use of hand-drawn signs, which are affixed on the product in question and come in a variety of colors. Customers are also informed by the signals when the quality of a product’s flavor is below the standard level. Customers have informed the Detwilers that they had not seen similar explanations anywhere else.
Because of its convenient location close to Elkton area, Detwilers Farm Market is a popular choice as a supermarket among both residents and tourists.
You won’t have any trouble finding a parking spot in the neighborhood. Outside the shop, there is a large open area where you may safely keep your bicycle if you want to go around by pedaling instead of driving.
