The streets and beaches of the Fort Myers area are lined with sunshine, water and a variety of fresh, natural food choices. Not only are these foods beautiful to the eye, but they are also a great source of nourishment for the body. Here are some of our favorite places on The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel that are serving up a bounty of greens, citrus and natural remedies.
Visitors of every diet will find local produce stocked on the grocery shelves, and appetizing eats in the deli at For Goodness Sake Organic Market. Plus, organic wine and beer are at the ready for wherever your night may take you.
Among more than 140 shops at the outdoor mall of Coconut Point is Delicious Raw Kitchen & Juice Bar. Flavorful, fresh juices and smoothies are made on the spot alongside nourishing fusion bowls, wraps and soups. If you need a shopping spree pick-me-up, then coffee, supercharged drinks and sweet frozen treats are sure to hit the spot.
This local, family-owned citrus grove storefront is beloved by visitors and residents alike. Orange-infused honey, pecans and marmalade are available year round, and free fresh-squeezed tastings are at the juice bar during the citrus season. A small post office in the back of the store ensures you’ll have fresh citrus waiting at your door–or the door of a friend–as soon as you return.
The warm and welcoming aisles at Back to Nature are lined with supplements and herbs of every kind. The staff can answer questions about products and serve freshly made organic juices and smoothies. Plus, a raw food chef and capable kitchen can prepare and serve raw, vegan and omnivore plates.
Fruit bowls, rice bowls, salads and coffee are on the menu, but the restaurant’s namesake “kreips” are its most famed item, and for good reason. Each savory or sweet option is nestled in a fresh crepe made from scratch. This foodie favorite is found in-store, at a food truck and at your doorstep with delivery, so you can access its quick and affordable selection any way you’d like.
This natural market offers a wide variety of organic and locally grown produce. Stop by the Café and Deli for freshly prepared salads, wraps and sandwiches for dine in or take out. If you’re in a hurry to get to the beach, grab a wholesome organic juice smoothie from the Organic Juice Bar or browse the grocery store for some healthy snacks.
Any fresh food list would be amiss without mention of the slew of farmers markets. Available seasonally and on Thursdays, Fridays and the weekends, you’ll find some of Florida’s best produce directly from the hands of those who grow it.
You may be visiting The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel for the sun and sand, but don’t miss an opportunity to enjoy its finest produce and freshest, natural foods.
