The Sanibel Island Farmers Market, known for its vibrant atmosphere and delightful surprises, showcased its holiday spirit this past Sunday. The market, led by co-owners Betsy Ventura and Jean Baer, treated visitors to a unique rendition of the classic holiday song, “The 12 Days of Christmas,” Sanibel Island Farmers Market style.

The talented vendors, brimming with enthusiasm, joined forces to create a memorable performance. As the song unfolded, attendees were delighted to discover the market’s own twist on the traditional lyrics. The rendition included delightful references to the market’s offerings, such as 12 homemade cupcakes, 11 German pretzels, 10 delectable cheeses, nine mouthwatering empanadas, eight varieties of beautiful flowers, seven freshly baked French baguettes, six flavorful guacamole options, five heavenly Keylime pies, four scrumptious crab cakes, three jars of locally sourced honey, two cups of aromatic coffee, and a basket overflowing with an assortment of fresh fruit.
