Immokalee's Produce Market

If you live in Southwest Florida, you’re probably aware of the agriculture in Immokalee and the culture you can find in town. But have you ever been to the Produce Market? This is a place where dozens of farmers get together to sell their produce.

While walking around the market, we discovered Mario Martinez. Martinez was born and raised in Immokalee and has been working in that same farmer’s market for more than 30 years. He shares with us the struggle of working in the market and the appreciation of the hard labor getting produce.
