If you are planning your next relaxing beach vacation, plan a trip to South Padre Island. The island is known for its soft sandy beaches and the calm, turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Laguna Madre. With more than 300 days of sunshine each year you are almost guaranteed to have a beautiful, sunny beach vacation.
Whether you are on a trip with your significant other or a group of friends, South Padre Island has a little fun for everyone. Spend your days relaxing on the beaches or go for a leisurely kayak around the calm waters of the Laguna Madre. If you’re looking for a more thrill-seeking adventure, zip around on a jet ski or view the island 600 feet from above on a parasail. If you are looking for activities off of the beach, then stop by the South Padre Island Farmers Market.
Visiting the South Padre Island Farmers Market
The farmers market is open every Sunday from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. At the market, you can find everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to honey, cheese, flowers, spices, nuts, baked goods, and more.
If you get hungry while you’re shopping, there are also several vendors selling freshly-made smoothies, falafels, and homemade sausages among other things. Local musicians come to the market each week as well to perform, so make sure to wear your dancing shoes.
The South Padre Island Farmers Market is open year-round at 8605 Padre Blvd on the lawn in front of our building. If you brought your dog along on vacation, they are allowed to come with you to the market.
While at the farmers market, make sure to pick up some fresh veggies, cheese, nuts, and other treats to bring back to your vacation rental. All of our vacation homes have kitchens equipped with appliances, dishes, cookware, and utensils so you can prepare a meal. Amenities vary depending on which rental you choose but our larger rentals have full-sized kitchens come equipped with high-end appliances, granite countertops, and plenty of space to prepare a meal.
