Family owned and operated, Summer Day Market and Cafe is Marco Island’s premier destination for healthy food. The Cafe offers guests food made from organic ingredients, many of which are gluten-free. The restaurant is motivated to serve customers with a simple philosophy that food should just be food.
Organic and natural sandwiches dominate the Cafe’s menu with meat and vegetarian options available. Smoothies are also made with organic and natural ingredients.
After eating lunch in the “Zen” room, guests can browse the grocery store and purchase gluten-free foods and food supplements. The store also carries a selection of health-related books, semi-precious healing stones, organic and fair-trade clothing, home decor, and much more.
The staff is known for being helpful and patient in explaining to customers the benefits of a healthier diet. Summer Day Market also works with restaurants and chefs to include gluten-free options.
Opening hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Fridays and 10:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. The store closes Sundays during the off-season period and opens otherwise from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Prior to becoming perhaps the best smoothie maker on the planet, the Sun King would get his smoothie fix at Summer Day. The selection of fruits and other ingredients is endless. The grocery aisles offer things you just can’t get anywhere else on the island. The sandwiches are great, too.
Since you probably can’t convince the Sun King to make you a smoothie, you should just head over to Summer Day and enjoy one of theirs with a sandwich or a wrap. The Sun King wants you to stay healthy.
