The market is held every week in downtown St. Petersburg and is the perfect place to buy fresh produce and a gift or two. Choose from more than 15 different international cuisine types of ready-to-eat food, whether it's Jamaican patties or Irish pies. Live music plays in the center and performers like balloon artists and magicians are scattered throughout. Recent visitors found the market the best place to be on a Saturday, and many especially enjoyed the social experience.
Located in the Al Lang Field parking lot, the market is open from early October to late May every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. A smaller summer market runs from June to August in Williams Park every Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Plenty of parking is available near the market: the South Core Garage across the street has more than 1,100 spaces with a $3 entry fee and the Baywalk Parking Garage two blocks north has more than 1,300 spaces and costs $1 for the first four hours. For more information on vendors and parking, visit the market's official website.
