Indie Markets have grown in popularity over the past two years. The Indie Flea at the Rialto Theatre brings together the most inventive artists, chefs, botanist and curators in the Tampa Bay area.
Residents have shown immense support for the prosperity of small local businesses. In St. Pete, the night market, Blue Goose moonlight market, Brocante Market, Black Crow’s Funk & Flea and Indie Market in the EDGE District provide a platform for businesses in Tampa to gain exposure on both sides of the bridge.
Shop local under the stars
Seminole Heights — a neighorhood in renaissance — is home to staple local haunts (i.e. Mermaid Tavern, Ella’s Americana, Three Coins Diner) and a litany of new culinary and spirit concepts. It’s a neighborhood bursting with opportunity and ingenuity. The last Monday of every month, local makers come together for a special Moonlight Market where residents can browse vintage clothing, paintings, records and more items they can’t find anywhere else.
On Monday, April 24, the Moonlight Market joins Samberlah Events at C.1949 (6905 North Orleans Avenue), a new bar located not far from the Seminole Heights neighborhood. The patio market bar will feature cocktails made with daily fresh-squeezed juices, handmade herbal elixirs and all natural mixers.
