In addition to small businesses, The Market Elaine includes live music and activities the entire family can enjoy.

The Market Elaine and their sister market, The Market Marie in Clearwater, are named after the event organizers’ grandparents. The team writes: “Both of these amazing women showed us how to dream big, prioritize family, and love others while making the world a brighter place. Sadly, we lost both of our grandmothers during 2021, and we miss them dearly. While neither of our beloved grandmothers were able to physically visit our markets, we are grateful we can honor their names in this way.”
If you love markets, don’t forget that Water Street Tampa will debut an open air market of its own this January. The Westshore Marina District also hosts a weekend and night market of its own.
