Tampa, and the greater Tampa area, is bursting with amazing local markets. A new addition to the roster is Mossy Hollow Market, it’s described as an enchanted forest-themed vendor market at Metals and Nature (1501 W State Road 60). The first Mossy Hollow Market will take place on September 30 from 2pm-8pm and you can learn more about the market and participating vendors on the event page.
For visitors, costumes are highly encouraged. Step through a woodland portal on the eve after the Harvest full moon and into a magical forest village of fairies, mushrooms, and sprites. Visit artists and vendors as you meander through the interactive woodland experience, complete with a potions bar, stargazing tent, photo op, wishing cauldron, wandering characters, and festive music.
An immersive enchanted experience in a Plant City forest
“The market will be something entirely different for Tampa Bay: An enchanted forest-themed curated vendor market, featuring over 30 highly curated unique artists and makers,” writes organizer Shannon Crosby. “All set against the backdrop of Metals & Nature’s beautiful 2-acre nature reserve oasis. The event is free for guests with free parking, and family-friendly. We encourage attendees to dress as their favorite magical creature, animal, or fungi!”
Crosby also operates the spooky pop-up plant shop The Citrine Ghost and runs the Instagram Weird Florida, and the co-organizer (also named Shannon) is a trained chef and owns The Fae Way, selling handmade fairy houses.
