The Market at Water Street Tampa brings together more than 50 of the best food, art, and beverage vendors in the Tampa area the third Sunday of each month. This event is organized in partnership with Tampa Bay Markets and runs from 10am-3pm. It’s an open air event that’s absolutely free to attend. On Sunday, April 16, Water Street Tampa will host a special Earth Day edition of the event.

During the Sunday Market Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful is hosting a workshop that will teach children how to grow their own food, and each child will walk away with a planted seed and knowledge to take it home and nourish it. Real caterpillars from BuzzFarms will be on display feasting on native milkweed. Reps from the farm will teach attendees about native plants, the migration cycle and other interesting facts about butterflies and how to help protect them.


Water Street Market adds recycled art display

One of the key highlights of this Earth Day-inspired event is a recycled art display in Raybon Plaza, showcasing some of Tampa’s local artists who use recycled items in their creations. Visitors will also learn about the migration cycle of butterflies and other interesting facts about these delicate creatures, as well as how to help protect them with BuzzFarms.

If you’re interested in making a positive impact on the environment, don’t miss the sign-ups for the largest beach cleanup with Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful on April 21. And as you wander through the district, you’ll pick up tips and tricks on recycling that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine.
