Market Newsletter for January 14, 2017
View this email in your browser
Dear Vendors,

It looks like tomorrow is going to be much better weather-wise, so we definitely have that to look forward to.

Also, I haven't been able to present the Curbie Award Winner for 2016 with their prize because he or she has not been present at the Market, so tomorrow should be the day!

Don't forget to send me information and pictures about your business so that I can update your page on the website, promote you on Facebook, and promote you in the newsletter.

Finally, the LDDA is now located in a shiny new office in the heart of Downtown Lakeland on 117 N. Kentucky Avenue across from Munn Park. As a result, our email addresses have changed!

Can We Have a Do-Over?

Last Saturday was not so fun between the wind, the rain, and the plummeting temps. But luckily, tomorrow we get a chance to do it all over again. So please join us for another great morning of delicious food, bountiful produce, and some of the most talented local artisans. If you're interested in seeing what all of our Market vendors have to offer so that you can plan your trip accordingly, peruse our website. See you on Saturday!

Produce Spotlight

Would you like to sample some fresh fruits and vegetables from our produce vendors? Volunteers from the Enactus community service group at Florida Southern College will be offering free samples between 10am and 2pm this Saturday on the corner of Pine Street and Kentucky Avenue next to the Fresh Access Bucks tent. Not sure what's in season? Check out some of the delicious Produce Picks of the Week!

Vendor Specials

Nuts Galore has fresh, roasted-on-site nuts. They have warm, roasted cinnamon almonds, which are made all morning long. Get them while they're hot! Also, mention that you read about Nuts Galore in the newsletter and receive 50 cents off a small bag of cinnamon almonds or $1.00 off of a large bag!

Mind the Construction

As part of the Downtown Area's continuing renewal, restoration, and growth, Market customers and vendors will need to be patient for the next few weeks as the City of Lakeland’s Public Works Department installs a storm drain in Traders Alley. This work will close North Kentucky Avenue at Traders Alley as well as parts of Trader’s Alley. Work began Monday, January 9 and is expected to take under 4 weeks to complete. No work will be done on Saturdays, and customers will still be able to navigate through the Market using the sidewalk on the east side of Kentucky Avenue. None of the Market parking areas will be affected.  You can learn more about the work here.
Do you--or does someone you know--have a SNAP card?
Individuals with a SNAP Access EBT card can receive $10 of free Florida produce if they spend $10 on their card. Stop by the FAB/Market Information tent for more information!

The Market Footprint:

Ever wondered where, exactly, the Market ends and begins? The Market stretches directly north from the train tracks, up North Kentucky Avenue, across Pine Street and Bay Street, all the way to Oak Street. That's over four blocks of Market fun! There is parking conveniently located at both ends of the market--on Oak Street and across the train tracks by Munn Park. There is also limited on-street parking on Tennesee Ave. and Pine St.
