It's a season of family, friends, good food, and relaxation, and you can celebrate all of those things at the Market! Bring your whole family to the Market, and let your kids pick out their favorite fruits and veggies from our amazing produce vendors. Visit with old friends and with vendors who have become like friends. Sample some of the delicious fare offered by our food vendors, and above all else, relax. Take your time. We're there from 8am to 2pm. See you on Saturday!

Red Roof Farms is about more than just selling honey. They are also local beekeepers and rescuers. This week, they engaged in one of their biggest rescues to date.  Approximately 85,000 bees were moved from a hive built in a Jasmine bush growing through a chain link fence. We are so happy for the bees and proud of one of our Market vendors for their good work!
Red Roof Farms was also recently made aware of a shortage of non-perishable goods at VISTE, a local charity who serves the senior population. In an effort to help, they will be hosting donation bins at their booth at the Market this Saturday. If you are inclined and able, please bring your donations to the Red Roof Farms tent.

New Market Footprint:

Due to the construction on NoBay Village, the Market now 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. As always, there is also on-street parking on Tennesee Ave. and Pine St.

The Lakeland Downtown Farmers Curb Market will be closed on Saturday, December 24, but we will be open on Saturday, December 31.
