Get the holiday weekend started off right by celebrating in a not so scary way and taking your kids-and yourself--to the Market for some sweet treats, fresh produce, and unique finds. Check out Gee Gee's Homemade Brittle or Nuts Galore for a yummy, nutty candy alternative. Buy some pretty pumpkin decor from Re-Purposed Creations, a Halloween mask from Boondock Studios, or some Halloween earrings from Theresa's Promise. Check out the Vendor Pumpkin Decorating Contest and help your favorite vendors win the title "Most Creative"--just fill out a voting slip and turn it in at the FAB/Market Information Tent (or give it to the vendor to turn in). See you on Saturday!
Mrs. Baker's Biscotti will be back at the Market this Saturday! Sample some of her delicious Pumpkin Biscotti, as well as some of the other yummy varieties she has to offer.

Jim Luna, the Market Manager, is currently looking for new musical talent to entertain Market customers on Saturdays. If you are interested, or if you know someone who might be interested, either email Jim at email@example.com or talk to him directly at the Market. Please provide a a recorded sample of your work.

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.
