About our open-air Fresh Markets
Each Market is located in a different area of Tampa Bay that can support our mission. They are located in pedestrian-friendly, outdoor locations that can host open-air Markets featuring a minimum of 60+ Vendors selling only fresh, local, homemade, handcrafted and eco-friendly products.
With these offerings, each Fresh Market intends to draw residents and visitors to that area and to boost the local economy. Each Fresh Market provides a venue for local groups, businesses, and non-profit organizations to interact with the citizenry and strengthening community spirit through the market place.
