Tampa Downtown Market is Back Today

The Tampa Downtown Market has started up again. Just in time for the beautiful fall weather!

Every Friday through May from 10AM to 2PM, vendors and musicians gather in Lykes Gaslight Square in downtown Tampa.

We enjoyed the market last season. I was great to see some positive life going on in downtown Tampa! It's a nice way to get some fresh air with the family. We bought some organic produce at very reasonable prices. We even rode the downtown trolley! We felt very urban on that day.

By the way, the Seminole Heights Sunday Morning Market starts October 10. Read about My Experience Experience at the Seminole Heights Sunday Morning Market from last season.


OCTOBER 1, 2010

The highlights of our morning:
  • Feshly-Made Plain Donuts
  • Sweet Potato Knish 
  • Sweet Potatoes (79 cents a pound)
  • Fresh pineapple ($2.99 each, peeled and cored) 
  • Free samples of hydroponic green beans & tomatoes
  • Public art and lovely fall(ish) weather  
We got our picture taken by a reporter. I wonder if we'll be in the  
St Petersburg Times tomorrow?

Turns out the answer is "yes". We're on page 3 of the Tampa section! bean.
Chock-full of sweet potatoes!
Fresh and delicious knish.

  1. Good to know there is organic produce there. Now with the opening of the children's museum, it would be nice if that market was on a Saturday. I would love to see downtown Tampa become more alive on the weekend. It is hard for me to get down there on a work day (I work from home, so I'm not downtown!)
