Artists, crafters, hobbyists UNITE against White Tent Art Shows
I am so happy the rain and the wind has stopped beating us all up at the markets! What beautiful weather this week has been and with two back to back markets this Saturday and Sunday, WHEW! the sun will be shining! Croz's Surf Shack food truck will be with us at Lakewood Ranch on Saturday with some tasty gourmet hotdogs - thanks to our media sponsor the Herald Tribune we have a nice 4x5 color ad in the LWR paper on Thursday! David Lyon will be singing and playing to entertain the shoppers. Then we set up at Apollo Beach on Sunday. I'm getting signs out early as the Manatee Arts festival is down the street, we get traffic from that (heck, we are FREE to get in AND park!) I could use a Food Truck Sunday.
For those vendors who have not tried our markets - we are a laid back fun group. Most markets you unload directly at your space and parking isn't very far away. I try to accommodate you on space - not squish you up to your neighbor. I don't charge per sq ft, just a flat rate, typically $25. My business purpose is to help you grow yours, provide safe and fun community and family focused events and give a portion of my proceeds to a local charity. Many of our events have fundraisers for several charities ( I am partial to the critters :-) )
Welcome to Spring in Florida!
