The popular weekly event temporarily gives way to the St. Petersburg Firestone Grand Prix.
ST, PETERSBURG — The St Petersburg Saturday Morning
Market goes on the road Saturday (March 5) temporarily relocating to
Williams Park. Downtown streets become part of a road course for next
weekend’s Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
Williams Park, located at
First Avenue N at Third Street, is just four blocks from the Market’s regular
location in the parking lot of Al Lang Stadium. Market hours are 9 a.m. to 2
Saturday Market regulars are encouraged to park in their normal parking spots
on March 5. Additional paid parking will be available in the Methodist Church
lot on the north side of the park. More information about parking and other market details is available at www.SaturdayMorningMarket.com.
On March 12, the Market will be closed due to the Grand Prix, but will return
to its regular location in the Al Lang Stadium parking lot on March 19. The
Market is held weekly on Saturdays from October through May.
Now in its 14th season, the Market has experienced extraordinary
success, becoming the largest in the southeastern United States. About 10,000 customers
visit weekly, shopping from 130 vendors who offer a wide variety of produce,
prepared food, flowers, plants and crafts. Customers regularly attend from as
far as New Port Richey, Lakeland and Venice.
The award-winning Market was recently voted as the best event in St Petersburg
by the St Petersburg Downtown Neighborhood Association for the second straight
