The Marketplace

St. Pete’s buy-local culture is represented in this lively bazaar, just a short walk past the Pier’s Welcome Plaza. Area vendors showcase and sell their wares in kiosks and under 10-by-10-foot tents. Shoppers can browse under a solar roof structure that provides ample shade. For Marketplace hours, visit our Contact Us page.
