Every month the hip, up and coming city of St. Pete hosts an incredible indie market that attracts people all throughout Tampa Bay.
Located right outside of the popular brewery, Green Bench Brewing Co, this indie market is filled with 100+ local artists, indie designers, makers, vintage sellers, and eclectic crafters.
The whole street is shut down for this beloved event. Although it is monthly, there are two indie market dates: one Saturday afternoon (October-May) and the final Friday night of the month (all year-round). This gives you and your date two opportunities to check out this unique and happening market for your next date.
Within the vendors, couples can buy items including handmade jewelry, printed t-shirts, vintage clothing, crafty home goods, antique items, flowers, succulents, and more. Some vendors present are as follows: Niknaki Vintage, Misomia, Bodhi Basics, Hopcloth, Fernweh Designs, Nightbreed Creations, Astatula Candle Co, and more.
In addition to these vendors, couples can find local food and drink to enjoy while walking around, or just chilling, listening to the live music present. Food stands are set up, offering delicious cuisine so diverse it can satisfy all taste buds. The vibes are nothing but indie and free spirited.
This market is a great representation of what St. Pete is as a city and a community. It exists to bring light to local artists, vendors, and restaurants in an attempt to bring together and empower the community even further.
Beginning in 2012, this market became a big hit quickly and now similar markets are popping up in other areas within Tampa Bay. However, this market is the original and the best place to take your significant other. Your dog too, if you decide, as the market is entirely pet friendly.
Don’t miss the next St. Pete Indie Market with your loved one this coming Friday night, February 23rd.
