Summer Markets continue for us at Safety Harbor market !
Greetings all, and thanks for your patience, the website has been technically challenged for a few weeks, but we are back up and running, and.....
This summer has flown by and can you believe in just 6 short weeks, we will be in full swing for our Fall season at shows at markets.
First, some good news, and some greater news -
This Saturday, Aug. 26th will be the last day of the Williams Park Summer Market, and although the forecast calls for some early showers, it looks like we can be rockin and rolling by 9am. The Good News is, this has been a wonderful summer market, despite lots of weather challenges. We have been so blessed by a great turnout of customers every week. The Summer Market has kept us, and many of our fellow market vendor buddies, in business and still thriving during the summer heat. Thank you so much for your support.
Note: Okay, so last day of Summer Market this weekend, and then Saturday Morning Market, downtown St. Pete, takes a break for the month of September. Many people ask why? It was decided years ago that the market take a break for the month of September in order for the Market management to a) take a much needed break themselves, b) gives them time to plan for the new season, and c) many vendors want a break too, to recoup, re-organize and re-energize for a new season.
That being said, nope, we are NOT taking a break ha ! And that's the Greater news. In fact, starting this weekend, on Sunday, Aug. 27th, and every Sunday in September, you can find Armstrong Nursery at the Sunday Market on the Main, Safety Harbor, FL., and we hope to continue with it, throughout the Fall.
Years ago, we did the Safety Harbor Thursday Morning Market, and loved the community. They decided to move the Market to a Sunday, under new management and have done a great job of enlarging the market parameter and adding more vendors, so it's a great little community market, around the Gazebo, on Main Street. Sunday Market hours are 10am-3pm and we hope to see you there !
The pic above is from our set up at the Tropiflora Nursery Fall sale last years, and in 6 weeks, the reopening of the 15th season of Saturday Morning Market, and the Tropiflora Sale, both on the weekend of Oct. 7 & 8th, officially start our Fall Market season.
Stay tuned for details about everything as we finish a full summer season, and start a new Fall season, with Markets and Shows at St. Pete, Sarasota, Mt. Dora, and Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo.
Also, for our north county customers, we will be participating in the last Summer Market at Pierce Street Market, downtown Clearwater (on the water) on Sat. Sept. 9th !
So much to do, so much to plan, so many markets and shows to get ready for, we can't wait !!!
