Celebrating its 22nd year, the Tallahassee Downtown MarketPlace offers an enticing range of goods including fresh-baked bread, jams, eggs and plenty of fresh Florida produce from area farms, ripe and ready to enjoy. Handmade soaps, honey, native plants and even pet treats are also popular among the many visitors each week.
Local musicians play their music on stage, authors and poets present readings of their latest books, and regional artists show their fine arts and crafts. Special events bring hands-on art activities for children or sneak previews of upcoming cultural events.
The Downtown MarketPlace takes place every Saturday from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, at Ponce de Leon Park on Monroe Street at Park Avenue, March through November. For more information, or if you would like to become a vendor, email Downtownmarket@earthlink.net, or call 850-224-3252.
