From noon to 4 p.m. today is the first Sunday Market (aka Farmer's Market) at the Vilano Beach Pier. The Sunday Market will be every Sunday from noon - 4 p.m. Come support the community and find fresh produce, desserts, baked goods, on-site cooking, arts, crafts, entertainment and much more. George McGovern will be attending the market from around 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. McGovern has been an advocate for the local farmer and United Nations Food for Peace.
Approximately 40 vendors from Vilano Beach and surrounding areas will be out every Sunday. Today's grand opening event will feature appearances by the Easter Bunny, so bring the kids!
"The Vilano Beach Pier is an ideal location to host a community market. It is a beautiful newly renovated area that hasn't been utilized to its full potential. This location is also extremely convenient for the Vilano Beach residents as well downtown St. Augustine residents and visitors," says Market Manager, Mitch Hall. Mitch Hall is also the Market Manager for the very successful Wednesday Market held at the St. Augustine Pier.
The community has been planning this market for a year and we are excited to have it. The website is still under construction, but will have more photos and info as the event continues to grow. If you or someone you know is interested in being a vendor, space is limited, but there a few vendor spaces left. For vendor and guest information, please contact Mitch at 904-540-8797. The official website is www.thesundaymarket.com. Please click here for the vendor application.
