Find yourself missing the freedom of Treasure Island’s Friday Market? Longing to browse the makeshift aisles of the Treasure Island Community Center & Treasure Island Park, searching for new succulents and homemade bread? Well, we have the news for you: The Friday Morning Market returns on Dec. 3. The weekly market runs through Apr. 29 between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.; find it at 154 106th Ave.
Buy Local, be Merry
Rock out at ROC park while supporting local vendors at the Treasure Island & Madeira Beach Chamber of Commerce’s 3rd annual Merry Beach Market. On Dec. 11 from 2-8 p.m., enjoy live music, fresh food, cold drinks, local artisans, and work from designers and creators. Drop off toys at the Christmas Toy Shop, an organization that gives toys to local children who are in need. Pets and kids welcome, rain, shine, or – don’t jinx it – snow. Event info.
