Welcome to the second weekend in February 2020 here at the Market. We hope you and yours had a wonderful Valentine’s Day celebration whatever y’all created for each other. Mostly, it’s nice just to spend some devoted time with each other whether that’s a special someone, a great friend or being with your family. I just like all the chocolate myself and try to send out loving vibes to all my friends and family as often as I can throughout the year.
It’s that time of year when there is a holiday almost every single month. February has Valentine’s day where we give and receive cards and candy and some of the lucky few get other types of gifts from their sweeties. Whether you have a special someone or not treat yourself anyway with your favorite chocolate, a small gift or take a little trip over to the Market and grab yourself something special. Our bakers have lovely cupcakes. The coffee lady has freshly ground coffee to go with it. Our fruit and veggies ladies have lots of fresh, local produce to create a great salad, your own kind of dessert or even a special meal.
We want to wish all of our vendors and customers a Happy New Year. We also hope everyone will have a safe and happy holiday and come back to the market lots and lots in the coming year. Wondering around the market on Friday there are some great items available for those lucky shoppers. We have lost some vendors and are gaining more each week. Soon we will have the great home-ground specialty coffee vendor coming to the Black Row which might be quite popular. You just never know what you’re going to find from one weekend to the next available at the market. Come on down and check us out. We hope that all new vendors will get in touch with our webmistress to get listed on our Directory of Goods and your business card listed on our current vendors table.
We have made it to the second weekend in December for the last year in this decade. It is a rainy, foggy Friday but we hope the rest of the weekend will have more sunshine to encourage more visitors. Of course, Fridays are great to get a jump start on your shopping as we have a great fruit and veggie stand, a computer sales guy who can repair and sell you a laptop, entertainment vendors with lots of different sizes of TVs and so much more opened today. It is a great time to grab a meal, walk around the rows for exercise and do a little shopping besides. We have had a couple of vendors close down this week but that just means that there are more opportunities for you to start your very own business. Come on down and see what we have!
Our version of winter has started this month with frost on the windows in the morning and the temps dipping down into the 40s and sometimes even the 30s this past week. As with all Florida weather just wait a little while and it will change to something you might like better. Personally, we could use a bit more frosting to try and kill off the large quantity of mosquitoes before spring. Of course, we really need the rain too.
