St. Petersburg's Saturday Morning Market is back

ST. PETERSBURG — The St. Petersburg Saturday Morning Market, billed as the largest farmers' market in the Southeast, will reopen for its 15th season Saturday in the Al Lang Field parking lot.

The market, which gets about 10,000 visitors each week, will celebrate its international character in October by highlighting dozens of vendors who are first-generation immigrants. Shoppers can buy foods reflecting the cultures of Ecuador, Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica, India, Thailand, England, France, Belgium, Egypt and Ethiopia.

Among the wares offered by the 170 vendors rotating through 130 spaces are fruits and vegetables, rustic bread, gourmet prepared foods, specialty foods, herbs, plants and hand-crafted gifts.

The market is held 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays, October through May, at First Avenue S and First Street.
