French Market this weekend in Largo

LARGO — The popular French Market returns Saturday, celebrating its 12th year with a daylong shopping spree and fundraiser for the Botanical Gardens Foundation.

New this year to the free event are blankets, scarves and other items made from the fibers of alpacas raised on a local ranch. Visitors can meet the alpacas in their onsite corral. Also, photographer Laurie Ross will autograph her new book, Shop Dogs: A Photo Essay of Dogs that Go to Work.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., shoppers can walk the market grounds at Julie's Cottage at Provence and Periwinkles at 13128 Indian Rocks Road to find coastal distressed furniture, vintage jewelry, garden accessories, wood potting tables, outdoor candelabras, yard art, kitchen gadgets and more. Pastries, muffins, cookies, sandwiches and wraps will be available throughout the day.

The Botanical Gardens Foundation will sell memberships for $30. The money is to be used for renovating the two-acre West Garden for new picnic areas and landscaping.

Free parking will be available across Indian Rocks Road at Anona Methodist Church.
