In Madeira Beach, the Thanksgiving Weekend Craft Festival is the second annual juried outdoor craft showcase where you can browse the works of crafters from across the country. There's also a green market offering a selection of exotic plants, dips and other gourmet items on Madeira Way between Gulf Boulevard and 150th Avenue N in Madeira Beach.
