You'll have to get your empanadas and pineapple in Williams Park this Saturday, while the construction for the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg moves the popular Saturday Morning Market down the road.
The Downtown Saturday Morning Market, where more than 100 vendors, farmers and artisans peddle their wares each week, will motor down to Williams Park on Fourth Street and First Avenue N from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
The market is temporarily relocating this week and will be closed March 12 as downtown streets become part of a road course for the Grand Prix from March 11 to 13.
On Saturday there will be live music by Pete Merrigan and Friends, along with additional music by Owen Poteat, the one-man-band, and accordion by Nick Boutwell. Information about parking options is available at SaturdayMorningMarket.com.
The market will return to its regular location in the Al Lang Stadium parking lot on March 19. Now in its 14th season, the market has become one of the largest such markets in the Southeast, running from October to May.
