With the new year comes a new, massive monthly vintage market. Vintage Marche holds its first market in the space where the Brocante monthly market was held until it closed in December. Guests will see many familiar faces at Vintage Marche, founded by a former Brocante vendor. More vendors have been added and many have worked together to renovate the 15,000-square-foot warehouse space to create a new layout. The exterior of the building will also have a new look. The opening weekend includes raffles for market gift cards and a whole bunch of stuff to pick through. It will return the first weekend of every month. 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. 2200 2nd Ave. S, St. Petersburg.


Celebrate the new year with a new piece of artwork from the Downtown Dunedin Art Festival. This year’s event brings more than 150 artists hailing from 25 states to Main Street. The juried outdoor show features a wide variety of artwork. So whether you have a bare wall begging for a new painting or photograph, a space in a window perfect for letting light through a glass vessel like one by Randy Kuntz’s, pictured, or a spot outside for cool yard art, you’ve got options. And don’t forget the wearables and jewelry. Free. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. 271 Main St.
