It’s official…downtown Tampa is becoming the place to be.  Not just for the restaurants, hotels, nightlife, arts and culture, and fun things to do in Tampa Bay, but now for family-friend (and healthy) options too!  The Tampa Downtown Market is going to open on October 24, and operate on Fridays from 10am-2pm. 

If you are like me and go to Ybor City for the Fresh Market every Saturday, then you are already getting very excited about this.  And, if you have never visited the Fresh Market, then you need to make your way to downtown Tampa on the 24th! 

There’s going to be fresh produce, cut flowers, homemade baking goods, organic products and much more.  Local accomplished organic caterer and executive chef Tiffany Ferrecchia will be running the market, so you can bet there’s going to be some great stuff!  If you make it out on special days, there may even be local radio stations and entertainment…maybe! 

It all happens at Lykes Gaslight Square in downtown, so there’ll be parking all around.  Head over to the Market’s website,, to find out more. 

Until next time, we’ll see you at the downtown market.  And don’t forget to check back and let us know what you thought about the Market. 

Also, remember to  keep checking the website for more info on area updates and events.
