We are days away from our fifth annual Shrimp & Lobster Festival. With the market's creation in 1979 with the intent to bring more people downtown, this event has increased foot traffic during the summer months. Not only vendors enjoy the additional traffic, but also it is great for the merchants of downtown Sarasota. A special thanks to our sponsors for helping make this event such a success.
Our own vendor Cheryl Gonsalves of Water Water Everywhere created this year's official poster.
Regular Market: 7:00 am - 1:00 pm
