Special Event: Teen Author Book Signing
Serenaty Lumpkin, Asterism
The Granddaughter of Roverta Winn, proprietor of Traditional French Crepes, Serenaty has been coming to the Sarasota Farmers Market since the early age of 3 with her mother, Natalia Winn (owner of Big Top Baskets). Just helping out at first, she has now graduated to a professional “Crepe Chef” on Saturdays and also helps her grandmother run the business.

During long market days, Serenaty would read many books and developed an interest in writing. She particularly developed a love of poetry. Working at the Sarasota Farmers Market has given Serenaty opportunities to build connections with the community and meet other entrepreneurs like herself.

Come meet this amazing young entrepreneur at the Market this week! She will be signing her first published book Asterism. (RSVP on FB:

Serenaty will be located on Lemon Avenue south of State Street (Space #50).
Featured Non-Profit:
Adult Community Enrichment Program (ACE) /
Manasota Weavers Guild
The Manasota Weavers Guild formed in 1964 to promote hand weaving, spinning and other related fiber arts. In the beginning, the Guild founders first met in their homes and over the course of the past 57 years, they’ve met monthly at local art centers, churches, libraries and just about anywhere else they could find space.

As part of their mission and community outreach, guild members often volunteer to teach and/or demonstrate weaving and spinning. 

For over 10 years, the Guild offered weaving classes to the community through the Adult & Community Enrichment program (ACE) at the Suncoast Technical College and in November they are offering a new class: Intro to Weaving – Give It a Try.

ACE/Manasota Weavers Guild will be located on Lemon Avenue south of Main Street, near Wild Side Farms.
Entertainment this Week

Non-fictional characters from the '20s and '30s, circus performers, the side show, Prohibition, the war of currents all placed in a backdrop of gypsy swing.
