TALLAHASSEE DOWNTOWN MARKET MONROE AND PARK AVENUE

Celebrating local art, food, music, and fun in the park for nearly 20 years.

Nestled beneath the stately veteran oaks, in one of Tallahassee’s richest historic areas, the Downtown MarketPlace is where Saturdays come alive!

In this tranquil setting amidst a vibrant downtown, celebrated local musicians play their music, authors and poets present readings, and regional artists show their work. Local farmers offer Mother Nature’s best produce, special events bring hands-on activities for children and you might catch a preview of upcoming cultural events or gain new awareness for a business or organization.

 

The Downtown Marketplace features fresh homegrown produce and organic items. Fresh bread and eggs are available. Look for fresh cut flowers and native plants. These are our local farmers offering Mother Nature’s best. Most of our farmers welcome WIC checks.

This season may bring all the special events you’d expect and some new features to spice things up a notch!

ABOUT DOWNTOWN MARKET

Our Market offers a stroll through a showcase of what Tallahassee is all about. Music played by local musicians, samples of delicious food from family owned businesses- an international flair with vendors who provide Turkish loafs of bread, traditional west African meals, true English scones and jams. Beautiful handmade crafts from our neighbors who are artists, veterans who are wood workers. Our MarketPlace offers the ability to connect with customers who frequent the market, familiar faces that stroll in every Saturday to grab a meal, pick up produce, jewelry, or a gift for a friend.

This weekly Saturday market provides a taste of what is good about our community- easy access to opportunities, cultural enrichment, an inclusive atmosphere. It is a consistent event, ongoing for nearly twenty years, that our community depends on.
