Plaza Courtyard Lands New Monthly Night Market

A new celebration of local arts, sounds and flavors is in the works for St. Pete this coming fall. Called DTSP Night Market downtown night market will take place the first Thursday of each month beginning September 7, and running through December 7.

The Burg’s vibrant creative culture will be on display during the event; DTSP Night Market will offer a curated selection Tampa Bay artists, crafters, jewelers, sculptors and more.

Shop local above The Witch 

Pickup screen printed tees, home decor, vintage treasures and artisanal food products. Overlooking The Ale and the Witch courtyard, the night market will offer premium views of the concerts that ensue on a nightly basis.

The market is currently accepting applications for vendors — space is limited. Night Market is pet- and child-friendly. It’s free to attend and runs from 6-10pm. Markets will take place on September 7, October 5, November 2 and December 7. The concept was conceived by LocalShops1.

Market boom underscores growth of St. Pete economy 

The proliferation of indie/flea markets is a testament to the entrepreneurial spirit the city of St. Pete has so effectively cultivated. Artists are now empowered to share their talents with a community steadfast in its commitment to shop and support local.

So, this fall, grab a brew from The Witch, enjoy blues, jazz and funk from the courtyard, and browse an eclectic selection of St. Pete-inspired goods. Learn more on the Night Market’s website and Facebook event page.  The Plaza Tower and Courtyard Shops is located at 111 2nd Avenue Northeast.
