Holiday Gift Markets are popping up all over St. Petersburg, both virtually and in-person, and we’ve gathered up the local Sunshine City events you can’t miss as you continue to shop small for the holidays.
We of course encourage you to support local however you can throughout the holiday season (and beyond). We’ve assembled a local gift guide for your convenience.
Those wanting to support local farmers, artists, and more vendors can visit the returning Saturday Morning Market at Al Lang Stadium. If you need to get more in the holiday spirit, then you should check out Green Bench Brewing’s holiday movie screenings in the beer garden.
