Best New Farmers’ Market: Edge District Farmers Market

Best New Farmers’ Market

Don’t panic, it’s organic. Housed in the gallery/studio and parking lot of painter Geff Strik at 1000 Central Ave. in St. Pete, Edge District started small and continues to grow. The market opens every Wednesday and Sunday (rain or shine) and features organic food from local growers, Belgian waffles, cheese, jewelry, chair massage and more. There are distinct advantages to the intimacy of this smaller market. At this formative stage, it feels more like a family or a group of friends gathering for a potluck or a morning swap meet, and vendors we’d passed by a hundred times at the much-larger Saturday Morning Market stood out in this setting. facebook.com/EDGEdistrictfarmersmarket.
