This Friday, May 24, head over to the Tampa Theatre for the Franklin Street Farmer’s Market from 5:30-7:30 p.m, at 711 N. Franklin St.
The first 200 participants will receive a free Tampa Theatre reusable grocery bag.
Vendors from all over Tampa Bay are joining together to give out samples, sell goods and raise awareness about all facets of sustainability.
Bike/Walk Tampa Bay, The Tampa Bay Beekeeper’s Association, Waldenponics, registered nursery Whitwam Organics, and TrailBale Farm of Temple Terrace will all be in attendance.
Urban E Recycling will also be on-site taking unwanted wires, batteries, phones and other electronics for recycling.
After guests are through exploring vendors, they can head into the Tampa Theatre which will be showing the touching new documentary, The Biggest Little Farm. A film festival hit at Sundance, Toronto, Telluride, and others, the documentary chronicles John and Molly Chester’s eight-year quest as they trade Los Angeles apartment living for 200 -acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with a sometimes unforgiving environment.
Tickets for the 7:30p.m. screening of The Biggest Little Farm are $11, $8 for Tampa Theatre members.
