    I think it is great the effort that Greg Barnhill has put into this.

  10. Thanks for the support that has been voiced for the market. While we have a strong presence for food vendors, we are still looking for a higher representation of the local neighborhood artist community. Please forward the information to any artist that you think may be interested or have them contact me at SundayMorningMarket @tampabay (dot)rr.com for additional information.

    Please tell your neighbors, co-workers and friends all about the market. If we don’t make it worth the vendors time (and hopefully the neighborhoods) then they won’t have an interest in continuing with participation in the market.

    I’ll see everyone at our first neighborhood market on February 14th. Stop by the info table and say hello!
