Monthly markets in Tampa Bay

It's our favorite season in Florida: outdoor season. True Floridians know we don't enjoy the outdoors between May and September because of heat, humidity and bugs. Thus this is our time to enjoy our slice of paradise.

While there is always something fun and unique to do in Tampa Bay, there are also events that recur monthly. Many of these are farmers markets and street festivals. Take a look at some of our favorites around Tampa Bay.
