St. Andrews Waterfront Farmers Market first began as a seasonal market in 2004 under a modest circus tent (pictured right) at St. Andrews Marina. Later that year, the community erected a pavilion to house the Market. In September, 2010 a group of dedicated volunteers took the Market on as a challenge and transformed it into the current vibrant, bustling year-round market with a unique Make-It-or-Grow-It atmosphere. In April, 2011 the market became host to St. Andrews Community Garden and together they work to promote our local agriculture, inspire healthy living and improve our regional economy.
Our first market expansion occurred on September 10, 2011 and puts us on BOTH sides of the water - at St. Andrews Marina and at Smith's Yacht Basin on Beck Ave. For $1.00 each way, shoppers enjoy 3-minute ferry service between the two market sites on beautiful St. Andrew Bay. Our Market is proud to be America's only farmers market to offer ferry service to its shoppers!
We will expand the market again in 2012! Look for details about our satellite market in March.
Join us every Saturday from 8am to 1pm from February thru mid-December!
