Saturday Morning Market

Fall is definitely in the air here in the Tampa Bay area.  Which, for the uninitiated, means not that the weather is cool, but that it is, rather, noticeably less hot.  It is supposed to get into the low 60s here overnight, and this morning was about the same, with a high of about 85.  It was also beautiful and sunny, with a nice breeze off the water.  All of which meant that it was a perfect Saturday morning to visit the Saturday Morning Market in downtown St. Pete ... especially since the market is decidedly dog friendly.

The market typically features a wide variety of vendors, live music, and great opportunities to sample yummy food, people watch, and, this time of year anyway, enjoy the beautiful weather.

Nothing says welcome to Progress Energy Park like sidewalk chalk ...



Except perhaps mango wine slushies ... sweet or savory French crepes ... and locally grown produce ...


Tucker & Phoebe were of course not the only attendees of the canine persuasion ... 




But of course they were there ... and as they usually do just about wherever they go ... they had a great time ... 





Hope everyone else had a great Saturday, too!

Hey Tucker,

What a great place to go and 'hang' with all the other Doggies especially now the weather is more pleasant - AND they provide chairs for you too!! Cool!!

Your pal Snoopy :)

Now you did it, you made us all hungry with your talk of slushies and crepes:)

That last pic of Tucker and Phoebe on the chair together is just so sweet.

Our Farmer's Market closed for the season last weekend, and I miss it already! Bunny loves going with me, too!

What fun! We take Heidi to the farmers' market with us, but we don't see nearly as many dogs as you do!

That looks like a great market! I always love our Farmer's Market because there are so many dogs and kids running around. Such a fun place! Plus, the good is good too. ;)

Our Farmer's Market is much smaller than yours and dogs aren't allowed:( We'd love something like what you've got, dog friendly and wonderful stuff to buy, couldn't be better. And perfect weather too, yay!
