Corey Avenue Sunday Market is an oasis of indulgent pleasures on St. Pete Beach

With market season in full swing, there are a plethora of places to find local treats. For those who like a little sea breeze with their shopping, the weekly Corey Avenue Sunday Market is one of the area’s best hidden destinations.

Unlike many markets, the Corey Avenue Sunday Market specializes in delicious indulgences. The market is full of great food, sweet desserts, baked goods, smoked salts, fresh coffee, aromatic candles, and local nurseries with tons of plants. Along with all the treats, local artists showcase crafts and other creations.

The market’s main season kicked off in October, and the sunny market attracts dozens of vendors every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 300 Corey Avenue. Local artisans spread over three blocks surrounding (and along) Corey Avenue, creating a gathering of designers that is one of the best pleasure experiences in town.

While the on-site vendors rotate from week to week, some of the constant stars help make the market a must-visit every Sunday. Sweet treats are always a hit with regulars like churned, baked ice cream and vegan desserts in the sun. For something savorier, we recommend Tamales Azteca Rojo, Crooked Johnson’s small-batch meats or Komeme’s vegan empanadas.

And of course, there’s fresh food from Aurora’s Produce or the Florida Fruit Co-Op, fragrant home treats from Julien or Moon and Mantras, or a delicious cup of coffee from Grove Surf + Coffee. Learn more about Corey Avenue Sunday Market and follow vendors on their facebook page.
