Let’s Talk Shop! The Market Marie

It’s been over two years since Colorful Clearwater made it’s first appearance, and the site now has over 350 articles and videos. Some of the most popular posts ever – with thousands of views – are about The Market Marie.

If you haven’t heard of it, you may be asking, “What the heck is The Market Marie?”

This chic outdoor market for small business owners pops up on the second Saturday of the month in Clearwater. It next happens this Saturday, October 9, 2021 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. with 85 vendors!

Catering to local small business owners, the market – located on the corner of Court Street and Myrtle Street in Downtown Clearwater – offers tons of products: arts & crafts, clothing, food and drink, plants, candles, flowers, makeup and so much more.

Plenty of FREE parking will be available at 640 Pierce Street one block away.

Lea from @Lbmakesit is one such vendor that will be at the next market. She says, “I’m a mixed media artist working the slow and simple way out of my home in Inverness, FL. My hands are in every part of the process from design to finishing touches. I create cards, art prints, apparel and stationery through relief print carving. I make keychains, trays and photo displays with resin, and I incorporate embroidery and woodworking to create one of a kind décor. I love getting to learn new things and try different forms of art, and I feel so lucky that I get to do this for a living because people want my art in their homes!”

@thecraftybroads are a Mama & Nanny duo that design and create on trend Bows for Babes. They explained, “It started as a hobby and quickly grew into a full-blown business. We can’t wait to share our passion with you!”

@avas_boutiqueshop sells ladies accessories and kids accessories such as luxury purses, boutique purses, sunglasses, headbands and wallets.

Having been diagnosed with Gluten Intolerant Celiac Disease, Laura went on a mission to find quality, and delicious, substitutes for some of her favorite gluten heavy foods. Why should a food sensitivity keep her from enjoying the foods she loves? After several years of searching, sampling, and mostly disliking the Gluten Free options available, Laura, and her husband Brian, decided to put their culinary skills to good use and create their own collection of Gluten Free desserts, and added in some Keto Friendly desserts as well. They’ve created some of the most delicious Gluten Free and Keto Friendly desserts on the planet (including some Delta 8 edibles). Using the best ingredients, their creative baking skills, and a total commitment to providing desserts to EVERYONE. Laura says, “You don’t have to have a gluten allergy to enjoy our goodies, they are delicious to anyone with taste buds. We present to you Connor’s Goody Bag— because food sensitivities shouldn’t come between you and your sweet tooth!”
