Vendor Resources

The Saturday Morning Market is the result of the grassroots efforts of individuals committed to developing a creative community spirit in downtown St. Petersburg. The Market has achieved remarkable success in fulfilling its mission, becoming the largest fresh market in the southeast United States. But more importantly, it’s brought a vibrant energy to our city that is transformational.

The Market is guided by a three member Steering Committee. The committee is composed of Mark Johnson, Gail Eggeman, and Carol Ringold.

Lynnette Gryniak, the Market Manager, is responsible for the weekly market operations.
