What is the Market Mafia?

Market Mafia was established as a cheeky description for a group of people with a common passion for frequenting local markets, making a list of targets and hitting them on solo adventures, with friends or alongside family. Each Market Mafia is uniquely diverse…composed of spouses and partners, mothers and daughters, families, groups of likeminded friends, humans and their furry, four-legged companions. Essentially “partners in crime” with one similar interest… hitting the markets!

How can I join the Market Mafia?

Which cities are currently featured in the Market Mafia calendar of events?

Our calendar currently features markets in the following cities: St. Petersburg, Tampa, Gulfport, Wesley Chapel, Clearwater, Dunedin, Largo, Indian Shores, Oldsmar, Safety Harbor, Lakeland, Sarasota, and Pinellas Park.

What kind of events can I expect to find on the Market Mafia calendar?

At this time, our sole requirement is that the market/event includes handcrafted goods for sale. We feature markets that may offer live music, food and even produce, but at this time we are only including markets within the greater Tampa Bay area where local handcrafted goods are being sold and featured during the event.

How often do these markets occur?

We are currently featuring weekly, monthly, annual and one-time events! Please click View Details on each individual calendar event to read more about that market. There you will find our take on the event, as well as the links directly to their social medias.

How can I best use the Market Mafia calendar to find what I’m looking for?

Explore our user-friendly search and sort filters within the calendar of events to narrow down what you are looking for based on: date, city, cost, indoor/outdoor, pet friendly, alcohol, food, music, produce, kid friendly, day/night.
