Looking for a great, local, outdoor event to attend in Apollo Beach? MiraBay Market is a local farmer’s market located at MiraBay waterfront community in Apollo Beach that is held the 3rd Sunday of the month from 11AM-3PM. Upcoming dates are May 21st, June 18th, July 16th, August 20th, and September 17th of 2017.
MiraBay Market has a focus on sustainability. Sustainability is “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. Farmer’s markets support our economy, here are a few stats:
- Every $100 spent on local businesses puts $68 the local economy versus $48 when shopping at a big box retailer
- Money spent at local businesses generates 3.5x more wealth for the local economy compared to money spent at chain-businesses.
- If every family in the United States spent an extra $10 a month on local, independent businesses instead of chains, over $9.3 billion dollars would be directly returned to our economy.
Vendors are small businesses that range from Tampa, St. Pete, Ruskin, Brandon, Temple Terrace, and Lithia. Vendors sell food, honey, jewelry, art and more. The market is family and pet friendly and serves alcohol. Live music and local entertainment is held at the monthly market.
