St. Andrews Farmers’ Market kicks off in new location

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) – St. Andrews Market celebrated over 18 years Saturday morning.

He held his first farmer’s market at Oaks by the Bay Park in Panama City. It once stood in the CSS Yacht Basin parking lot along Beck Avenue.

Management said the new location will allow less wind and more space, parking and greenery for people and pets.

“On Saturdays, it gives families a fairly inexpensive activity to do for a few hours,” said St. Andrews market manager Kelsey Douds. “It’s a safe place to hang out.”

Vendors, musicians and the public came together to enjoy all it had to offer.

“It’s a much better place,” Tracy VanDerSchaaf said. “It’s a circular route for sellers. You get the bay breeze. The grassy area for children and pets, and a beautiful pavilion for musicians. It’s 100% better. »

Vendors who had never been to the St. Andrews Farmer’s Market in previous years were happy to showcase their wares at the park.

“We’re excited to be able to bring truly healthy, cruelty-free food to the community,” said farmer Hope Woods.

Kittens, homemade pastries, jewelry and more were there.
