TAMPA, FL – Strategic Property Partners, LLC has announced a new monthly fresh market series that will debut in the neighborhood in early 2023. Launching in January, The Market at Water Street Tampa kicks off the upcoming neighborhood’s 2023 community programming and will welcome more than 50 local food and wellness-focused vendors and artisans each month.
The Market will provide residents and visitors the opportunity to experience the new lifestyle available in Tampa’s growing live-work-play destination. In 2023, Water Street Tampa will welcome more retailers, restaurants, and community events as the neighborhood continues to transform Downtown Tampa.
“We look forward to bringing the community together to access fresh produce and products from Tampa’s impressive local vendors in our monthly markets as part of our vision for creating a wellness- and community-oriented neighborhood,” said Lee Schaffler, Chief Portfolio Officer for SPP.
The Market at Water Street Tampa will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the third Sunday of every month, starting Jan. 15, 2023, through the end of the year.
Taking place in the heart of the neighborhood, guests can enjoy a mix of vendors, farmers, and live entertainment along Water Street. Cultural moments will be celebrated at the market including Black History Month, International Women’s Day, Pride Month, and more. Water Street Tampa will collaborate with Tampa Bay Markets to select the vendors for the series.
“Tampa Bay Markets is excited to bring a unique, fresh, local shopping experience to Water Street Tampa and to support local makers in becoming part of this thriving community,” said Greg Barnhill, Finance Director of Tampa Bay Markets.
Vendors include local farmers like Green Leaf Farms, Riverbend Cattle Company and The Honey Couple, and artisans such as Sweet Harvest Farms, Tampa Bae Macrame and Bowtism.
“Water Street Tampa’s transformation of Downtown Tampa is incredibly beneficial for the surrounding communities, and we are thrilled for the opportunity to be a part of new market series starting next year,” said Cynthia Young-Jennings, owner of Sweet Harvest Farms, a handmade bath and body shop.
“We look forward to sharing our unique, organic products with the Tampa community.”
The Market at Water Street Tampa offers residents and visitors a way to begin the week with a fresh mind and body, and provides convenient access to fresh, healthy foods and a walkable environment — important components of the WELL Community Standard, a designation pioneered by Water Street Tampa to set a new benchmark for wellness in the built environment.
Water Street Tampa is the world’s first WELL Precertified Community and is on track to receive its WELL Certified Community designation by the International WELL Building Institute next year.
