Palafox Market (South!)

A second Palafox Market location has opened to accomodate more vendors, more customers, and more memorable Saturdays. Palafox Market South is located on the round Plaza Ferdinand on the corner of Palafox and Government streets.  The Downtown Improvement Board (DIB) says that the new venue will increase the vendor count by dozens and the visitor capacity by thousands.

What began as a sleepy farmer's market and idea of the DIB in 2007, Palafox Market is now a Saturday morning staple of artists, chefs, farmers, and friendly passers-by. 

There's room to grow. 

Demand for more vendor spaces made it clear that Pensacola could easily accommodate a second farmer's market.  

Caroline King comes to the market to discover new arts and crafts that reflect the culture and heritage of the Pensacola Bay Area.  

"I like to find items that are made from local materials,"  as she looks at a wooden flute carved from driftwood.  She gets pretty excited when you mention the new market. "More vendors means more unique gifts for my friends and family!"

Palafox Market South kicked off on May 15, and it will run every Saturday from 9am to 2pm. The original Palafox Market (North) is located at Martin Luther King, Jr. Plaza on Palafox between Garden and Gregory Streets.
