Locals and visitors alike are invited to join some of their favorite Key West Artisan Market vendors during the dog days of summer at the Southernmost VFW Post 3911 for the all new Summer Mini Market!
Sunday, May 14 celebrates mother’s day at the first market of the season with a special brunch and a complimentary mimosa for mom. There will be many opportunities for mom to pick out her own gift so it will be just right. The event will open at 10 am until 2 pm.
Guests may purchase fresh produce, cheeses, orchids and plants, breads and dips, desserts, locally caught seafood, Rodriquez cigars, Latitude 24 Coffee and lots of other culinary treats along with many local artists, jewelry creators, photographers, candle makers and collection curators for your shopping pleasure.
The VFW’s air conditioned dining room will be open for a sit down breakfast, brunch or lunch with chef Mark serving up lots of fresh made options to tempt your palate. A full bar (inside and out) will offer mimosas, bloody mary’s and all your favorite libations at the best prices on the island.
Parking is plentiful courtesy of the Gulf Atlantic Bank (corner of 5th and N. Roosevelt) who also offers a convenient walk up ATM. As a courtesy, guests are asked not to park in PetSmart’s spots unless making a stop at their store.
The every other Sunday, 10 am to 2 pm event mirrors the Artisan Market regular season with 8 dates currently to include: May 14, May 28, June 11 , June 25, July 9, July 23, August 6 and August 20. The Key West Artisan Market at Higgs Beach is scheduled to resume November 5.
