Local vendors from throughout the South Florida area will once again take over the Old Town Pompano Beach downtown area, located on the corner of Dixie Highway and Atlantic Ave. (41 NE 1 St. in Pompano Beach).

Residents and visitors will have the opportunity to socialize, exercise, eat, shop and support local vendors as they offer fresh produce, unique handmade goods and creatively and distinctly prepared foods.

On opening day, the market will feature the traditional Pepper Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with Mayor Lamar Fisher at 10 a.m.

Yoga on the Plaza hosted by Hot Yoga Home will take place from 9-10 a.m. Brunch and Bubbly with friends and family and healthy, unique shopping can be enjoyed throughout the event.
