Back in 2004, the St Andrew’s Waterfront Market was started under a circus tent and a handful of vendors.  Then in 2010, a group of volunteers took the market on and it grew so that it grew out of its space by the fall of 2011 and expanded to the boardwalks of the Smith’s Yacht Basin and the two locations became connected by a water taxi.  The market also incorporated due to its growth in June 2011 and took over the responsibility of the St Andrews Community Garden.

In April 2012, the market expanded again eight miles west and over two bridges to the Grand Lagoon Waterfront Farmer’s market which is located at Pirate’s Cove Marina  the market at St Andrew’s operates on Saturday and Grand Lagoon operates on Sundays with a crew of volunteers running it.
