secret garden market is held the first week of april + moonlight market is held the second week of november. the markets consists of 30+ vendors and take place on the shared property of 73 san marco avenue in st augustine, florida.
how are vendors selected?
this is an application based market. vendors are selected by a committee that curates a well rounded variety of offerings. due to limited space, we can only accept 20% of applicants. if you do not get in the first time, please apply again!
what is the rain policy?
because our market is an outdoor, open air event, it is subject to change due to the weather. the back up plan is to push the event to the following saturday. vendors commit to both weekends in their contract.
where do we park for the event?
parking is available at the parking garage downtown.
how many shoppers attend?
this market is well attended and we have seen an upward of 1000+ guests per event.
is this a free event?
yes. the event is free. we have a ticketed portion of the event that starts an hour before the free event kicks off. 100 people are able to purchase tickets to get first dibs on the great products as well as shop without a crowd. tickets are available for purchase on jenna-alexander.com
what type of vendors are you looking for?
small businesses or artists that create unique goods or can offer interactive experiences. Past markets have consisted of ceramicists, illustrators, letterpress companies, candle makers, jewelers, painters, sewn materials, vintage goods, tin types, furniture, and more!
do you only host local vendors?
nope! we've had vendors come as far as orlando, atlanta, tallahassee and more. we try to curate a fresh, new line up for each market.

an hour of crowd free shopping, a tote bag, and first dibs on all the goods!
