Island theme highlights Nocatee Farmer’s Market


The monthly Nocatee Farmer’s Market took on a tropical theme Saturday, with performances by Prince Pele’s Polynesian Revue. In addition to displays of traditional Polynesian dancing – including fire dancing – the show enabled guests to get in on the island action, donning flower leis and grass skirts and practicing their finest hula moves.

The tropical theme carried over to the market’s vendors, whose offerings this month included colorful sarongs and beach cover-ups, artwork made from starfish and decoratively painted surfboards. Attendees seeking a tropical treat, meanwhile, lined up at the Kona ice truck.

Also on hand was the OneBlood mobile blood unit, which was accepting blood donations in the wake of the recent mass shooting in Orlando.

Each month, the Nocatee Farmer’s Market brings more than 80 vendors and crafters to Nocatee Town Center.
