Moonlight Market returns Nov. 11 to uptown St. Augustine


The Moonlight Market is returning for its third year with the most sought-after local makers selling one-of-a-kind handcrafted wares.

Presented by Jenna Alexander Studio and Sunday, Moonlight Market will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Nov. 11 at 73 San Marco Ave.

The evening market celebrates local artists by providing a atmosphere where they can connect with shoppers looking for a unique and curated experience. Artisan products include small-batch honey, candles, silver jewelry with precious minerals and rocks, retro décor and up-cycled goods, to name a few. Twinkle lights and paper lanterns will sparkle above while DJ Zach Engh spins mood music, patrons nosh on food and drink offerings from Sunday and Alexander releases her new 2024 calendar.

“I love the energy of this market,” said Alexander. “The weather has just turned a bit crisp, we’ve got amazing food and music, the courtyard is buzzing with activity — it’s the perfect place for makers to find the people who appreciate what they create. As an artist myself, it can be hard to battle the big-box mentality, where everyone has the same everything. This is a space where the community can find unique, curated pieces they won’t see anywhere else.”

The market will feature more than 30 local vendors, including NouNou Moderne, Tintype, Wild Bloom Candle Company, Bluebird Growers, Bee Hill Farms & Blooms and more. Sunday's homemade larder staples like sourdough loaves, preserves and pickles will be available for purchase.

“We’re so proud of how this event has grown each year,” said Misty Lake, owner of Sunday. “We’ve gone from 24 vendors last year to over 30 this year, which is just fantastic! The more we can share these amazing small businesses with our community, the better. It’s so great to see them come out and support our local artists and creators.”
