Ruskin Community Market opens for 2nd season Oct. 24

The Ruskin Community Market re-opens for the season on Saturday, October 24.

From 9am to 1pm the outdoor market will be open, offering fresh local produce, foods, plants, arts, crafts and music.

Join local artist Cory Wright to learn about the time honored tradition of Italian Street Painting- with chalk as the medium and the pavement as the canvas. Cory will explain various techniques for working with pastels and provide valuable tips, as well as give a short presentation of Street Painting examples.

Kids (and even adults who still connect with their inner-child) can make their mark on the pavement under the Camp Bayou tent during the Seasonal Opening of the Ruskin Community Market. Chalk will be provided as well as some natural objects as starters to get the creativity flowing, or bring your own vision of nature to create your masterpiece. No charge or RSVP but if questions contact Dolly at

The Ruskin Community Market is located across from the Ruskin Post Office, in the 600 block of First Street , NE. New vendors are welcome. Please call 813 645-6028 to reserve a spot.

The market is a project of the Ruskin Community Development Foundation,

Proceeds from vendor space rentals will go to fund various Ruskin community projects.
