Apricot & Lime Breed Fruitful New Market



Like the first steps through a whimsical portal, find yourself entranced by the vivid hues and embellishments in all directions, from radiant mosaics and ornaments to brilliant clocks and statues, that carry you through a seemingly endless array of creativity and artistry. Warehouse turned curio emporium, dubbed Bazaar on Apricot & Lime, opened its doors May 3 with the ever-so-warm-and-bubbly founder Judy Alexander welcoming crafty locals and tourists upon arrival, her passion for local craftsmanship exuding as she shares with them upcoming events and raffles while introducing them to the fresh scene. 

The Bazaar runs from 9am to 2pm every Thursday, Friday and Saturday year-round, with live music starting at noon. More than 20 regional vendors sell a wide variety of merchandise, making the market a one-stop shop for decorative art, handmade gifts, baked goods, clothing, jewelry, one-of-a-kind collectibles and more. Have your chakras and tarot cards read by the masterminds of Life in Fantasia, rummage through retro goodies provided by Blue Cat Vintage or pick out an amusing pet portrait from Karma Saw That.With this quantity of merchants comes a diversity of style that caters to virtually all tastes; a booth of beachy décor and seashell-adorned light fixtures might be followed by a booth of holistic crystals and essential oils, and then quirky doormats and handcrafted candles at the next. A tea room and cocktail station allow those wishing to take a break between shopping sprees to kick back, relax and enjoy some of the exquisite flavors our community has to offer.
