If you love boats, have salt water flowing through your veins, or if you are dreaming about deals on fishing gear, marine equipment, or other maritime flotsam and jetsam, then the Cortez Nautical Flea Market is for you. This free family-friendly event will be held on Saturday, October 23, 2021, from 8 am to 12 pm, outdoors at the Florida Maritime Museum. The Cortez Nautical Flea Market will also include a nautical-themed arts and crafts sale at the Cortez Cultural Center. Parking will be available at the F.I.S.H. Preserve located on Cortez Road next to the Cortez Cultural Center, directly east of the Florida Maritime Museum. The Florida Maritime Museum is located at 4415 119th Street West in the historic fishing village of Cortez. The museum will be closed on Saturday, October 23, with all Nautical Flea Market activities held outside on the grounds. Serving the public since 2007, the museum’s mission is to collect, preserve and share traditional knowledge, cultural artifacts and personal stories specific to Florida's fishing and maritime heritage. The Florida Maritime Museum is a part of the Manatee County Clerk of Circuit Court and Comptroller's Historical Resources Department, with additional support from the Friends of the Florida Maritime Museum. Situated on the Cortez Nature Preserve, FMM grounds were purchased with funds from the Florida Communities Trust Preservation 2000 Program and the Manatee County Board of County Commission.
