Small Shops, Big Dreams

Whoever said that money can’t buy happiness was wrong–well, at least partially. Some of the most wonderful things in life—whether a material good or a worthwhile experience—come from a shopping trip, especially when you shop local. Not only do you get to discover something new and unique to the area, but you also get to support someone’s dream of sharing what they love to do. 

Main Street Market Lakewood Ranch is a newer street market hosting a diverse array of vendors from the Manatee and Sarasota County areas. Created and coordinated by three local girl bosses: Lindsay Wood, owner of Blossom & Burn Co; Nikki Roenicke, owner of Barre3 Lakewood Ranch; and Niki Dalsing, owner of VinyLuxe, Main Street Market was born from a desire to help the community to shop locally during the economic downturn of 2020. Beginning as a holiday market last November, Main Street Market was met with so much community support and success that it is now a year-round event.

Main Street Market will kick off the holiday season this Saturday, October 16, from 10 am to 2 pm—with its first market event since May. Some vendors include Apana by Marie, Simply Sweets, Pottery by Osa and Island Dreams Soap, plus, about 30 other vendors and an anticipated 400 plus attendees. Make the trip this weekend to shop local and help someone live out their small-business-dream.
