Outdoor Beach Market at Coquina Beach – Anna Maria Island

Whether you’ve visited us before or it is your first time on Anna Maria Island there is plenty of activity waiting to welcome you.

One of our favourites is a visit to the Beach Market at Coquina Beach. The Beach Market is a free, family friendly, seasonal market located a short walk from Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals Inc. A perfect place to shop outdoors, especially this year as we avoid crowded indoor shopping space. Also, this is a great way to support local businesses while learning where they are from and how they make what they sell. 

At the Coquina Beach Market you will find a variety of quality artisans and vendors selling home baked goods, a colourful array of fresh local produce, hand crafted clothing, antiques, and unique original artwork everywhere you look. With so many unique items you’re sure to find something that will thrill those on your Christmas list.

Imagine telling your friends and family you walked along a pathway covered with tall pine canopies looking out at the beautiful turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico to buy their Christmas gift. They might not believe you, until…you show them your pictures!

You will feel the great vibe as you walk throughout this market as it truly portrays the spirit of Anna Maria Island. We hope you enjoy shopping the many great local vendors as much as we do.
