As cooler temperatures drive visitors to the Florida Keys for the winter and spring, the island of Duck Key is once again ready to showcase a collection of the best food vendors and artisans from around the Keys and South Florida. Made possible by the generosity of Club Duck Key, the market will run every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. through March 28, 2023. The market features up to 35 vendors each week, ranging from perennial favorites like Mediterranean Delight, Homestead Produce and The Cheese Lovers to new entries like Just Accents wood carving, jeweler Chiki’s Store and a made-to-order taco stand.

“We are very excited to return for our second seasonal market at Club Duck Key,” said market planner Rosa Perez. “We look forward to continuing to see our amazing customers and welcoming all new ones.”

Visit the market at Club Duck Key, 100 San Juan St., Duck Key.
