Islamorada’s Gigantic Nautical Market to Bring Bargains Feb. 24-25
The Gigantic Nautical Market is to return to Islamorada’s Founders Park at mile marker 87 bayside Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 24-25, for the annual outdoor boat show, nautical market and food truck rally.
Billed as a “boat show with a beach,” the show has grown to gargantuan proportions with nearly 400 vendors. As well as boats, attendees can find fishing, diving and other sporting equipment to enhance their outdoor pursuits.
Shoppers will also find furnishings for boat and home along with art, jewelry, clothing, accessories and more.
The entire show is outdoors, with 18 food trucks spread around the park and Rotary beverage booths offering Bloody Mary and rum punch drinks.
Market hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
Parking is available at Coral Shores High School, mile marker 90 oceanside, with free shuttle transportation to the market grounds.
Admission to the open-air event is free, although a $5 donation to the Upper Keys Rotary Foundation’s scholarship fund is suggested.
