Our Market Vendors

The Dancing Goat, Tampa, Florida

Pam Lunn, Farmer

We are a small family urban farm offering free range eggs and raw goat milk products including milk, cheeses, kefir and yogurt from our own animals. We avoid chemicals on the farm and our animals are treated as family members first, and then food producing animals. There is no shortage in goat milk this year as we had a gazillion babies last spring and are expecting another gazillion starting in November. You never know when we will pack up the littlest ones and bring them to the market as ambassadors!

We also carry raw cow milk products from JBT Jersey Farm as a service to our customers that wish cow products as well.  Pre-ordering to thedancinggoat83@gmail.com prior to the market is the best way to make sure your products are reserved when you arrive.

Be sure to try our artisan cold process goat milk soaps from all natural ingredients and essential oils!  Expect big things this year as we increase our soap production and go national with a separate soap company!  You asked, we expanded.

Variety is the spice of life and at our booth, variety in eggs is the norm. Quail eggs, pheasant eggs, banty eggs (miniature chickens with very big attitudes) and pullet eggs can often be found complimenting the free range chicken eggs in many pastel colors!

We are so grateful to all the wonderful folks at Sweetwater, as we enter our eighth year of participation at the Sunday Market, for providing us this marketing opportunity and making us feel like “part of the family”. We appreciate each and every customer that has walked in our booth and feel truly blessed to know you!  Thank you for your patronage!

20 Shekels Bread, Clearwater/Largo, Florida

Marni Atherton, Owner

20 Shekels is a Tampa Bay bakery founded with the simple idea that nutritious bread should be eaten not because it’s healthy, but because it tastes good.

This is our baby, our passion, our love. We’d like to say it all started with a dream, but alas it was not so. We’re a little too piratey for such things. Instead, it went like this:

“Twenty bucks says you can’t make a bread that’s good for you AND tastes great.”

And in the fervor of a 10-year-old shouting out “CHALLENGE!!”, the game was afoot. Now after many moons, burnt fingers and loud expletives, we’re proud to present what we feel is the healthiest, finest, best tasting bread on the market today.

Made entirely from the highest quality, most nutritious, organic ingredients available.

Enjoy.

Mother Kombucha makes small batch living kombucha, hand crafted from fair trade organic teas, tisanes and natural flavors. Rich with probiotics, beneficial amino acids and antioxidants – our kombuchas make a delicious and healthful alternative to sugary sodas and juices. And because we believe that things that are good for you should also taste great – we create flavors that enhance and compliment the natural tartness of kombucha rather than trying to hide it. The result is crisp, effervescent and invigorating. Brewed in St Petersburg and available throughout the Tampa Bay area, we serve our kombucha on tap for maximum freshness and enjoyment. Embrace the Ferment!

Musashi Yamasaki, beekeeper

Musashi The Bee is located in Safety Harbor, FL. I use an organic method of beekeeping which produces the highest quality Bee Pollen, Beeswax and Honey. I primarily sell Bee Pollen, as this is the most intense health boost the bees provide us! This is the most fresh Bee Pollen possible. It looks, tastes and feels very different than Bee Pollen you have seen in the health food stores.  People suffering from Allergies, Asthma, crohn’s Disease and many other ailments, have reported amazing results taking fresh frozen Bee Pollen.

I also sell many products that are based on my chemical-free beekeeping method, including Happy Skin Honey Lotion, All Natural Lip Balms, a healing salve called Honey Bee Rescue Cream which has Propolis in it, and the most pure and long-lasting Beeswax tealight candles available anywhere!

I do sell honey, when it’s available, but the supply is extremely limited, as I focus primarily on Bee Pollen.

If you want to get your beehive based products from the actual farmer….you have found him!
