Trunk Town Market returns as part of pumpkin patch event

Trunk Town Market took a break through the summer and is now scheduled to return this weekend as part of a Vintage Fair and Pumpkin Patch event.

The outdoor event, presented by the Normandy Fountain Business Association, is set for 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021, at Normandy Fountain, 7802 Rue Vendome, Miami Beach.

In addition to a vendors market, visitors can enjoy being outdoors and surrounded by pumpkins! A pumpkin giveaway is expected to take place from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., but families had to register in advance – and all slots have been filled, according to the event website

Past Trunk Town markets have been at Virginia Key Park and included a live auction, jazz performance, food trucks, and more. Trunk Town Markets typically feature items from local family merchants as well as professional vendors – all selling their inventory from the trunk of their cars.

The events are billed as “COVID-19 safe” because they are outdoors and have protocols in place. Organizers warn that event details can change at any time and ask that patrons check the official website for safety protocols. You can also visit the Facebook page here
