The Anna Maria Island Coquina Beach Market!

The Coquina Beach Market on Anna Maria Island takes place two days a week. From 10am – 4pm every Sunday in November – July, and from 10am – 4pm  every Wednesday in December – May. The market is a great place to find island treasures. From fresh produce, arts and crafts, to jewelry and apparel and everything in between!
Remember! Tough this market is a beach market, it is still wheelchair and stroller accessibly. Also, there are NO pets allowed in Coquina Park.

Ride the free Anna Maria trolley to Coquina Beach or there is plenty of free parking. Be sure to grab a cold refreshment from the Coquina Café located right by the market. They serve breakfast and lunch daily and now have beer and wine for sale.  Also, you can enjoy the beautiful white sandy beaches which are just a stroll from the market! You won’t want to miss this fun outdoor market!
