The Thieves Market Anna Maria Island is for the kids! Are ye looking for somewhere to spend your plundered gold doubloons? Head on down to the Thieves Market. It’s sponsored by some of the most ruthless pirates this side of the Gulf of Mexico.
These scurvy dogs founded their organization in 1971 as a youth outreach program, and have been a staple of Anna Maria Island life ever since. The thieves market is a a great fundraiser. It keeps these wonderful people doing all the great things they do for the community. There is our yearly 4th of July parade, multiple youth scholarships, Christmas on Anna Maria Island, the Christmas parade and more.
