ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — As we get closer to the Spring 2020 opening, the long-awaited St. Pete Pier had an exciting announcement Tuesday.
The project announced its first list of vendors that will be in the Pier Marketplace through the city’s website. This is the first peek of what residents and visitors can expect at the pier.
The city’s website said the businesses announced will have short-term leases, leaving the option for new businesses to become part of the rotation to the attraction.
Mayor Rick Kriseman is quoted on the website, "These vendors will offer an exciting variety of local goods and services to the visitors of the St. Pete Pier and help to showcase what makes St. Pete so special. The Pier Marketplace will be as dynamic as the Pier District itself and reflect the entrepreneurial spirit of the Sunshine City.”
