Free Family Activities Tampa | Farmers Market

The lovely Tracy from over at Having Fun Saving just sent me her Frugal Family Fun tip of the week and I LOVE IT!  How many of you have ever been to the Farmer’s Market.  I have driven by, but haven’t been. Every Sunday after church we would drive by the Farmer’s Market in Downtown Tarpon Springs and it looked like so much fun!  I’ve also been by the Tampa Farmers Market in Ybor, but never stopped to really look. They had live music and lots of fresh vegetables and produce for what I’ve heard are amazing prices!   I think I may need to make a trip there this weekend with my family!

Head over and check out Tracy’s Frugal Family Fun post for some other great places and ways to find a Farmer’s Market in Your area!

Here’s a tip, start bartering on price for produce about 20 minutes before the market closes for some great prices and bargains! :-)

FREE Family Events: Frugal Family Fun for Less

Are you looking for some Free Family Activities? My friend, Tracy, over at Having Fun Saving, has a wonderful list of Frugal Family events and activities that are free!  This week, her list includes a great Passport to Imagination event that will help your children discover different countries around the world!  Many of you know that I grew up on a ship as a missionary.  Needless to say I’ve seen much of the world and really want to my children to learn as much as they can about other countries to broaden their perspectives on life.  Although it may not be traveling to the actual countries, it’s still exposing them to the idea of other cultures…AND IT’S FREE!!! Woohooot!!!

Check out these Great FREE Family Events

Tracy has several other fun and free family activities, including a fun FREE Kung Fu Panda Activity that you’ll want to check out if your kiddos are fans of that!
