Images from Last Year's successful market
Now entering its 8th year, The Market continues St. Peter’s outreach tradition of volunteering time, talent and treasure, as over 120 women and men work together make The Market a success. We firmly believe that a better future for all depends on providing vulnerable Savannah children with safe environments and opportunities to maximize their abilities.
Each year, twenty handpicked national vendors are selected to display and sell their boutique goods for sale including stylish and unique clothing and accessories for women, men and children, unusual home decorative and garden accessories, linens, and classic and contemporary jewelry, for this two-and-a-half-day event. The Market also includes a vibrant spring plant sale and a delicious luncheon made and served by our volunteers. Over the past five years, The Market has grown in credibility with national vendors and in popularity and with over 800 women and men attending and shopping annually.
The Market donates all net proceeds from door admissions, plant sales, the luncheon, sponsor donations and a 15 percent of vendor sale proceeds to the charities. Since 2012, The Market has donated $225,000 to at-risk children’s charities in Savannah. Read how last year's recipients responded:
