St. Pete Pier announced the initial vendors they have selected with 10 tents and 7 stalls. The vendors will offer handmade jewelry, gormet popcorn, T-shirts, clothing, shoes, hand cream, wood art, specialty sauces and a variety of touristy items. The city still has one big question to answer and that is whether or not to allow visitors to carry alcohol onto the pier while they walk around, shop and take in the view. The city will meet Thursday to discuss the alcohol issue.


This has been such a long process, here’s what the St. Pete Pier will look like when it opens in the Spring of 2020.
