FORT MYERS, FL (May 17, 2024)As temperatures soar this summer, the Alliance for the Arts (AFTA) presents a summer themed solution to beat the heat. On June 12 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m., AFTA will host an indoor mango-themed Night Market in place of the June monthly Wednesday market. 

This market will focus on the summer fruit and feature mango drinks and treats including mango margaritas, Mango Cart beer and will offer a unique blend of tropical delights as well as local vendors, all indoors in our main gallery. The Greater Pine Island Chamber of Commerce will be on hand to share information on Pine Island’s upcoming Mango Mania fruit fair as well as displaying the t-shirt and fan contest designs. 

Local author, Annabelle Tometich, will be present for a signing of her book The Mango Tree: A Memoir of Fruit, Florida, and Felony. FruitScapes Fruit Tree Nursery & Tropical Fruit Market, based in Bokeelia, will have mango and other fruit trees for sale and a display of information about the diverse varieties of mangoes they grow. 

Mango Night Market will showcase a diverse selection of local artisans, crafters and small businesses. From handmade jewelry to unique artwork, attendees will be able to shop one-of-a-kind, handmade finds as they explore the marketplace. Jorge Corral will be in the Bloom & Wallace Digital Arts Lab giving demonstrations and a free all-ages art project will be taking place in our classroom.
