As you know the Big Top flea market is under rezoning for residential,retail and more restaurants. As a vendor for over 18 years I've made a small business and many friends which we all call family , a community made of many small businesses. The snowbirds enjoy coming here year after year and many of our locals don't want to see Big Top disappear. We have customers coming to our market from as far as Orlando,Canada, Zephrhills and even St. Pete Fl. So why shut down the one place folks Love coming to?

Let's make this clear folks. It's a quiet neighborhood with an already super busy street that cannot hold more traffic if more buildings are allowed to be built. With new structures such as residential , restaurants or retail say like another Wal-Mart creates more possibilities for heavy crime, much more traffic. If you have a child going to the school adjacent to Big Top you already are standing in a traffic line to drop off or pick up your child from school. Do you want to be in a longer line because new homes or high rise apartments coming into our community? I sure don't. 

I have many repeat customers who rely on my products as well as other vendors at the market. We all have something to lose. Our incomes for one. We don't have another place to relocate our established small businesses. There isn't another market like Big Top in the local area. The closest is in Pinellas County. I live in Lakeland and travel 45 minutes to Big Top and will continue as long as I can. 

  • So please sign our petition to stop the rezoning process of the property in which BIG TOP stands on.
