The Recycled Wedding Market is unlike any event currently in Tallahassee - it is a flea market, of sorts, for all things wedding and event related!
If you are recently engaged, soon-to-be married, or just like putting on a good party, the Recycled Wedding Market is for you! Experience the thrill of the hunt - what could be better than finding wedding decor, tablecloths, vases - and maybe even a wedding dress - all without having to pay retail prices! You'll be getting a great deal while reducing the environmental impact of your wedding!
We have also curated a select group of professional wedding vendors and wedding-related artisans who will have unique items to sell and who can share their products and services with you - so its a one-stop wedding planning shop!
Tickets are $3 if purchased online before January 15th and $5 if purchased online after January 15th.
Tickets may also be purchased at the door for $5 (plus two cans of food for Second Harvest) or $10 with no cans. Cash only at the door.
**A limited number of Early Bird tickets are available for those who want to get first dibs on the best treasures! Early Bird ticket holders will get early access at 11:00 am - a full hour before the market opens for general admission. Early Bird tickets can be purchased online only for $10 each. Limited to 100 Early Bird tickets.
The Recycled Wedding Market is provided as a joint effort by the Aveda Institute, Social Catering and Events, and Green Party Events - all of whom are committed to reducing the environmental impact of Tallahassee weddings. The event is a fundraiser for Sustainable Tallahassee, which will receive all proceeds from the event.

Stem cells have been hailed as the ultimate treatment for a wide variety of diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. But what is the current state of the science? Is the promise real? Is it hype? This presentation will feature the different types of stem cells and trials currently underway. Examine newly published data and explore the possible use of adult stem cells to treat traumatic brain injury.
