This is an opportunity to show your support of our troops and help FSO collect items and raise funds to continue the mission of sending monthly "We Care" packages full of that "little bit of home" to our United States servicemen and servicewomen serving overseas, to assure that they are not forgotten.

"We are so appreciative to FLORIDA MARINE FLEA MARKET & SEAFOOD FESTIVAL for continuing their partnership with FSO in support of our troops. It is because of our troops that we can enjoy the luxuries of our freedom to participate in such fun-filled events with great entertainment, great food and great fun," says Lynelle Zelnar, Executive Director and Founder of Forgotten Soldiers Outreach, Inc.(FSO)

The Marine Flea Market will provide an outlet for the marine industry and private individuals to sell overstocked, new and used marine equipment at a fraction of the original retail cost. Many boaters, fishermen and divers will find valuable items for their maritime lifestyle at bargain prices and the best value for their dollar. The Florida Marine Flea Market and Seafood Festival Palm Beach will be the answer for buyers and sellers alike. Vendors will offer a wide variety of items including fishing rods, reels, lures and lines, antique collectibles and maps, teak furniture, tournament gear, nautical art, crafts and jewelry, marine artifacts, boating apparel, taxidermy and fish reproductions, diving equipment, marine accessories and parts and floating docks. Several boat dealers will also be displaying and selling new and used boats. The event also features healthy delicious seafood. Savor all the traditional side dishes, beverages, desserts and comfort foods as well. To work off that stuffed feeling, you can browse and shop the expanded nautical and maritime vendor booths. Local Florida bands will provide three days of live, continuous music as visitors search for bargains and enjoy healthy delicious seafood.
