Last year, nearly 500 homes participated in the annual garage sale. To register, visit or pay in person at the Osprey Club.

Spring is in the air and FishHawk Ranch residents have two events to look forward to as a way ring in the season.
Starting with the FishHawk Ranch Farmers Market, now entering its second year, residents can sample fresh produce, seasonal fresh seafood, honey, pickles, cheese, nuts, homemade jams, jellies and salsa in addition to merchandise such as peace T-shirts and other designs, body soaps, soy candles, tropical plants, dog grooming products and more. 
According to Jennifer Carle, the event coordinator for FishHawk Ranch, the Farmers Market has been going, “Great!  We plan to continue the market all year round.”
The FishHawk Ranch Farmers Market is held the first Sunday of every month from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
For more information, Newland Communities has a Facebook page. Information is posted about upcoming events on there. You can find it at
“The biggest draw is the fresh produce,” Carle said.
The second event residents have to look forward to is the semi-annual FishHawk Ranch HOA Garage Sale, which will be held this year on Saturday, April 9.
This event encourages residents to do some spring cleaning.
“Residents love to clean out their houses and the fact that they can make a few dollars while doing so – makes spring cleaning a fun activity,” Carle said. “Many residents have brand new items, or items that are in excellent condition, which makes selling an easy task.”
The cost to register for the garage sale is $5 per driveway. To register, residents can do so in-person at the Osprey Club (cash or check only), or by credit card via PayPal on
Although there is no late fee, the last day to register is Friday, April 8 at 5 p.m. at the Osprey Club, located at 5721 Osprey Ridge Dr. in Lithia.
Last year, nearly 500 houses registered for the event. As for what items you can find at the garage sale, “There is such a variety,” Carle exclaimed. “Some of the major items include furniture, baby items, exercise equipment, lawn tools, toys, clothing and more.”
