Fort Pierce Farmers Market And Stuart Green Market Bring Farm-Fresh Offerings To Treasure Coast
Green markets from West Palm Beach to Fort Pierce are sprouting as fast as the produce each of them sells. Thanks to local farmers, sustainably grown crops are feeding the need for crisp, flavorful fruits and vegetables. Shoppers can purchase artisanal breads, cheeses and dips, organic honey, specialty foods and a variety of handmade goods.

The lively waterfront scene features more than 70 vendors, lots of free samples and live music. It’s a great source for coffees and teas, flowers, plants, herbs and spices.
