Uncommon Shopping in Seaside

Seaside Vegetarian

Unique Mar­kets Near the Beach


Seaside Market FruitFamily-owned and oper­ated for over 20 years, Mod­ica Mar­ket in the Cen­tral Square of Sea­side, Florida offers many gourmet and spe­cialty items.  Mod­ica Mar­ket has a nice selec­tion of fresh pro­duce, exotic mush­rooms, nuts, gourmet chips, crack­ers & snacks, spe­cialty & locally made sauces and dips, hard to find gourmet pas­tas, bou­tique wines and micro brew­ery beers. My favorite brands are well stocked within the mar­ket: Rice Dream, Newman’s Own, Larabar, Bob’s Red Mill, Burt’s Bees, Kiss My Face, and Sev­enth Gen­er­a­tion. Cof­fee is ready at 7 a.m. every morn­ing and they offer break­fast and lunch items, which can be enjoyed out­side the store on their patio or can eas­ily be taken to the nearby beach.

Since you will most likely be on vaca­tion while vis­it­ing Mod­ica Mar­ket, try the fresh-squeezed orange juice mimosa

They also offer an online gro­cery selec­tion and local deliv­ery for a small fee. Mod­ica Mar­ket has been given some unique recog­ni­tion by being seen in the movie The Tru­man Show, high­lighted in CNN’s On the Menu and has been fea­tured in many mag­a­zines such as Vogue, Travel & Leisure and South­ern Liv­ing.

Per­spi­c­a­s­ity: A Beach­side Bazaar is on the walk from the Mod­ica Mar­ket to the beach. This open air retail store is a unique haven of well-made acces­sories, jew­elry and nat­ural fiber made cloth­ing. The col­ors and soft tex­tures of the cloth­ing reflect Seaside’s prin­ci­ples of relaxed liv­ing and the nat­ural, vibrant col­ors of the sur­round­ing area. Pretty sun dresses, light cot­ton tops and beachy hats are a few of the apparel items fea­tured at Per­spi­c­a­s­ity. The prices of the cloth­ing reflect the fash­ion­able, beautifully-unique and well-made mer­chan­dise, on the higher end for my bud­get ($100-$400 an item.)

I did find some unique jew­elry and acces­sory items within my bud­get to pur­chase as gifts and for myself. I pur­chased a horse­shoe shaped lug­gage tag with hand stitch­ing for my horse-loving mother. For my sis­ters, I pur­chased col­or­ful beaded bracelets, which would add a bright splash of color to any out­fit. I wore my bracelet the same day I pur­chased it and received many com­pli­ments through­out the day! Acces­sories were priced $10-$20 an item.
