On Tuesday there is a Farmerâ€™s Market in the Waterfront District of Gulfport. Iâ€™ve loved this place ever since Jakeâ€™s parents introduced us to this place a few years ago (during one of our wintery visits). With all thatâ€™s been happening with our new home and business, weâ€™ve been forgetting to get out and enjoy ourselves once in a while. Well at the beginning of this week I marked my calendar and Jake and I took off for Gulfport. Itâ€™s a beautiful place to walk around, with plenty of shade on the sidewalks.
There werenâ€™t quite as many kiosks as we saw at the Saturday Morning Market in St. Petersburg, but it was less crowded and more relaxed which made for a very pleasant experience.
We wound up buying a loaf of multi-grain bread from a stand set up by Lindaâ€™s Bakery. The bread was freshly baked by Linda in the morning and from the weight of the loaf I have a feeling it will be nice and hearty, and I canâ€™t wait to give it a try tonight.
Whenever we go to Gulfport I like to visit a cafe called T and Me, which is tucked away in a little alcove called the Art Village Courtyard. We like it a lot because of the friendly service and a better than average vegetarian selection on their menu. And it doesnâ€™t hurt that their prices are super reasonable and they have a huge selection of Teas. This afternoon I ordered the “Savory Tiffany Tart” and Jake got the Breakfast Sandwich, they were both so yummy — the Tiffany Tart has become my new favorite.
The Waterfront District is so beautiful that I canâ€™t help but fantasize about one day opening a studio in one of the buildings there and living in an apartment up above it. Of course I love the home I live in now, but to be surrounded by so much positive energy everyday must be wonderful.
