When looking for quality local organic products in the area, our only options have been to shop at the local farmers markets. This area has been severely lacking any type of store to offer these products, so in steps the Fort Pierce Traders Market hoping to fill that void.
Located conveniently in downtown Fort Pierce on Orange Ave and South Indian River Dr is Chef Daniel Cedeño latest business venture. You may know him previously from his restaurant, Deli~cious that was also located in downtown Fort Pierce. He along with a few partners were looking for a location to open their store, and when this place became available, they jumped on it right away. They saw the potential with the location because of the foot traffic and plenty of parking near by. The building they occupy was built back in the 1940’s and was originally a bank. When they took ownership, the space had been partially renovated for another grocery store project, but it was never completed. This gave them a little head start on their project. While they did keep a few coolers and tables, they brought in their own equipment to personalize the space and make it their own.
Fort Pierce Traders Market believes in supporting as many local vendors they can, so they work with local farmers and businesses to carry their products in the store. You can find eggs, kombucha, and cider from Brown Family Farm, The Bug Juice mosquito repellent, and Christina’s Cleaning Solutions too! They will continue to add more local products in the near future.
Now let’s dive right in and see what this place has to offer and what I had to eat!
