Introducing perhaps one of the most unique of all our skilled artisan vendors… Gary hand carves and shapes each of his Native American flutes into a magnificent musical instrument, not to mention a lovely conversation piece. His “flute-inspired” carved walking canes are an additional offering for those who may not be so musically inclined. Hearing the soothing tones of Gajon Flutes may inspire you to your own heights of creativity, so join us at the Stuart Green Market on Sundays to sample the melodies!
While many Americans may not be familiar with kombucha, this product has been prepared and served for hundreds of years in Asian countries. This fermented tea is touted for its beneficial properties in aiding digestion, cleansing the liver, and stimulating the immune system in the body. Think all the benefits of yogurt -without the dairy! We are fortunate enough to host Tha Best Kombucha II weekly at the Stuart Green Market. Their kombucha, formulated with all organic teas and essential oils, is unique in it is fermented in oak barrels. The “scoby” or Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeasts, which make this drink what it is, is grown naturally for two weeks, allowing the special fermentation process to fortify these delicious offerings. With flavors such as Blissful Berry, Winter Spice, Mandarin Ginger, Orange Mango and Toasty Oak, you will be sure to find a taste that your body will THANK YOU for!

Every piece is hand made, hand signed and lovingly perfected – you will be proud to hand down this jewelry to future generations! Custom orders welcome… If you can dream it, Lulu can create it.
Goat milk, goat cheeses, goat soap, chevre, kefir, beautiful-happy-hen-eggs! These are just some of the wonderful offerings from our fine local farm of Circle Bar C Dairy Goats.

This local family farm offers Stuart the only source for goat milk products in our area. Proud and hard-working, please stop by to visit Mike or Jane to hear all about their adventures in goating!!
VENDOR OF THE WEEK: Should you be scouting for some unique pieces for decorating your coastal home, “IT’S A SHORE THING” may have just what you are looking for! Cast iron hooks, for use inside or out, are anything but common: bonefish, anchors, and sand dollars are just a few of the options available. A line of coastal signs are sure to bring a smile and custom orders are always accepted. Just ask for Patty the Mermaid Lady…
The Stuart Green Market is not just for local produce – our community artisans are here to amaze and proudly display their talents. Come for a Sunday visit…
Perhaps a birthday or a wedding or a favorite holiday…Pick any day and it will be a treat to celebrate it with the artistry of “Candace the Cook”. As a vendor at the Stuart Green Market, we have all had the chance to sample the Best of the Best: maybe it was chocolate (of course, but the gluten free version is “to die for”!), or vanilla or key lime, maybe red velvet, carrot, peanut butter, or raspberry. Dream your favorite cake or cupcake variety and Candace can create a confection to celebrate any event.
What at first appears to be a festive holiday staple (perfectly done just like mom’s) is ACTUALLY 100% cake and icing. How’s that for optical illusions? Come visit us on Sundays for more treats for your sweets!
