From cold brew coffee and house-made pimento cheese to fine wines and local meats and cheeses, The Market at Stewart’s is now open and ready to serve the community.

The market is founded by husband-and-wife duo, Jeff and Genie McNally, owners of The Floridian.

“We took over the space from a longstanding St. Augustine business, Stewart’s Market, which started as a thatched roof, tiki hut-style produce stand in the mid-1970s,” Jeff said. “Our mission is to continue as a small, community market while supporting local farmers and purveyors.”

The Market at Stewart’s features La Floridita Kitchen, a prepared foods counter manned by co-owners and husband-and-wife team, Gaston Buschiazzo and Amy Tarmey.

Offerings include house-made hummus, chia pudding parfait, pasta salad, empanadas, smoked fish dip, quinoa salad and baked goods like fresh pop tarts and even homemade donut holes. The grocery also hosts a butcher counter and fresh seafood case with hand cut bacon, datil sausage, Angus beef and pork from CartWheel Ranch as well as Cedar Key Clams and Mayport Shrimp.

The Market at Stewart’s will host a grand opening from 7 to 9 p.m. Aug. 29 at 311 Anastasia Blvd. with complimentary beer, wine and hor d’oeuvres while they last. The event is free and open to the public.

Regular business hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
