Farmers’ markets have taken off in the past couple of years, and it’s easy to see why. The Treasure Coast’s tropical climate is perfect for fruits to grow, makes delicious beef and eggs, and gives everyone a good excuse to get outside and get together. After all, who could turn down a day that starts with watching the river go by as you eat breakfast, buying some of the freshest produce from local farmers and dancing along to live music?

Fort Pierce Farmer’s Market

We’d argue that although there are many amazing markets out there, none of them could come close to the Downtown Fort Pierce Farmers’ Market. There’s so much to check out here, and so much of it has been grown, raised or made right in here South Florida. One such example is the dips at Dani’s Healthy Organic Fun Food. Everything on the table is delicious, from the crackers to the amazing Lemon-y Artichoke Dip, and Dani himself made everything. Make sure to stop and grab a box of cinnamon and sugar sprinkled donuts from Cider Doughnuts. They’re freshly made right in front of you, and make for the perfect snack! If you want a gift to send to family up north that’s authentically Florida, grab them a box of oranges from Al’s Family Farms. Locally grown right in South Florida, you won’t find sweeter citrus anywhere else.

Stuart Green Market

The Stuart Green Market started out in the 90s by people whose dream it was to bring locally grown produce and goods to the people of Stuart. Roughly 30 years later, that dream is still alive, thanks to the vendors who show up every Sunday and the buyers who come to enjoy live music, shopping, and great food by the waterfront. No one can resist a salty treat from Sea Turtle Concessions, which serves up hot dogs and ice-cold drinks every Sunday at the market! Grab some produce from Whole Plant Food, or wooden bowls from Otton Wood making. Walk down the waterfront a little ways, and you’ll come across PJ Ranch, known for their sweet syrups! Whether you’re looking for maple syrup, mangrove honey from Florida mangroves, or sorghum, they have it all of the stickiest, sweetest stuff here.

When you’re purchasing fruit or honey from a farmer’s market, you’re getting more than just produce. You’re getting something that’s authentically Florida. Most folks think that that’s hard to find these days, but it turns out that it’s closer than you think. And Harbour Ridge is in the heart of it all.

Located just a short way from each of these farmer’s markets on the Treasure Coast, Harbour Ridge embraces the area’s authenticity in so many ways.

Don’t be fooled that summer is ending; September is one of the best times of Florida’s fishing season. The waters aren’t as crowed with boats and are teeming with fish. Don’t be surprised to hear of people landing Snook and Tarpon as well as Wahoo, Dolphin and Sailfish. Residents and members at Harbour Ridge can be out in the Atlantic in no time thanks to their on-site marina. But don’t get caught off guard yourself – read ahead to learn about this month’s fishing prediction.

September in South Florida means one thing: Dolphin! The golden-headed fish has been reported all over in the local waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Head out the inlet to get in on the action as soon as you can. A tip: you can find these fish near weed lines, but don’t spend all day flipping over every pile of seaweed that you find floating. Keep an eye out for ones that have bubbles near them, then cast there and troll.

Not to be out shadowed, September might even have some leftover Wahoo from the earlier summer season. And don’t forget, Stuart is the Sailfish Capital of the World. The bite here is starting to pick up and anglers are reporting some good action – especially in the mornings.

This is also a great time to catch cobia. Another local tip: look for rays up on the surface or with your bottom machine. They almost always come with cobia underneath their wings. If you can find the rays, you have a good shot at cobia.

Start your day on the water at first light trolling for the sport fish. Once the sun is higher in the sky, switch to bottom fishing the local reefs for Grouper or Snapper. There are a few artificial reefs created by Martin County’s Artificial Reef Program just off of the St. Lucie Inlet that provide habitat for these species. They make great fishing grounds.

Looking for beach fishing? Head out to find Tarpon rolling on the shorelines. The best time for Tarpon is in the morning or in the evening. Stop by the Snook Nook, the local bait and tackle shop, on your way out to the beach to pick up anything you might need. A spinning reel will do the trick.

The weather forecast is looking great for fishing, as well. The late summer atmosphere, along with the Atlantic Ridge Axis shifting from Central to South Florida means that the air and water temperatures are less likely to produce storms. Enjoy a few weeks of warm blue waters and mostly sunny blue skies.
The fishing and the weather make it great to spend the time outdoors. One of the best possible places to cast is near Harbour Ridge – located on the North Fork of the St. Lucie River. The lifestyle of this private community is centered around the water and second to none.

If you are searching for the big game and your personal best catch, then Florida’s Treasure Coast is your ideal fishing location. Loaded with massive grouper, snook, snapper, wahoo and sailfish, the crystal blue waters off the shore of the Treasure Coast are just waiting for your next adventure. We have narrowed down a few of the area’s tops spots to guarantee your next cast is your biggest and best yet:

4. Sailfish Point
The North side of the Saint Lucie Inlet is an area known as Sailfish Point. The Sailfish Point area provides an excellent fishing spot, primarily for Snook between the months of April and September. Use caution when boating in this area as it’s a maze of shallows that can ground your boat in the blink of an eye but when you find that sweet spot, the fish will come biting in droves.

3. Hells Gate
The name is much more intimidating than the location. It’s actually very peaceful. Getting there is also fairly easy. As you round the Southernmost tip of Sewalls point, and start heading North up the Saint Lucie River, the narrowest point (about 1/2 a mile North West of the point) is an area known as Hells Gate. It provides some excellent year round fishing. While you’ll find the docks an excellent place for Snook year round, the Channel side provides a solid fishery for Ladyfish and Bluefish from December to March.

2. Bessie Cove
Just South of the Stuart Causeway, on the East Side of the River, you’ll find the Bessie Cove area. All along the area is a large grass flats area, as well as a large number of docks. The grass flat, as well as the other flats areas in the river, is a good spot for catching some Seatrout from November to April, while the docks can be a good place to find Redfish and Snook. The Redfish bite is good from November to March, while the Snook bite is best between April to October.

1. Harbour Ridge
Topping the list is Harbour Ridge This unique community located on the wide water of the North Fork of the St. Lucie River is a local fishing haven. The estuary shoreline is a haven for anglers, as the river is teeming with redfish, snook, tarpon and trout. Of course, deep sea sportsmen cherish the open ocean and the waters off Stuart, known as the “Sailfish Capital of the World.”

Unique to this list, and many other communities in the area, Harbour Ridge boasts its very own marina, allowing residents to easily access their boat and the local waterways. Harbour Ridge is home to three private marinas with a combined 98 slips, ranging in size from 24 to 60 feet. The Marina’s friendly and knowledgeable staff is on hand to guide and the active yachting and sailing neighbors will delight you with parties, events and stories of “the one that got away.”

Constantly celebrating with neighbors, residents of the Treasure Coast flock to Stuart for live music, big game fishing, fresh produce, delicious bites, and boutique shopping. Stuart has it all, only question is, what is your first stop?

 What’s on Osceola?

Spritz City Bistro dishes out flatbreads and crostini’s while The Gafford or Black Marlin offer up the fresh seafood and other local favorites.

 Sundays in Stuart

Although every day is great day to visit Stuart, Sunday’s seem to be the most popular. The town comes alive around 9 a.m. as vendors fill the public parking lot for the Farmers Market. Everything from wooden frames and tomatoes to food trucks and flowers. This Farmers Market has it all. Then at 1 p.m. local bands rock the Riverwalk, with tunes from a variety of genres and eras. After the amps are packed away, head across the railroad tracks for the best “Sunday Funday” on the Treasure Coast as the tunes keep on rocking and rolling at Sailors Return. Be aware however, Sunday’s in Stuart have been known to cause sore feet and tired legs from all that dancing!

 Art Shows, Festivals a Plenty

There always seems to be a local art show or festival taking place in Downtown Stuart. This weekend, the town will be celebrating the 30th annual Dancing in the Streets Festival. The street party starts on Saturday at 3 p.m. and goes til midnight. Festival goers will enjoy music from more than 20 bands on four street stages and at the Lyric Theatre.

General admission tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the gate and can be purchased online at www.stuartdancininthestreets.com or www.lyrictheatre.com or in person at the following downtown Stuart locations: Earthtones, Kilwin’s Chocolates & Ice Cream, Terra Fermata, Seacoast Bank and the Lyric Theatre box office.

There’s no doubt Downtown Stuart packs in the fun but there isn’t a better feeling than retreating home to kick your feet up and relax after a day of dancing and shopping with neighbors. Harbour Ridge, a waterfront community located just mere minutes from Stuarts town center, provides its residents with the everyday luxuries of the South Florida Lifestyle.
