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.

January should provide anglers with lots of exciting action this year. Fishing in deeper water will provide you with better results on most days. Working your lures and baits much slower will also give you a better chance at success. Fish tend to become lethargic in cold water and are slow in moving to strike at lures. Finding water that is a couple of degrees warmer than the surrounding area can also give you an edge on finding fish. Water temperatures have been mild so far.

According to Captain Charlie, Redfish can be found around docks and sitting on the flats on warm, sunny days. Try a DOA shrimp around mangroves and docks for reds. The trout bite has greatly improved this past year and it should continue to get better. Snook season is closed for now and it will continue to be catch and release. Bridges, docks and the inlets will be the best opportunities to catch snook this month.

Bridges will continue to produce sheepshead, black drum, croakers, sand perch and bluefish. Most of the anglers on the catwalks prefer live or frozen shrimp for these fish. The drum and sheepshead have once again arrived early, and action has already been steady for these tasty fish. The inlet and turning basin will be full of bluefish, jacks and mackerel this month. Live or dead bait on a jig head will give you plenty of action along with silver spoons or shiny lures. Around seawalls, channel edges or deeper structure you can find grouper for catch and release action in January. Pompano fishing will depend on water temperatures for their location, but they will be in the area throughout the winter. Surf anglers will be targeting these fish on days when the beach is fishable. Enjoy fishing in January on the Treasure Coast!

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 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.”
