May 16, 2014 by SoWal Staff

The Raw & Juicy Farmers Market is now open every Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon at the Market Shops at Sandestin. The new market has many of the same local, organic and natural food producers as the popular and long-running Seaside Farmers Market. 

Raw & Juicy is a juice bar and organic food favorite in one of the original airstreams on Scenic 30A in Seaside. Owner and Seaside Farmers Market founder Jennifer Kuntz said, “Our vendors are thrilled to be at a second weekend venue serving both permanent residents and visitors to Sandestin’s beautiful resort and the surrounding areas of Destin, Bluewater Bay and Niceville. We opened the new market with approximately ten quality vendors, all farmers and artisan food makers; we anticipate more will join.  We are a local food producers market and require all vendors to use beach conscious sustainable packaging and bags for their products. There’s something special about the experience of getting to know the people who grow and produce your food.”
