Merchants of Seaside

30A South Walton Seaside Shopping Merchants of Seaside

Shopping in Seaside, Florida

You probably won’t see Truman walking around this idyllic white picket fence village, but you’ll always find a plethora of picture-perfect shops, restaurants and art galleries in South Walton’s famous Seaside.

After a mimosa breakfast at Great Southern Cafe, grab a cup of free-trade coffee at the locally-owned Amavida before diving headfirst into the shops of Seaside (including Perspicacity’s colorful open-air market).

Grab some lunch — or perhaps a healthy smoothie — at one of Seaside’s famous Airstream food trailers. As the sun heats up, grab a good novel from Sundog Books, and then stake out a shady spot in Ruskin Place among the half-dozen art galleries and twisting oaks. Or, spend a creative afternoon with the kids getting Fired-Up, then let them make a fashion statement at Snap Tweens.

Later, drop into Modica Market and pack your picnic basket for that night’s free outdoor concert, or grab your tickets for a performance at Seaside’s fabulous Repertory Theatre (“The REP”). Wrap up the night toasting another successful sunset at Bud and Alley’s, a Seaside institution, or in one of Seaside’s many other great restaurants and wine bars.
