Bordering the area of St. Petersburg, Gulfport is a cute and quaint town off the beaten path. Located right on the water and complete with restaurants dishing out homemade cuisine, boutiques, art galleries, ice cream shops, and more, Gulfport is a great date idea. In addition to all the shops and restaurants Gulfport has to offer, every Tuesday morning the town hosts the weekly Gulfport Tuesday Fresh Market.
The Market is full of fresh produce, flowers, tasty food, and some of the friendliest people you’ll meet in the Tampa Bay area.
Not to mention, as The Market is located in Gulfport’s Historic Waterfront District, the view of the beautiful blue waters cannot be beat.
