Last minute shoppers go local at Ruskin Market
Hundreds of people turned out for the South Shore Market held on Sunday looking for last minute gifts — for others and themselves. The market, held monthly near the corner of U.S. Highway 41 and Shell Point Road, included more than 40 local vendors with offerings ranging from fresh, local produce to handmade jewelry. Among those vendors, Farmer Pete offered farm fresh produce, Pam Talbot was selling “wine lights” — wine bottles beautifully enhanced with Christmas lights, while around the corner Maria offered various decorations with a definite Florida theme — the perfect gift for friends and relatives suffering through a cold winter up north. Although Christmas will be over, it’s not too late — the Sunday market will be back next month. Oh, and don’t miss the Hungarian Beigli. The pastry is like a slice of freshly made heaven.
