In the 1970’s, Siesta Key Village was a groovy, laid-back place to meet friends and support local businesses. Everybody mixed in places like The Mews and Village Hardware, Suprex, Robenas and The Buttery. Beachside shops like Foxy Lady, Oceanside Surf Shop and Ocean Boulevard Sailboarding, and The Wildflower had fresh, healthy vegetarian food.

The main theme centers around local, organic, agriculture and awareness. Many of our vendors offer vital information about local resources and create awareness in natural health and the environment. We hope you enjoy the Market on Sunday mornings throughout the year.

Best Florida Locally Sourced and Freshly Made Jams and Jellies

Best Florida Locally Sourced Freshly Made Jams and Jellies are hands down made by Meli Gusto. Melissa the founder and owner of Meli Gusto came to Florida from a small suburb of Paris, France.

She began working in a farmers market at the young age of 15 while also attending school for tourism. After school, her passion for travel and food brought her around the world where she discovered the eclectic flavor profiles that influence her unique jams.

During her travels to Asia, she learned how different types of food affect your body and health and how to eat with a purpose.

For this reason, Melissa’s creations are all natural, preservatives free, gluten free and she offers many vegan options.

When Melissa arrived in the US and began making her own jams and spreads for her friends, they couldn’t get enough!

She knew that she wanted to share her passion with a wider audience.

Because Melissa’s recipes are influenced by her travels, the flavors are wildly different than the standard jams you will find in your local grocery store. They are named for the cities that inspired them. They range from a sweet, tropical pineapple coconut to a spicy pear habanero to a savory jalapeños bell pepper.

All ingredients are locally sourced and freshly made. Flavors change with the season and availability so you can always expect something new. With the success of her jams, Melissa decided to branch out into others spreads and authentic Mexican salsa.

Her energy balls will give you an all natural boost without any added sugar. They are a smart and delicious snack for an active life style.

Every Sunday Meli Gusto has a booth at the Siesta Key Farmers Market located on the beautiful barrier island of Siesta Key, Florida. The market hours are 9am to 1pm at 5104 Ocean Blvd in the Village of Siesta Key, Florida.
