On Thursday, October 29 2015 after 66 years in business, the Seagrove Village Market Cafe closed its doors at their current location. Since 1949, the market has been a cornerstone landmark in Seagrove Beach, Florida.
Originally opened by local developer C. H. McGee back in 1949, the market initially served as a place for locals and visitors to get bare necessities while at the beach. At one point in the very early days, they had a gas pump and the only local pay phone. A small cafe was eventually added in the rear of the market. In 1999, the market was purchased by 30A locals, George & Ann Hartley who proceeded to develop the business into a popular eatery.
