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.
