BEST PRODUCE/FRUIT STAND 2020
NELSON FAMILY FARMS
875 W. Midway Road, Fort Pierce
Nelson Family Farms is a destination for fresh produce buyers from around the Treasure Coast. It’s a delightful place to go, and it is often the first place named when someone asks where to buy fresh fruit and vegetables.
The large open-air market on West Midway Road, not far from South U.S. 1, almost always has shoppers looking through the baskets, cartons and bins filled with beautiful vegetables and colorful fruits.
Customers praise them for their dependable selections, variety, prices and for that old-fashioned market atmosphere. The Nelson family does have a roof over the market to protect their wares and customers from the hot sun and rain, but it’s set on poles with three sides open to the weather. In the back, there’s a building where cooled produce is kept, and next to it, a room with accessory items such as jams, jellies, honey and more.
The business is more than 70 years old and still run by the Nelson family. They make a point of providing good customer service and grading and stocking their produce all day every day.
Their customers like it that way.
