Shopping & Downtown

Shopping / Downtown Stuart
While the natural beauty of the area keeps visitors and residents busy outdoors, there's always time for a leisurely stroll through the mall, a boutique to find a special gift for someone or shopping for household items for yourself. Martin County's many shows and malls offer outstanding merchandise for all your needs. From a regional mall to specialty shops with a casual elegance. It's easy to browse away an afternoon.

Downtown Stuart is the setting of the city's historic district, the original village settled by the first visitors to Martin County. Shops range from antiques and collectibles, objects d'art, and wearable art, to fine eating establishments and gift items. A nearby waterfront walkway allow visitors to "Enjoy our Good Nature" while enjoying the hospitality of our shopkeepers.Downtown Stuart

Downtown Stuart
Step back in time to a Stuart of yesteryear when the Post Office Arcade was the gathering place for local residents. Stroll along Osceola and Flagler Streets and browse in the shops. Stop for a bite at an outdoor café. Enter the lobby of the Lyric Theatre and reminisce about the many performers who've appeared on stage.
It may be a scene from yesteryear in your mind, but it's real today in a renovated, revitalized downtown Stuart. It's all thanks to Stuart Main Street, the City of Stuart and the downtown merchants.

With soft pink sidewalks cushioning your every step, shoppers and business clients can enjoy the cozy atmosphere created by the improvements. Victorian style lampposts dot the landscape every few feet. Trees and shrubs along the Florida East Coast Railway and the sidewalks breakup any indication that concrete and asphalt exist.

The improvements have brought a variety of new shops and shop owners. Antiques and collectibles, wearable art, crafts and stained glass are just a mention of the many specialty boutiques in the three-block area. Restaurants, from fine dining to friendly pubs and pet-friendly outdoor cafés, tempt tired shoppers or those seeking an evening on the town. Several lawyers, engineers and accountants opted for a downtown location because of the proximity to the Martin County Courthouse.

The renovation of the historic 1937 Martin County Courthouse and the construction of an outdoor bandstand contribute to the overall atmosphere.

In addition, the City of Stuart built a Riverwalk along the banks of the St. Lucie River and there is a boat dock for mariners who wish to tie up on the river while shopping or dining.

Popular street dances, arts and crafts festivals, the annual Christmas parade, fireworks displays and the celebration of Stuart's 100th birthday are bringing area residents by the thousands to the downtown area.

The improvements kicked off years ago when a half million dollar Main Street grant was obtained for the downtown area. An 18-block area east and west of the Florida East Coast Railway tracks was designated as the Main Street district.

The grant was designed to stimulate business growth in the downtown area, to provide loans for new construction and façade renovations and to encourage an overall marketing program to bring shoppers back to the downtown area.

It worked.....thanks to the efforts of many volunteers and elected officials and their staffs.
