Dockside Market, A Taste of the Keys

Dockside Market baked their first cakes at Ocean Reef in Key Largo over 30 years ago and sold them seaside at the local Dockside Mart. It was natural that the Florida Key Lime was the inspiration for the first Dockside Cake. Baked one at a time, using the only freshest ingredients and genuine Key Lime Juice. Dockside Cakes were so moist, so rich in taste and texture that their fame spread far beyond the shores of these tropical islands. More than thirty years later Dockside Market continues to put homemade goodness with a tropical flair into all of their delicious desserts.

Cork. Leather. A buckle or two. A simple idea that’s made feet happy for over two hundred years. That’s the original Birkenstock. Made in Germany since 1774 (with a few minor design tweaks in the meantime). No smoke. No mirrors. No gizmos. You walk, the shoe molds to your foot. You feel good. We feel good. That’s the deal.

Key West Hammock Co.

We love hammocks and use them in our daily lives. We hang hammocks at the beach, the park; we also have them hanging in our own homes. We have an actual retail location, based in Key West, Florida. Our company mission was to create hammocks that were every bit as comfortable and stable as the original Caribbean designs but with a more contemporary style, and the added advantage that they could be left outside to withstand the sun and rain. Hand woven by skilled artisans from soft-spun polyester cords producing an extremely comfortable hammock that can be left outside for seasons of worry free use, we have created ‘a truly relaxing experience’

Reviews on Shopping in Key West Post a Review

Key West in know for the $5 T-shirt. Make sure to stop by one of the many souvenir shops in Key West and buy a Key West T-shirt. You can also enjoy walking down Duval St and going into one of the many art Galleries. Remember Shopping in Key West means you have to pay taxes so wait to get to the Caribbean before making any big purchases because they are tax and duty free.

Info on Key West

Key West

This flower-scented little city/island is a haven for famous writers, former hippies, struggling artists, sun seekers, and tourists from all over the world. They like the relaxed pace, the storybook architecture, the carnival-like street life, and they are drawn to Mallory Square every evening to applaud the incredible sunsets.

The island of Key West is just 2 miles wide by 4 miles long, and  is one of about a thousand coral islets in an archipelago that stretches 126 miles southward from Miami. It is linked to the mainland by the Overseas Highway, which ribbons its way across 34 of the islands with over 42 bridges, the largest one spanning 7 miles.

The U.S. government acquired Key West from Spain in the early 1800's. During those days, most of the isolated islanders made their living as wreckers and pirates, diving for the booty from ships that wrecked on the coral reefs offshore. Business waned in the mid-1800's: There were fewer wrecks after the government built lighthouses. So the economy turned to shrimping, fishing, sponging and cigar making with the help of Cuban dissidents who had fled their island and Spanish rule. During the Spanish-American War and World War I, major military installations were built on the island. In the 1920's much of the local economic base began to fade as the military left and the cigar industry moved northward to Tampa

Key West is really a tropical garden. As you stroll around, you'll notice palm trees shading peaceful verandas, big rubber trees and Norfolk Island pines, banyan trees with their dramatic aerial roots and red mangroves whose odd roots reach out into the ocean.

You' will find streets  with royal poinciana and fragrant from the frangipani. Fruit trees - papaya, avocado, banana and, of course, key lime - are everywhere. Rub some healing aloe on your sunburn. Check the mahogany trees to see if orchids have attached themselves.

Restaurants in Key West
Seafood is Key West's local mainstay and much of it is fresh from nearby waters. Florida lobster and stone crabs are good choices, as is conch, a chewy shellfish best served in soups or as fritters (it's deep-fried in a spicy batter).

Many of the restaurants in Key West have been influenced by Cuba and other parts of the Caribbean and serve what is known as Floribbean-style cuisine. The Best Dessert in Key West is key lime pie, which has a tart custard filling and a graham-cracker crust.

Shopping Hours: Daily 9 am-5 pm, though some shops are open late.
The streets are full of stores selling everything from T-shirts to cat memorabilia to original artwork. Old Town is where both funky and pricey boutiques are scattered.

Key West

Discover a city where real estate titles date back to the Kings of Spain. Stroll the palm-lined streets and discover gingerbread mansions, tin-roofed conch houses, the John Audubon House and Ernest Hemingway's home.

Walk in the footsteps of famous people like Thomas Edison, Lou Gehrig, Harry Truman and Tennessee Williams. Gaze at the fabled treasure of the galleon Atocha. Discover tomorrow's fine art treasures by Key West's well-known and unknown artists.

Only in Key West would the sun shine brightest when it sets. Everyone gathers for the never planned, always varied Sunset Celebration on the Mallory Dock. Once the sun is safely tucked away by jugglers, mimes, musicians and street artists, the city moves to a different beat. A night beat.
The streets, filled with sidewalk cafes, open-air bars, legendary pubs and world-class restaurants come alive. Gourmets and gourmands alike treat their palates to island specialties. Drama, musicals and comedy flourish on our stages.
However you choose to see the town, you'll discover that old town Key West is one of America's true architectural and botanical treasures.
On even the tiniest lanes, the locals have faithfully restored old wooden homes and adorned them with lush tropical trees and flowers.
New restaurants and stores are popping up in historic Bahama Village, which was settled in the 19th Century by Bahamian immigrants. Hemingway loved coming here to mix with the hard-working locals at boxing matches and arm-wrestling contests.
