One of the Gulfport Tuesday Fresh Market's newest vendors is shocking guests with edible art you almost don't want to eat! Stop by Southern Belle's Cottage Bakery's space and you'll find beach scenes, fish, flip flops and "Keep Gulfport Weird" cookies wrapped and ready to eat.

Now, baking not only allows her to channel her inner Picasso, it also sooths her mind. Audrey has a neurological disorder that requires regular…

The Gulfport Tuesday Fresh Market Coordinator Daniel Hodge says the customer traffic was not enough to warrant the extra work and expenses of putting on "Twilight Tuesdays."
For the past 5 months the Gulfport Tuesday Fresh Market invited guests out for a late night of shopping and cooking demonstrations in downtown Gulfport. For seven years thousands of people have come to Gulfport, once a week, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to shop for local produce, handmade art, jewelry, flowers and more. This past fall, officials announced that the first Tuesday of each month the market would stay open until 8 p.m. to allow residents and visitors, who couldn't make it during the day, to enjoy the Fresh Market at night. Below is the announcement from Coordinator Daniel Hodge explaining why they will no longer continue "Twilight Tuesdays." "After carefully considering the experiences we’ve had with our Fresh Market evening hours…
