"But it was never a wish of ours to go beyond Seaside ," said Sarah. "Look at all the nice people we have gotten to meet here, and we got to be in the movie!"

The movie is "The Truman Show," which was filmed in Seaside in 1997.

Making the market as successful as it has been has not come without a lot of elbow grease.

"It takes a lot of hard work," said Sarah. "The kids are here for 12 or 14 hours a day."

However, she said she would not do anything different.

"We believed in Robert from the moment we sat on his porch swing at the red cottage with his little dogs in his lap, and he told me about his vision and how it would be. That told me because of the restrictions, property values would be protected. We bought into his vision, but the way it all has turned out has been beyond our expectations," she said.

In keeping with Davis 's vision of traditional small-towns, Modica Market has provided first jobs for most of the nearby youth in the area, as well as summer jobs for those who return year after year.
