Gulf Place on 30A recently announced two new merchants have joined the town center — Modus Photography and The Deep South Market.

The brainchild of Freeport native and self-taught photographer Chandler Williams, Modus Photography is a creative team specializing in capturing what the average eye doesn't see. From creatively capturing the lifestyle of 30A to hiking off the grid in Latin America, Modus is there. Williams and his team have an extensive portfolio with work ranging from travel/documentary to commercial and family portraits. Modus Photography’s now second location is nestled in the shared space with Sunrise Coffee Co. at the corner of County Road 393 and County Highway 30A. The gallery is open daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The husband and wife duo behind The Perfect Pig and Preacher’s Kitchen at Gulf Place, Jeff and Vickie Miller have introduced The Deep South Market to South Walton. The Deep South Market, which celebrated its Grand Opening on Oct. 8, is the restaurant veteran’s dream combination of delicatessen and boutique gift shop.

“I am a foodie from way back,” said Vickie Miller. “Beginning in the '90s with my catering company in Atlanta, Eighteen Carrot Catering, I have always loved food. From buying gourmet ingredients to preparing them and then enjoying those dishes with friends. It is all such a treat! A gourmet market has long been on my to-do list for quite some time, and I’m excited we could bring it to Gulf Place.”

The Deep South Market is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with extended in-season hours. To-go orders and general inquiries about the market can be made by calling 850-660-1591. Along with the opening of The Deep South Market, The Perfect Pig recently updated their bar to include more space, which flows into the market.
