A12 Spend an evening out at the Bayfront Chef’s MarketWhen Gina Lucia was in California earlier this year, she discovered the nighttime farmers market in San Rafael. It was definitely the thing to do on Thursday evenings,Ž she said. Everyone went for the local produce, the locally made products, the live entertainmentƒ it was incredible.Ž When she came home to Naples, the marketing manager for Stoneys Steakhouse at Bayfront knew a similar concept would work here. Bayfront developer Kevin Stoneburner knew it, too. A chefs market was something we had been thinking about as a way to make Bayfront part of the community,Ž Mr. Stoneburner said. While traditional farmers markets are great for early-morning weekend risers who just want to get their shopping done, “If you can swing it, you can get a boat for less now than you could two years ago.” — Ken Stead, executive director of the Southwest Florida Marine Industries Association.

Then they moved to Southwest Florida, and five months later they were boaters. Here there are protected harbors, channels, rivers and places to go,Ž said Jill Jones, 32, of Cape Coral. Plus, the Joneses live within 10 miles of at least two public boat ramps, where they launch the 17-foot Bayliner they bought at the Fort Myers Spring Boat Show earlier this year. Southwest Floridas sandy barrier islands create a perfect coastline for boaters like the Joneses and thousands of others because rough water stays west of the islands in the Gulf. Boats of all sizes have destinations along back bays, rivers, sounds and creeks. Pair the geography with the number of ramps and marinas open to the public, plus waterfront dining destinations and pristine parks, and its easy to see why Collier and Lee counties are frequently mentioned as boating destinations in magazines. The nations largest-circulation boating magazine, BoatU.S., for example, featured PicnicBY BETSY CLAYTONnews@” Wwater WHY IT'S better ON THE BY CINDY PIERCEcpierce@” SEE MARKET, A20
