From start to finish, our experience with Green Turtle was stellar. Excellent communication all around between my wife & I and their catering team, Tammy & Summer. Their catering packages are designed perfectly for any budget and they have a ton of food options that will satisfy anyone's taste. During our tasting, the chef took the time to come out and greet us which was such a nice gesture. Our guests could not stop raving about how delicious the food was and how courteous and friendly their entire staff was. Would 100% recommend to anyone interested in having a smooth, seamless, friendly, and delicious experience! Very much looking forward to visiting the cafe for dinner soon! More...

We enjoyed our cafe experience. The service was impeccable, food delicious, and for a busy lunch time crowd fast. If you are seeking a quiet, romantic lunch, this is not the place for you. You will experience the epitome of cafe dining; great food, a myriad of swirling conversations, and an upbeat atmosphere. More...

Usually get to go food for beach picnic, always yummy. They have some wine that I can't find anywhere else, and I love that they always have it. Muffins are to die for. Easy takeout food, but love the sandwich making there. Easy to pair with a little salad and take for a perfect lunch. More...

I love this market. They do offer vegan sides (try the Cranberry Wild Rice!) But I wish they offered more main meal vegan choices. Some of the foods are marked Vegan but many are not, necessitating my asking for help. Overall a great place. More...

Absolutely the best secret Gourmet store in Brevard county!! Lots of fresh meat, seafood, produce, bakery and extensive wine selections. A cafe is available for a gourmet meal. No time? Try one of their grab and go options from the deli. The selection of epicurean style cooked food choices changes daily. I might never turn on my oven again. More...

This is a great local grocery store with a nice selection of prepared foods. Whenever I don't have time to make side dishes (pasta, salad, soup, etc.) I stop by the Green Turtle to pick something up. Parking is always convenient and there's never a long line to check out. Definitely recommend stopping by! More...

Love the meats, the fresh seafood and the wine but the vegetables continually disappoint. I have had multiple times where the veggies looked ok at the store only to find them partially rotten or internally spoiled. Once I returned an item and although I was given my money back I also received excuses from the management and blame shifting regarding their suppliers. When you pay a premium for something you expect comparable quality - not so with their vegetables. It has happened enough times that I think there must be a fundamental problem.  I'll still purchase other items but not veggies.  The low quality for the vegetables keeps me from giving a better review.

Cool little cafe inside an upscale market. The cafe is only open for lunch and a few brunch's a week, so check the hours. The Maine style lobster roll was rich and meaty. A nicely toasted and buttered bun held the lobster. Once you are done in the restaurant head out into the market and get some handmade chocolates! More...

Lunch is consistently creative & delicious, serving portions are on the larger side and there is something for everyone - meat, seafood, vegan, beer, wine, etc.  today I had the shrimp gumbo, which was perfectly spiced w okra, and chunks of ham & shrimp. The poke salad (half size) was more than enough for 2. The bonus is the attached market, a great place for a variety of gourmet foods, fresh cuts of meats & seafood and some spectacular specialty items (try the Asian noodle salad...omg!). Desserts are decadent and the wine selection is the best on the beachside. Love GT, only wish it was closer. More...

I attended a wine tasting which featured the top 10 wines for 2013 (rated by GTM). What a fabulous evening! Tim did a great job pairing the wines with the delicious food! The duck with the apple/cinnamon demi-glaze was fantastic!!! One of my favorite wines was rated #3! Looking forward to the next one!!! More...

I had taken a roadtrip in florida last summer and happened to stop by the green turtle on the way. I clearly remember my visit to the green turtle: the ambiance, the friendly staff, and the delicious sandwich- a reuben if i recall correctly. Typically I wouldn't recall stopping at a particular restaurant or grocery store, but these 3 things stuck in my head- I plan to stop again on my next roadtrip to Florida. While I cannot comment directly on the treatment towards disabled people, I would recommend this deli to friends and would stop by again if the opportunity came around. More...

Not aware of the service dog incident....but do enjoy the products....sometimes people need to step back and learn the whole story..there is one side and then the other..and the truth lies somewhere in between. How many of you were physically in this establishment and witnessed the service dog situation?...don't jump on the bandwagon and stand in judgement. More...

Green Turtle Market- Melbourne Beachside- 5 Stars
This is the quintessential shopping experience. They are fully stocked with a great selection of fresh cut meat, fresh seafood and a giant array of food items prepared in their large kitchen supervised by the head Chef Ercan. The Chef is a noted culinary genius. There is a fresh salad section, a deli serving boars head products. As you peruse the dessert station you end up with a watering mouth that can be sated only by purchasing one of the delectable morsels. Fresh produce and cheeses are equally abundant. Lest we forget their excellent wine and craft beer selection presided over by an in house sommelier. I truly cannot day enough good things about the Green Turtle Market. As a final note I would like to mention the owner Tim Dwight. He is really a nice guy. He is friendly , helpful and always willing to answer questions. Several people have mentioned he is rude. I find him to be an intense individual but never rude. I think he has done an amazing job growing this business. The Big Boy says BRAVO!!!!!! More...

Highly recommended! I usually shop the Green Turtle for the steaks and seafood or to grab some ready to eat entrees from the deli counter but recently I am addicted to the fresh made to order sandwiches for lunch. I've heard folks rave about the local supermarket sandwich but they don't hold a candle to Green Turtles made to order deli sandwich, I am going there now to have some lunch! More...

Tammy and all the staff at Green Turtle Market are hands down amazing! The food for our wedding day was absolutely incredible and the team is a dream to work with. They scheduled and planned the most amazing tasting for us when we were still looking for our caterer. They went above and beyond and served us the most delicious meals. Tammy was more than accommodating and such a joy to work with. Our guests all raved about the food and could not stop talking about how delicious it was. We had a ton of food left over that we were able to enjoy the next day. You will not be disappointed having Green Turtle as your caterer!! More...

Green Turtle Market recently catered our wedding and OMG, it was amazing!

The entire Green Turtle staff at our wedding was so accommodating and attentive. Tammy was a joy to work with and always seemed so excited to talk to us about our event. She allowed us to completely customize the menu and made our tasting feel very private and special. The hardest part was deciding on the menu because everything was so delicious.

Our wedding guests are still raving about the food! The staff at our wedding even came and found us while we were taking photos after the ceremony with a plate of hors d'oeuvres.

I would recommend Green Turtle Market to anyone, any day. Just can't get over how great everything was.

A great boutique Gourmet Market in a convenient location.    Both their ingredient as well as their preprepared foods are excellent.   This is the only place in the area where you can purchase genuine cans of Cafe du Monde Chicory Coffee.  (The perfect way to start the day.)The meat and seafood are fresh, flavorful and nicely presented.   Nicer filets or salmon cannot be found anywhere in Brevard.   The staff is friendly and attentive.   The baked good are fresh and delicious as well.

There's a myth that these gourmet markets aren't priced competitively, certainly it would be easy to assume that and I've been to a number of specialty markets where that's been the case, but as most know that frequent these types of markets, pricing isn't everything but it is a factor. Although this was my first and only visit to Green Turtle Market I was beyond impressed with the quality and the prices. The amount of unique items is as you'd expect, every aisle is stocked with a vast selection of gourmet food stuffs and as impressive as this is, the chilled cases are what seems to be the attraction here as well as the extremely fair pricing.The entirety of the back wall here is lined with cases all staffed to fill your order as fast as possible, but understand there's no need to rush here, window shopping is encouraged for those of us who haven't previously experienced the dishes created here. Starting from the right working left you'll find the bakery it's so tempting it's filled with cakes, pies, muffins and just about anything your sweet tooth craves, then the freshly made specialty salads, so many options, all look delicious I'm sure there definitely something for everyone inside. The center case was filled with entrees from shepherd pie to stacks of single portioned vegetable lasagna, keep walking and you'll see the spectacular selection of sausage, marinade chicken and prime meats, including select veal and prime steaks hand cut to any thickness you desire. Finally my favorite case the seafood case filled with beautiful fresh fish, colossal shrimp, lobster etc etc etc...Be sure to bring your chilled cooler if your traveling in from out of town as I did so you can take advantage of some of these beautiful selections of chilled dishes, meats and seafood. As great as all the items on display look, the service is what was most impressive, the staff here were definitely hand picked and trained properly, it's no wonder the traffic here was continuous during our visit here...

We got a gift card when we bought our house a few miles away....finally made it in.....WHY DID WE WAIT A cafe on one side and a boutique deli meat market seafood market wine market with great sandwiches made to order for taking​ out or eat on the porch. Now you can get table service in the Cafe and that is something we will do next time. Bought three different sandwiches and two root beers​ and a cream soda. WOW,​ the sandwiches were great and it was a busy Sunday​ at lunchtime​. The staff was friendly and the cashiers were very helpful in explaining how it all worked. The clientele​ was friendly​ too. A little-known​ perk and pointed out by a fellow shopper is the free beer on tap.....very cool....so don't abuse it. Having lived in the area off and on for forty years the beach needed and needs places like this that have quality meats, sandwiches, ​and service.  A must do again and soon. Check the photos. @kodiak_kuisine More...

The team at Green Turtle are professional, timely, and personable. Tammy and Summer are both a true joy to work with! As a wedding planner I have a higher level of expectations than the average client. Chef and his staff consistently knock it out of the park for my clients and for my personal events as well. They catered my baby shower a few months ago and I could not have been happier with the way everything turned out. From the tasting to the presentation on the day of no detail was overlooked. They accented our setup with pink details and worked with me to create a custom all pink menu for our baby girl's pink drenched shower! They put out description cards for each dish so guests will know what they are being served and their service staff are always friendly and helpful. The food is beyond fresh and delicious every time. If you are looking for someone to cater your next event, don't hesitate contact them today! More...

Have eaten here twice in the last month. Lunch is amazing! Have gotten soup both times (shrimp gumbo and cream of mushroom). Easily two of the best I've ever had. Whatever the soup is....get it. Also had the fresh fish lunch special and the steak sandwich. Both were amazing .  The place is always busy and everything looks and tastes super fresh. Don't get turned away by it being connected to the grocery, that's what makes it so awesome. Service is always super friendly as well .  Really can't beat this place More...

We had Green Turtle cater my daughter's wedding March 3, 2018. It was great! We did a pizza buffet with salad, pasta dishes and veggie's very yummy. The only thing is we did run out of pizza, but there was still plenty of other food. Next time I would suggest pieces by sliced much smaller. Everyone at Green Turtle is amazing. More...

Green Turtle just catered my wedding at Up the Creek Farms last weekend and we received so many complements on the food.

We were looking around for a cater for our wedding. We are foodies and knew we wanted to have really good food. The menu was gourmet. We ate in the restaurant and we're happy with the food. We then proceeded to schedule a taste test of our food choices. They were very organized and have everything ready. We made a few adjustments to suit our tastes. I was surprised we didn't sign a contract or make a deposit. The day of our wedding everything went very smooth. We received many compliments from our guests about the food. The staff was very attentive to our needs, checking in with us every so often. I would use them again for any catering needs we have. More...

Three people recommended GT in general and I'm glad I went with them. They have an extensive list from which to create a menu. The servers set up, replenished, cleaned up during and after the party. They were wonderful to work with. I've never enjoyed a party so much. The guests loved the food. More...

I first saw this store as I drove past it on my way to the beach and immediately the exterior decor got my attention. Something akin to a whole foods except the outside has cute decorations of beach stuff - sea turtles and what have you.I will not lie, what I loved the most is the fact that as soon as you walk in there is free beer (The first cup is free) and good beer too. That day they were offering Land Shark Lager which after a super hot day at the beach, it was the most amazing, mind blowingly delicious thing on the face of the Earth; I love you so much Green Turtle Market!Ok, on to the actual items that are for sale, very gourmet-esque items but it's actually affordable and they have locally sourced seafood which was the main reason why I went there in the first place. Florida lobster tails for 8.99 is a great deal, and I was also tempted to get a softshell crab since they are seasonal but I confess, I don't know how to cook them properly, but for those of you who do, have at it!I also got a great deal on a dry aged, angus steak which was spectacular; of the best steaks I have ever purchased. They have a wide variety of fresh artesanal breads you don't readily find elsewhere, the last time I saw something that compared was when I was in Seattle.You can be sure that I will make it a point to stop by again when in Melbourne. I suggest you come prepared with a small cooler and ask them for ice, I did and they were very obliging in doing that as well free of charge.I shall have foodie dreams of you Green Turtle Market..

Thank goodness for the Green Turtle on those nights when we don't feel like cooking!  The produce section is really small, but prices are on par with Publix but it's all really fresh.  The deli items we've had are always tasty and (yes, that word again) fresh, and there's a huge selection.  If you're into wine, the selection here is very respectable and they have some unusual items.  Most people seem to appreciate the free beer samples (decent sized cup).  You help yourself to those, which is something that would never happen in a bigger community.The staff are efficient and very well-informed.If you're going to eat bread then forget the Publix bakery,  and buy it here.  Baguettes and olive bread are consistently fantastic.  Not sure if they are made fresh or are frozen, but they're real bread, not chemicals in loaf form.   The bakery also has a decent variety of desserts which are priced reasonably and are enough for two. We've stumbled into a few store events which resulted in copious free food and drinks.   I was all excited when Fresh Market came to Melbourne, but with The Green Turtle so close by it's not even worth crossing the bridge.  We've never eaten in because the café hours are so short, instead, we get takeout and eat at the beach.Just wish they stayed open later!

I love that you can enjoy a small (6 oz) complimentary beer while you are shopping.  Everything here is good from my experience.  Pretty pricey though so you should know that before you step in the door.  Only thing I didn't like is that it can be very congested inside.  A lot of people just seem to be there standing around with their brains vapor locked.  Otherwise, some good selections.  (BTW, the employees sitting around the back door smoking cigarettes doesn't entice my desire to return).

Green Turtle is fabulous. The chef, Ercan, is terrific. I stop there several days per week and pick up dinner. They've done numerous catering jobs for us. I've always been fully satisfied. Their wine selection is excellent and their wine prices are competitive. The best gourmet market in town. More...

We had lunch at the cafe and it was great!  The selection was fairly limited, but the service was good, ambiance was pleasant and the food was great.We had soup and a burrito.  Both were good, but I would go for the burrito next time.  Both were flavorful, appropriate temperature, etc.The free beer in the market next door was a nice touch as well :) More...

Tammy and her crew was perfectly on point! We couldn't have asked for a better caterer. They were prompt, friendly, helpful and reliable. We are so pleased with our choice to have GT cater our wedding, and we highly recommend them for any event! More...

Amazing. Always a new choice everyday. The food is the delicious. Very clean market with unique choices. I was convinced to buy the Coconut Mango sauce...it was out of this world (and their best seller for obvious reasons). All in all definitely give this place a chance it will not disappoint! More...

I am a private-jet Flight Attendant and needed 7 gourmet dinners for our flight the next day by 1pm.  Tammy, who is the catering expert, helped me with some delicious ideas as well as understanding my need for bulk packaging due to space limitations in my galley.  The kitchen and bakery at GT prepared us amazing grilled Mahi ... Grilled salmon as well  and chicken w a delicious lemon/mustard sauce.  Sides of pesto parmesan roasted potatoes and grilled asparagus rounded out the meals superb!   We also needed a birthday cake with a personal greeting.... No problem!  It was crazy good too!Lastly, my passengers moved up their departure time by 3 hours..   I contacted Tammy and they had no problem having everything ready earlier... A true relief!   I commend the staff at Green Turtle!  Friendly, professional and a pleasure to work with!!!   The food is excellent and the selections (esp fresh fish ) plentiful!  Thank you all!!!!

The Green Turtle catered our Wedding Novermber 15th at Ryckman Park. Food was amazing, service was amazing, overall amazing experience with them. Tammy, the director of catering was so very patient with us while we changed our minds and head count over and over. The staff the day of was exceptional and everyone raved about the friendliness of the bartenders and wait staff. Wish I could relive our day 100x time over and I'd choose them every time with out a doubt. More...

We had Green Turtle cater our wedding at their cafe. The food was amazing, but that was to be expected. Tammy arranged everything and she was professional and very sweet. She worked with our wedding colors to coordinate the room and helped set up everything so I had nothing to worry about. Her servers were sweet and professional and my guests were very happy. It was a day to remember! More...

I had the crab stuffed tilapia and the beef teriyaki skewers as main dishes at my wedding, and both were simply amazing. Everyone loved the food and we had several people asking to take more home. The service was great and the setup looked really good they brought their own tea lights and the lady running it was a pleasure. More...

When my husband and I are looking to make a special dinner for ourselves this is where we head for the ingredients!They have an awesome selection of fresh seafood, and meats! I love that for a little extra they will peel and devein the shrimp for you! That's one of my least favorite tasks involved in the cooking process. We love to imbibe and the beer and wine section never disappoints! I love the Petit Petit Syrah and they always have my favorite local beer Orange Blossom Pilsner! mmm (you down with OBP? yeah you know me!)You can also save some time by getting any of their prepared sides to compliment your meal. I try to stay away from the baked goods, but only because they are so delicious and i'm the only one in my house with a sweet tooth! Nice crew working here too! More...

Love the turtle! The seafood specials often beat the local fish markets by far. I love driving by and seeing what's on sale for the week. Also, the prepared foods are always fresh and excellent in taste and value. Beats going to a restaurant for sure. The staff are great and always ready to help! More...

I just had to review this place.  We arrived in Miami Monday  and I had heard so much about this place we decided to go here for lunch yesterday.  Love this place, both the cafe and the market.  We had lunch in the cafe, awsome!! Wow! What a treat and a gem near the beach. I ordered the burger with Gorgonzola it was SO full of flavor. Our server was great. A true delight, sweet, attentive, and oh so cute, giggles. If you miss the Cafe (due to limited lunch time hours) they also offer sandwiches in the market to go. Great to take to the beach. We hit the market after lunch, very pricy, but you get what you pay for.  They have very fresh fish, local beer, and array of foods to choose from.  A treat for the eyes. Will post about other great finds I find while here!!this place is a diffinate 5 star!! More...

The Green Turtle was AWESOME! We worked with Lindsay and she did an amazing job! Everything was organized and taken care of. I did not have to worry about anything because Green Turtle supplied it. The food was great, the service was great, and everyone loved the bartender! More...

The Green Turtle Market was our original destination - we ended up eating at their Grapevine Cafe - but then got to peruse the market - what a great place.The market offers everything you would expect, and then some.  There's wine, beer, fresh meats, fish, prepared food just needing cooked, and they even have a small menu of items they'll prepare for you to try.  I was impressed mostly by the wine and beer selection - mostly the beer to be honest.  Not a single big company brew in site - microbrew lover's delight only.  The staff was so attentive and friendly I was simply amazed - and on Saturday you get free wine tasting and samples galore.  We will be going back and it will be soon.Here's an UPDATE to the above:  All still true and the sandwiches we had - El Cubano and the GT Special.  Both were fantastic.  We also had dessert - an Amaretto Cheesecake slice and a slice of Banana Walnut Cake - also both fantastic.  I even got to buy a six pack of their off-brand beers (I think I got a good one.)  Anyway, staff was super friendly, helpful, and attentive.  The place is clean, has an awesome atmosphere and makes for a great lunchtime place.  Keep up the good work Green Turtle!

This place is great. The prepared foods are excellent. I went there for a wine tasting. They had a nice variety of wine. But I also appreciated the fact that they had a nice price range.  The people doing the tasting were friendly, easy going and not pretentious. The food is excellent but a little pricey...however the ingredients are very fresh so I think the price is worth it. They also have a delicious assortment of dried goods like gourmet crackers to go with the cheeses. I have not eaten at the grapevine but plan on doing so soon. More...

this place is awesome. Great place for lunch...stop afterward to grab a bottle of wine or some fresh fish from the deli. I met a friend here for lunch and we ended up talking for about 4 hours at our table without any frustration from the staff. They were very accomodating! Food is fresh and healthy! More...

This place has a lot of specialty foods in it. It has a nice selection of raw meats, as well as prepared foods. I like that you can sample some of the foods before buying them. They have a cafe inside with a nice selection of gourmet meals and a sitting area outside. Everyone who works their is nice and friendly. This is a great spot for a foodie. More...

I was just visiting Florida from Chicago and my fabulous family took me to this place- Dear God it is amazing. Had lunch in the restaurant, still wanting that meal again and again. Went back to shop and have a gourmet basket made, which they did while I waited and it was impeccable. Truly a gem of a place, I wanted it all. These are the kind of places you can only wish to stumble upon and I sure am glad I was taken here. Cannot wait to return! More...

Try the steakburgers ... great grilled, baked, steamed or made into meatballs. The meat is so fresh that it may be eaten raw. Seriously. :-)

Stopped by once and was impressed.  The selection is a nice addition to the area.  I haven't eaten in the restaurant... just stopped in for shopping after a shopping recommendation.  Good stuff.  Nice selection of local seafood.  The beer selection leaves a bit to be desired.  But I'll be back.  Free half pint of beer is a bonus.  Downtown Produce on the mainland seems similar (as far as packaged goods and seafood goes, but GT lacks the produce and beer of DP).

Okay, so yes this place is a bit pricey, especially for a girl from the trailer park if you know what I mean. But I just love how fresh everything is. I like to stop in and pick up some stuff from the cold case for lunch, and I generally also pick up some of the brazillian bla-bla-bla meat things to take home for dinner. I really don't know what it's called off hand, but if you see it, you'll know what it is. It's seasoned beef medallions on skewers....they freaking ROCK! You should soo try it. I'm telling ya.

Let me give you some advice Try the Hamburger in the restaurant, it seriously is the best in this county .....possibly the world. I also love the blackened shrimp wrap from the deli. Especially when the older guy makes it. He seems to make it different than all the other sandwich makers. I love all the food at this place.... The only down fall is the food only changes to a minimal, but that's not a bad thing because the variety is plentiful. More...

If Bristol Farms and Trader Joe's had a baby, it would be this store. It's high priced and it is not as big of a store as TJs but I'm still a fan because it's the best thing available in the area. I tried some gluten free pasta (yum!) and various items from the deli. All of the pasta salads I've tried are great and I really liked the fish (forgot which kind of fish it was) spread that is in the fridge area. Good selection of cheeses and fresh seafood. My coworker says they have great sushi grade tuna so I will have to try that next time. More...

Good, big gourmet market on the beachside with lots of prepared dishes and a good wine selection.  Down Eau Gallie Blvd past the big Walmart on A1A.It ain't cheap, but they have a huge assortment of prepared foods that they will gladly cater to your home, plus fresh fish and meats, the mandatory good cheeses, cold cuts, wine selection, exotic condiments.  They have a lose leader on big shrimp that alone makes for a good reason to stop in.

Great selection of prepared dishes, sandwiches, fresh meat/seafood, baked goods and gourmet products.  Good wine selection and some great local beer on tap to sample while shopping.  I haven't tried the cafe yet, but I suspect its great, based on everything else I've tried from the market. More...

This market resembled markets I'm used to shopping at near where I live. They had an excellent selection of gourmet cheeses and meats and had a pretty impressive wine selection. They seem to only carry local beers but they all looked good.The prices were a little on the high end but you're paying for quality. Be sure to try the free samples of a local beer right out of the tap.The fish section was pretty comprehensive. We bought shrimp, mussels and oysters and all were fantastic cooked on the grill.

A little overpriced, but you get what you pay for. They have a good selection of wines, their meats are wondeful, but very expensive.  If you are looking for high quality meats, fish and deli salads for a special occasion - The Green Turtle is your best option.They also have incredible sandwiches for dine-in or take out.
