    That’s wonderful! Congratulations!! Hopefully you’ll bring a store to Jacksonville Fl

    1. The Hungry Black Man will be reviewing Jacksonville in August! Looking forward to finding hidden gems. Especially Black owned businesses. Stile’s Market has plans to expand. Hopefully the support will garner the support needed to establish a footprint in Jacksonville. Keep updated with our next review.

    I see my cousin Joshua Grayson was quoted in the article. I must come through as I spend so much money in whole foods and Publix, but mostly I want to put my money into black businesses that help our community. Thanks for doing what you do.

    This is what this race war turned into labeling stores by the race or color who owns it who gives a fuck and I’m not racist my wife black she laughed at this shit wake up people your being programed

    1. Definitely not a race war. It is simply a celebration of individuals who otherwise had no voice.

    2. SelfLove says:

      Why not just say congrats and keep it moving. Aren’t you happy there’s a store created for and by black people? Don’t stalk us or stereotype us when we come in your stores and we might not think of building our own.
      Happy to see Black Americans making progress.

    How does it smell when you walk in?

    1. Toni says:

      I stopped by there earlier in the year in search of more fresh produce, however, I was quite turned off by the putrid scent of, I am not really sure, a mix of something: rotted produce? I had not passed back since. But I am willing to give them another try as they’re under new ownership. I see those Burro bananas in the picture…awesome!

      1. That is unfortunate. I have no dog in the race, so if you go great, if not that’s fine too. I just review based off my experiences. You should probably talk to management. The guy’s name is Mr.Finley Matthews. He really needs feedback from customers. Thanks for your comment, and subscribe to the blog if you haven’t already.

    I would love to get some knowledge from the owner of this store. I’ve been wanting open up a black owned grocery store in my town. If you could relay my interest that would be awesome

    1. It smells like produce, fruits, and veggies.

  16. Please consider shipping produce directly to homes… Here’s a website reference. https://www.farmboxdirect.com

    Speaking of websites your company simply must have one. Word of mouth only goes so far now a days. Take advantage of technology! 🙂 I’m so glad to hear about your company! 🙂 If my family gets a chance to travel there you will see us really soon and often!!!

  17. Thank you for sharing great information as I’m always am looking for farmers market. I just started my blog site a week ago. Maybe in the future we can collaborate. -LilyB

  18. Ches says:

    This is close to me. Would love to support it more but a lot of times the produce is not fresh. I’ve thrown so much away because it goes bad so quickly.

    1. The store is under new management and ownership. Please share your thoughts with the owner, Mr. Finley Matthews.

  19. Olivia says:

    I have been a patron of stiles farmers market for years, since I was a teenager in fact. Anyway the prices have always been very very low! I recently went to stiles and I see the prices were raised. Stiles has been the only market I shop to purchase my produce but it seems it’s just as costly as regular supermarkets now. Is this just my imagination? Am I being a pessimist? Regardless I will continue to shop at stiles because it is now black owned and we need to support each other!!! So you didn’t lose me as a customer but those who frequent stiles may be in for a bit of a surprise.

  20. Johnnie says:

    Do you have enough to supply two other stores

  21. Ketia says:

    Hello, I shop here often and this is my first time seeing you guys… I would love to speak to you personally about a few things if you dont mind

    1. Hello,

      Please email me at [email protected]. I would love to hear from you.

    2. The owner is looking to open multiple locations.

  22. Man, I wished i lived in Florida, Your product looks excellent!!

  23. Carrie says:

    This is good news, I am happy to learn that you are able to say exactly which farmer supplied the produce. However, the world is gravitating towards healthy choices and while it is good to know from whom your produce came, it is even more important to use a farmer who does organic farming (without using Roundup and other harmful pesticides on their crops), otherwise, it would not make sense switching to this store.

    The gentleman on the left in the photo is holding Chiquita bananas, which are not locally grown and which are not organically grown.

    While I am black, I would strongly suggest promoting healthier eating choices as opposed to the race and I can guarantee you that your clientele will expand because I would personally patronize health over race.

    The concept of healthy is to be commended and congratulations. Looking forward to your expansion towards organic choices

    1. Hello. This is certainly a pleasant surprise. What state did you purchase the land?

    I went with a few friends to introduce them to this grocery store, what a disappointment it was. The store is not what was posted online, none of the food is fresh, the entrance and exit doors were both kept opened. You should see the meat they were selling. I purchased some raspberry, Blue Berry papaya for my morning smoothies, this morning I found most of them on the bottom were glued to the foam with mildew. I was so eager to support this business because I believe in supporting and spending my money at the Black owned businesses, but how can we really support such a business? Extremely disappointed. I firmly believe that this place should be inspected the city and be closed down for selling unsafe products. I have managed many restaurants and know about fresh products and as someone who enjoys providing exquisite service with a smile also believe that part of the service to sell safe and clean products. This store I have rated on a scale of 1 to 10, as 2 which is dangerous since all the products were warm and the AC unit was working really hard which also was a sign that the unit was not working.

    1. I’m sorry you had that experience. The place was recently acquired by the new owner within a couple months. He has assured there will be enhancements to the building as well as from his suppliers. You should reach out to him directly with your concerns. His name is Finley Matthews and you can reach him at the store. Thank you for your comments. Fortunately for me, my visit was quite the opposite.

    2. Thanks for your comment. I have a question for you. I plan on going to Destin, FL to review the salamander resort & spa. It’s Black owned, and I was wondering if you heard anything about it?

    3. This is foolishness. Your fruits did not rot in a day, you are suppose to look to see if the fruit is bad, fruit not covered in chemicals will spoil quickly, normal people ask when the fruits come in.

    I live in the Fort Myers area. I’m going on 2 years vegan, more and more I’m buying a lot of fruits and veggies. Fort Myers is approx.: 2 hours away. Do you have any affiliates in my area or could we discuss the possibly of create an easement to access your products. I’m looking to reinvest in my community – and live healthy.
    Thank you,

    1. Thanks for your comment. Please follow our blog at Thehungryblackman.com and simply provide your email address to receive exciting information and reviews on destinations in your area. As far as Stile’s market, I will check with the owner on your behalf and provide you with his information.

    Well, after seeing hiding colors, I googled black owned businesses. This is up the way. Hope it still exist.
