Mayport, a Village 400 Years Older Than Me - Framed Print
“Mayport, a Village 400 Years Older than Me” defines North Florida’s coastal history and culture very well. Seafood is such a part of our lives in Florida, and nothing is like Mayport Shrimp straight from the dock to your table. Visit Singletons Seafood Shack or Safe Harbor Seafood restaurant and market for the freshest, most delicious treasures the Atlantic has to offer.
Mayport Village is one of America’s oldest port towns, established on May 1, 1562, when the French first settled in the area. The port is known for its locally caught seafood and 455+ years of history.
In 1969 Captain Ray and Ann Singleton opened their Seafood Shack on the St. Johns River in Mayport. The Shack has grown addition after addition to satisfy locals and tourists alike. Captain Ray was a 9th-generation descendant of a Minorcan, and an indentured European worker brought to Florida in 1758 to clear mangroves and settle the area. Captain Ray is part Italian, Greek, and British. With his local fishing knowledge, he crafted his famous Minorcan Chowder.
