Trader Jon's

One of Pensacola's top tourist destinations for decades, Trader Jon's was named after infamous owner Martin "Trader Jon" Weissman. Decorated with photos and memorabilia, this space was a safe haven where young flight students, military personnel, astronauts and movie stars rubbed shoulders with local politicians, characters and the occasional ne'er-do-well. Any intimate event with a lively group of friends would be perfectly suited for this vibrant space, inside the Pensacola Museum of History.
