Labor Day Weekend brings lots of visitors, family and friends to Amelia Island to conclude their summer vacations and what better place to take them than the downtown, historic Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market?

Karen Miller is back from her summer off with her delicious pies. The family size pie has over two quarts of filling and she now offers a smaller pie made just for you, it is up to you whether to share it or not. Also, for their second appearance at the Fernandina Beach Market Place we are welcoming back Moore Pigs, an all natural pig farm located in Madison, Florida. They bring to the market their all natural pork from HERITAGE BRED pigs. At Moore Pigs, their goal is to produce the highest quality pork by raising happy pigs on pasture, free of both steroids and antibiotics.
Music on August 31, 2013, will be provided by talented Saxophone Player Gabriel Arnold and Senior Vs Crime is our featured non-profit booth. I wrote a story about this group three years ago on SearchAmelia when they were looking for active volunteers. Senior Vs Crime is a project of the Florida Attorney General and this group’s goal is to set “right” any “wrongs” made to our aging population. Stop by their booth and learn more this Saturday at the farmers’ market.
