Fernandina Farmers’ Market Has a Theme Song

Fernandina Farmers' Market Has a Theme SongWhile each Saturday at the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market has a unique feel with a variety of talented musical guests, charitable “Booth with a Cause”, or a featured Fernandina Brick and Mortar business booth, our market on June 6th is going to be especially exciting!

Some folks come to enjoy the fresh baked pastries and breads, and others come to see the newest crops harvested from our seasonal produce vendors. You may want to meet our newest vendors, Veggie Confetti, who sells micro-greens and pea shoots, or meet our newest soap and bath product vendor. Some people quickly run in and out of the market picking up specific items like a head of hydroponic butter-head lettuce and a pound or two of wild caught shrimp. My neighbor comes to socialize their well behaved, leashed dog and chat with their friends, and my brother comes to the market on a mission to always try something different! No matter why you come to the Market Place, you don’t want to miss the farmers market on June 6, 2015!

In addition to nearly 40 vendors, our entertainment will be provided by country music recording artist, Smoky Coe. Smoky has written a very special song about the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market. Lyrics describe some of the things that make our market special like the Hambone Stumps Band, our local Preacher, and of course, Felix – the Original Peanut Man. His band, featuring Dan Voll on guitar, will be performing and the new song has been worked into their playlist.

Since June 1st marks the beginning of hurricane season, folks from Nassau County Emergency Management Services will be on hand to describe the county’s role in for disaster preparedness. They will have valuable information regarding natural and man-made disasters, and other emergency situations including evacuation route and shelter information.

Rendezvous Festival, a film, music and gaming festival held on Amelia Island June 5th through 13th, will have an informational booth to answer your questions about their film/lunch series, film-talk, gaming expo, and their many other events. Actors, directors, and other industry professionals are expected to pop in at their booth. Two of Rendezvous’ local concerts include alternative rock band, Blistur, on June 10th, and country music artist Shane Wooten will perform Thursday, June 11th.

The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market features farmers, producers and ranchers. The people you meet in the booths are part of the team who make, grow or create the products you’ll find in our market. Our goal is to provide you with the best food vendors in the regions, as well as a unique experience each time you visit. We believe we may very well be the friendliest farmers market in Florida! We are open every Saturday, rain or shine, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, on North Seventh Street in historic Fernandina.

Ghost of the Blues at the Florida Theatre

Ghost of the Blues at the Florida Theatre “From Beale Street to Broadway, the Revival of the Blues.” That’s what Producer Randy Knight along with Co-Producer Jeff Malone, President of the Amelia Island Blues Festival and the Northeast Florida Blues Society, have cookin’ on their Ghost of the Blues production traveling nationwide with the next event at the Jacksonville Florida Theatre on Friday, May 8th, 2015 at 8:00 pm.

Ghost of the Blues is a musical revue featuring professional touring musicians paying homage to Blues legends that have passed on to Blues Heaven. “It’s all about celebrating the musical legacy of the Blues Pioneers responsible in producing the roots of American music today” said Malone.

ACT I takes place in a graveyard not far from where Robert Johnson made his deal with the devil in order to become the greatest bluesman ever. See Robert Johnson, and then progress through Blues history with John Lee Hooker and Etta James belting out the boogie and the hits that morphed the Blues into Rock n’ Roll.

ACT II changes the stage into a juke joint where Willie Dixon, Little Walter, Albert King, Koko Taylor and others entertain you with a spontaneous explosion of the Blues like you would see “back in the day” when American Blues ruled the world!

The outstanding cast is what makes the show. Staring Biscuit Miller as Willie Dixon, James Armstrong as John Lee Hooker, Stacy Brooks as Etta James, Bobby Wilson as Robert Johnson and more…

See and hear what it was like at an authentic blues revival, brothers and sisters of the Blues, when Ghost of the Blues comes to life on the stage of the Jacksonville Florida Theatre on Friday, May 8th, 2015.

This is the only appearance in Florida this season!

Pasta, Pastries and Natural Products at Local Farmers Market

Pasta, Pastries and Natural Products at Local Farmers MarketThe Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market will be open on April 4, 2014. Located on North Seventh Street, between Alachua and Centre Streets, this open air market is held under the canopy of water oaks and cypress trees, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Favorite vendors attending this Saturday include Harlow’s All Natural Products. Jake and Sarah Harlow live in Fernandina Beach and the make vegan and all natural home and personal care products. Using essential oils, butters, oils, salts, sugars, waxes, and other fine ingredients, each batch is handcrafted. Products include deodorant, liquid and bar soaps, lip and body balms, scrubs, sprays, tartlets and more.

Amelia Pasta is another popular vendor in the Market Place. Peter is a life long foodie, and a culinary grad who was trained in New York City restaurants. He is passionate about good food and his gourmet artisan pasta is hand made with fresh vegetables, herbs and milled spices. The pasta is made is small batches and then air dried the traditional way to bring you an all natural pasta of unparalleled quality and flavor. There are no artificial flabors, dyes or preservatives.

A staple in the Market Place is Maria’s Bakery. Rudy brings fresh baked breads and pastries to Fernandina Beach every Saturday morning. The delightful aromas of fresh multi-grain, whole wheat, cinnamon raisin, and sourdough is nothing short of sensational. His jalapeno cheese, pumpernickel, heavy grain, rye and Italian Chibatta breads make it difficult to choose a favorite. Maria’s sliced and artisan breads are made with no oil, no sugar, no dairy and no preservatives. One of my favorites is their focaccia breads. A flat, oven baked bread similar to pizza dough in texture and style, these round loaves are available jalapeno and cheese, black olive, and asiago garlic and rosemary. One of the most popular items found at the vendor’s booth is a spinach and feta mixture wrapped in filo dough, and he almost always sells out of fresh apple and cinnamon strudels. Rudy also brings cream filled cannolis, cookies, muffins, and flavored pound cakes.

These are just three of the nearly 30 vendors you will find this week at the farmers’ market in downtown Fernandina Beach.

While we say we are open every Saturday of the year, rain or shine, we do make one exception. We will NOT be open on May 2, 2015 due to the Isle of Eight Flag’s Shrimp Festival. For more information, please visit www.FernandinaBeachMarketPlace.com.
