There are new bike racks installed at the Centre Street entrance to the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market. The wooden rack is located at the corner of Centre and N. 7th Streets, right behind the “Bicycles Not Allowed on Sidewalks” sign. So, hop on your bike this Saturday and see what this open air market has in store for you this week.
Dan Voll will be joined by Michelle for your musical entertainment and the Amelia Island Runners will be this week’s featured not-for-profit organization.
In addition to the wonderful variety of soaps, candles, produce, beef, dairy, hot spices and more, there are new vendors joining the farmers’ market on February 2, 2013: Alex’s Russian Bakery and Ars Cake Creations. Alex’s Russian Bakery specializes in traditional European pure-rye sourdough breads, and Ars Cake Creations helps you enjoy the sweet life with homemade cakes, truffles and cookies, “Bringing bliss to those who choose to indulge.”
The first Saturday of the month also marks the return of the Bee Keeper, Nancy Gentry; and Doug’s Wild Alaska Salmon.
Nancy will bring her virtual hive and answer all of your questions relating to bees and their honey. She is easy to locate, too, just follow the bees to the Cross Creek Honey booth.
Doug, a licensed Coast Guard captain and former Bering Sea crabber of TV’s Deadliest Catch fame, and his four sons fish the Alaskan waters of Bristol Bay for salmon and then return to Fernandina Beach to share with you their fresh, frozen catch.
