Organic Blueberries Return to Fernandina’s Farmers Market
The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market will be open on May 16th, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Located under the Spanish moss draped water oaks and cedar trees of North Seventh Street, this is the place to mingle on Saturday mornings on Amelia Island.
Come in for a fresh cup of coffee or a smoothie from Island Juice and Java, and grab a tasty pastry from Great Harvest Bread Company, Bakery Ribault or Maria’s Bakery.
Be sure to sample the delicious blueberries from Harrietts Bluff Organic Blueberry Farm. Located in Woodbine, Georgia, Dr. Krewer and his team will be at the Market Place each Saturday through June. Owned and operated by Gerard Krewer, a specialist known worldwide for his expertise in blueberries and other fruits, the farm is dedicated to growing blueberries organically. They grow several varieties to provide you with the best and tastiest blueberries.
As the blueberries come into season, the Vermont Syrup goes out of season. This will be Steephill’s last visit in the farmers’ market until fall. Be sure to stock up on their Grad A Fancy, Medium Amber, Dark Amber, Grade B Dark, and fresh maple creme syrups, and their traditional soft or hard maple syrup candies.
Musical entertainment is provided by the lovely and talented Jennifer Burns. The Market Place is open every Saturday of the year, rain or shine. Well behaved, leashed pets are always welcome. Visit www.FernandinaBeachMarketPlace.com to learn more.
