The Fernandina Beach Market Place is featuring Cabbage Creek Farm, as well as nearly 40 other vendors, on January 12, 1013. Ava Ferguson and Nakoa Cooley have done an admirable job creating Cabbage Creek Farm
, located in Northwest Nassau County between Cabbage Creek and the St. Mary’s River. They follow the principals of organic farming on their small, sustainable farm and each and every Saturday they share their locally grown produce at the historic, downtown Fernandina Beach farmers’ market. They are proof that it is possible to enjoy a responsible way of farming while make a living without using synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. Come to the market and see what your neighbors grow!
Also this Saturday, Rudy is back from Maria’s Bakery, and Peter has promised to bring more fresh, Florida, jumbo shrimp!
Naturally Yourz is returning to the market with a brand new concept in granola, the Granola Bar! Step up to the “Bar” and select your favorite granola, then add two additional “sides” of your choice including banana chips, dried cranberries, raisins, roasted pumpkin seeds, walnuts, pecans and more!
Every week the Market Place invites you to come meet the farmers, chefs, bakers and creators of tasty delights and organic treasures.
Two of our exhibitors, Lulu’s at the Thompson House and Merge, are participating in Amelia Island Restaurant Week. While you are at the farmers market, be sure to visit Adam and Melanie to learn more about this fixed price, fine dining opportunity.
Located on N. 7th Street, between Centre and Alachua Streets, the Fernandina Beach Market Place is open every Saturday, rain or shine, from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM. For more information call (904) 557-8229.
