Farmers Market is Open Rain or Shine

Come rain or shine, the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market is open every Saturday except for during the Shrimp Festival.

Farmers Market is Open Rain or ShineThe Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market and the Fernandina Beach Arts Market will both be open in historic, downtown on March 14, 2015.

The farmers’ market, located on North Seventh Street, features new seasonal produce from our farmers as the spring season rapidly approaches.

You will find early harvests of yellow crookneck and summer squash coming in at Boatright Farms, as well as zucchini and early Vidalia onions.

Amelia Pasta now offers gluten free in their sweet potato pasta, and lemon garlic orzo.

Island Juice and Java serves up hot coffee, and chai tea, as well as hot chocolate with your choice of marshmallows, chocolate chips, mint chips or whipped cream. They also serve mango-pineapple and strawberry-banana smoothies, lemonade, and more.

For the next two weeks, the farmers’ market is assisting Relay For Life with their Canned Food Drive. You are encouraged to drop off cans at the farmers’ market that will be used to hold down the Luminaria bags during their seaside ceremony on March 21st. After the ceremony, the food will be donated to Micah’s Place, Nassau County’s domestic violence shelter.

The Arts Market, located adjacent to the farmers’ market will offer over 20 local artists and craftsman booths. You will find original art, apparel, stoneware, ceramics, jewelry, fused glass, pet supplies, essential oils and more.

Both markets are open from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, rain or shine, and music this week will be provided by the Hambone Stumps Band.
