Grab a jacket and come on down to North Seventh Street Saturday morning. It may be chilly, but Florida is expecting sunshine on Saturday and this may be the first Saturday of sunshine that we have had since Christmas!

The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine. This is the place to go for your seasonal produce like kale, cauliflower, beans, peas, citrus, berries, lettuce, squash, and more. Our bakeries include Ferra’s Bakery with focaccia bread, baklava, bagels, pastries and Danish. Great Harvest Bread Company will have plenty of loaves, scones, muffins, and cookies. Vegan Amelia will have a full line of vegetarian desserts, and Something Good will be back with a delicious selection of gluten-free products.

Fresh shrimp, Alaskan salmon, local honey, hot sauces, rubs, dips, marinera, dog treats, boiled peanuts and pecans, elderberry syrup and so much more are available each and every week.

Occasional vendors joining us this week include Steephill Design and their maple syrup, directly from their Vermont farm. Unbelievable Egg Roll returns this week, and Riverwood Candles will have their soy candles in a wide variety of seasonal flavors. Bark N Bake returns this week, too, with treats for your best friend.

Jim Barcaro will be providing entertainment.
