The Pickers Market is opening up today, September 15 at the location we all knew as Trailer Park Collectibles until last year. We went to take a quick look and were amazed at the upgrades and decorations done to this beautiful location. More than a dozen local permanent exhibitors collaborate in rooms, nooks and crannies with a wide variety of eclectic collectibles, decorations, furnishings, memorabilia and paintings.

As the exhibitors were frantically pricing the merchandise to be ready for the opening, we got a little picture peek of what seems to be a very welcome downtown shopping attraction, good for at least an hour of eye-popping wow moments, just looking at all the “stuff” on display for sale and wondering about their history. For a man who is not really into shopping, I must admit that the Pickers Market is interesting; not stuffed, but nicely spaced, airy and full of natural light playing in through the windows.

The concept of collaborating is not new but works perfectly in a slow economy, as costs are easier to carry when shared and marketing as a group attracts a much wider audience.

If visiting historic downtown Fernandina Beach, make sure to include a visit to the Pickers Market at 201 Alachua Street, anchored by 3 of our favorite eateries in downtown; Arte’s Pizza, Café Karibo and the Crab Trap.
