Plenty of "buzz" about the Farmer's Market in Fernandina this week as hundreds of local bees found their way to the downtown honey vendor.
There was plenty of “buzz” about the Farmer’s Market in historic, downtown Fernandina Beach this week as hundreds of local bees found their way to N. 7th Street to check out the Cross Creek Honey vendor who has been with the market since it re-opened in September. Pick up a copy of November 7th’s Newsleader, they published an article about the honey bees and the Amelia Island Market Place written Pat Foster-Turley on Wednesday. Come sample the honey and see for yourself why the Amelia Island bees are attracted to this honey exhibit. It could just be a sign of how high the quality of their honey truly is! Sold in 2 ounce, 12 ounce, 1 pound and 3 pound sizes, fresh and tasty honey provides a long list of health benefits to humans such as providing natural energy, a quick cure for the common hangover and most recently honey is the main ingredient in the Hybernation Diet.
Many of our local restaurants buy their produce directly from our farmers, and you can, too. Come see what wonderful gifts of the earth are brought to the Market Place this week from some of Northeast Florida farms including Boatright Farms, Twinn Bridges, Cabbage Creek, Bacon’s Select and KVY Farms.
The Amelia Island Market Place is located on N. 7th Street in historic, downtown Fernandina Beach between Centre and Alachua Streets each Saturday from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM. They have nearly 40 farmer’s market vendors to tempt you with the freshest produce, honey, plants, flowers, breads, desserts, dog treats and other deliciousness each week… come see what the “buzz” is all about!
