This week Bacon’s Select Produce, a hydroponic farm located in Oceanway, Florida, will be bringing pots herbal plants in addition to their lettuce, kale and seedless cucumbers. Lady Bug Gourmet, our jam and jelly vendor, has expanded with a farm full of chickens so now she has added a new booth, Happy Kluckers. These fun colored, organic eggs come from free range chickens with no hormones, no antiobiotics, and no steroids.
Look for unique, hand crafted tables from Dock Pieces by William Halley. William rescues vintage furniture. He then takes these quality pieces made from real wood and updates the color and functionality of the piece. In other words, they take tired furniture from drab to fab!
Pete the Artist is back in Fernandina with his nautical paintings shared on palm fronds. These make amazing gifts from Florida and every one is a hand-painted original.
Tressa Linzy graduated University of Georgia with a degree in textile design. Her patterns and colors are derived from self-awareness in the everyday small details. She hopes to induce joy with her home furnishing accessories,, apparel, wallpaper, and custom fabrics that are available by the yard. Look for pillows, tea towels, scarves and other linens in her booth.
Alain Lelait will be providing this week’s musical entertainment and our Booth With a Cause will be Relay For Life. They will have plenty of information about their event coming to Fernandina Beach High School on October 6, 2018.
