Summer feels like it is coming to a close with the neighborhood children returning to school, but activity at the farmers market in Fernandina Beach continues at full pace. Each week, the amazing vendors of the Market Place continue to expand, enhance, and strengthen their product lines. Here are a few recent updates:
-Cross Creek Honey has recently included a fresh batch of honeycomb that is absolutely beautiful!
-Amelia Pasta, has returned to the farmers market on a weekly basis. Their fettuccine, linguini, penne and orzo are made with real vegetables and hand milled spices. Naturally low on the glycemic index, these pastas have no artificial ingredients and no fillers. When you stop by their booth, be sure to ask about their frequent shoppers card.
-Bottega by Liz Grenamyer is a popular catering company and their new slogan is “prepared meals with style”. They attend the farmers market every Saturday and also offer delicious dips and crackers such as their Kentucky cucumber dip served on a crunchy crostini.
-Olive My Pickle, a long time vendor at the Market Place, has introduced a fermented radish and red ginger sauerkraut to compliment their line of pickles, hummus, and olives. Owners Shai and Charlotte are on a mission to spread awareness about gut health and they truly enjoy sharing their raw-food products that are naturally full of bio-available nutrients and enzymes, live cultures, and pro-biotics.
Whether you come to the Market Place every Saturday, or you haven’t been down in awhile, we invite you to join us on North Seventh Street in historic Fernandina Beach, Florida, every Saturday of the year. We are open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m, rain or shine. This week brings the return of about 20 arts and craft booths in the adjacent Fernandina Beach Arts Market, and our musician is Jen Burns.
