Farmers Market Open Saturday in Fernandina for Independence Day


The local farmers market will be open in Fernandina Beach Saturday for your Independence Day needs. It is always a lot of fun when you can pick up fresh and healthy food choices from a local farmers market on Saturday. This market will have what you need to make your holiday cookout a joyous occasion. Folks in Florida are big on grilling almost every weekend, but the July 4th holiday gives backyard grill masters a chance to put their skills to the test and impress their family and friends. While you may still find hot dogs on the neighbor’s grill, many will be honing their talent with fine cuts of meat, salmon or local caught shrimp. And you will find all three in the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market.

Image how popular a blackberry or peach cobbler made from the fresh fruits available at Kings Kountry Produce would be at your cookout. Or fresh corn-on-the-cob roasted on the grill. Fresh pineapple, onions, and peppers are great on the grill. Pick up fresh guacamole and salsa from King of All Guacamole, or free range chicken from A Patient Journey Farm, and add some cherry tomatoes from Bacon’s Select Farms to the skewer for some delightful shish-kabobs. Try adding some shredded jalapeno to your traditional Cole slaw recipe, or pick up a flavor packet from Simply Savory Dips for a quick and easy pie filling or appetizer.
