Kombucha Comes to Amelia Island’s Farmers Market


Kombucha is coming to the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market. Brought to you by Moonbooch, they brew with wild, native Yopaun tea and work with local farms and purveyors to ensure the freshest ingredients in their tasty selection of kombucha. They also reduce waste with their reusable glass program.

One of the market’s newest vendors, Fulford Gardens, is thriving on Saturday mornings with their reusable food wrap. Perfect as a gift for Mother’s Day, these cotton fabrics are infused with beeswax, pine rosin, and jojoba oil. They are ideal for wrapping cheese, bread, a sandwich, or a leftover half of a lime; simply wrap the food and the warmth of your hands will conform the wrap to the desired shape. Washable and reusable, you can now keep foods fresh and help save the environment. Mention this article for a “market special”.

Great Harvest Bread Company is bringing their adorable Bunny Bread (pictured) for Mother’s Day – get there early to get your’s, they will sell out early. Other great gift ideas are available at Scents Amelia’s soy candles, Jaxma Orchids potted orchids, and colorful flower baskets from Sevenblooms Nursery.

There will also be nearly 30 vendors of arts and crafts, located adjacent to the farmers market, where you will surely find that perfect gift.

The farmers market is located in downtown Fernandina Beach, on North Seventh Street, between Alachua and Centre Streets. The markets are open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and your well behaved, leashed pets are welcome.
