Local Musicians

Share

We are always seeking local talent to help entertain those visiting our farmers’ market. Several different musicians have blessed us with their amazing talents!

This is a great opportunity for you to be heard, while earning a few tips, and this often leads to some nice paying gigs for musicians from Fernandina Beach, Yulee, Callahan and other locations in Nassau County and NE Florida.

Playing at our market is FREE for the musicians, though bringing a tent to keep you and your equipment out of the elements is a wise investment.

Welcome Musicians,

We enjoy presenting local musicians to our Fernandina Beach community. Here are a few things you need to know before you apply:

-We do not pay. This is a "tips only" atmosphere; however, you are encouraged to sell your original EPs or CDs at the Market Place.

-The gig is from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and you are welcome to take as many breaks as needed.

-We offer electricity, but you are on your own to bring PA equipment, extension cords, tent, table, chair, music stands, etc...

-This is a family friendly market and the music needs to be appropriate.

-Music volume must remain low enough for neighboring vendors to have a normal conversation with their customers.

First and foremost this is a farmers’ market and all of our marketing is directed at promoting our vendors that provide fresh alternatives to grocery store products. This means Amelia Island residents and visitors have an option to reduce the carbon footprint left on our environment by shopping from local farmers and producers. Buying local means less shipping, fresher products and most of the money stays right here in Nassau County.

To keep the market fresh and fun, the general atmosphere surrounding the Market Place is enhanced when we share live, local music. This truly adds to the ambiance surrounding the friendliest farmers’ market in Florida!

Jeff comes all the way from Toledo, Ohio to play the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island, and when he is in Fernandina Beach, he plays our farmers’ market, too. We are thrilled to have him and many other talented musicians share their music with us on Saturday mornings.

And from time to time, we even have music “in the round”, this is a jam session where everyone is invited to bring their instruments and join in the fun!

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an audition to be in the market, email Judie at info@FernandinaBeachMarketPlace.com.
