The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market will be celebrating Father’s Day on Saturday June 16, 2018, with a variety of fine food vendors that are perfect for Dad. If your dad is an outdoorsman, we are sure he will appreciate the new line of outdoor products from Elemental Earth Works. The will be introducing a mosquito fearing citronella candle, natural bug repellant spray, and a fresh camping soap.
In a pickle for gift ideas? Lady Bug Gourmet has been approved to sell their homemade pickles. They will be offering a sassy bread and butter, and kickin’ pickles that are a habanero dill, in addition to their jams, jellies, pie fillings, and ice cream toppings.
One of our most faithful vendors has been Lulu’s at the Thompson House. Now that the restaurant is under new ownership, we hope you will join us at the farmers market as we welcome members of the JWR Group. These three local friends also own the bowling alley in Yulee. Wes, the managing partner in Lulu’s, and his wife have over 20 years in the hospitality industry. Stop by and meet Wes and Anke as they continue to sell their customary pimento cheese spread in both regular and spicy flavors, as well as their popular crab cakes.
Returning this week are Rose with her An Unbelievable Egg Rolls and Beef Jerky, Tea Nation, and Fulford Gardens with their amazing beeswax food wraps.
