The kids are back in school, and what better place to find great breakfast items than at the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market to get the youngsters off to a great start each morning? You will find an abundance of ideas to help jump-start your family’s mornings with locally sourced and nutritious foods while shopping this family friendly, outdoor market.
When you are at the Market Place, please ask the vendors for recipe ideas or take a look below to get some tasty ideas:
-Try toasting a slice of multi-grain bread from Great Harvest, and then drizzle it with honey from Cross Creek Honey, or a tasty jam or jelly from Lady Bug Gourmet.
-Grits are a great addition to breakfast, especially when they are grown in Northeast Florida at Congaree and Penn’s farm.
-Nut butters from Sonia at Gaia’s Garden are great when spread over a gluten-free, hand-made biscuit from Dee at Something Good.
-Rudy’s booth, Ferra Bakery, offers easy to serve guava or apple pastries, cinammon rolls, or bagels.
-Saute onions and peppers with some fresh yard eggs from Boatright Family Farms, and serve with sliced Georgia peaches from King’s Kountry Produce.
