April 26, 2014 will be the last Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market before the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival, so join us and stock up, because you will be without the friendliest farmers’ market in Florida on May 3, 2014! Our vendors know this and are prepared ti bring plenty of fresh produce, baked breads and pastries, honey, plants, jams, jellies, sauces, cheeses, meats and more to hold you over.
Also on April 26th we will be celebrating a very special birthday! Felix Jones spends every
Saturday morning at the Market Place with his basket of pineapples, peanuts and News-Leaders, and we are getting a giant birthday caked to celebrate! Gabriel Arnold will be blowing on the saxophone, and he is sharing his PA with other local musicians who want to bring their instrument and invite Felix to sit in on a song or two with his harmonica.
In addition to over 30 booths of natural products, organic delights and delicious treats, our sister market, the Fernandina Beach Arts Market, will be open with an addition 25 arts and craft vendors right next door!
The Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival will be on hand to tease you with the upcoming 13th season where you should expect the unexpected. World renowed artists will be performing in unique and intimate setting all around Amelia Island, with 13 concerts being held between May 3, 2014 and June 1, 2014.
We have so much going on at the Fernandina Beach Market Place, we have invited massage students from Florida State College at Jacksonville. They won’t just be on hand to tell you about the popular massage classes FSCJ offers, but they are also bringing along some of their massage chairs to show you how great the program is by demonstrating what they have learned by offering free massages!
