February 2013 Brings New Vendors to Farmers Market


Meet the BeekeeperFebruary is a new month and with it comes new vendors to the farmers’ market in historic, Fernandina Beach.

The first Saturday of the month also marks the return of the Bee Keeper, Nancy Gentry; and Doug’s Wild Alaska Salmon.

While Dan Voll plays music, let’s give a big Amelia Island welcome to Alex’s Russian Bakery and Ars Cake Creations. Alex’s Russian Bakery specializes in traditional European pure-rye sourdough breads, and Ars Cake Creations helps you enjoy the sweet life with homemade cakes, truffles and cookies, “Bringing bliss to those who choose to indulge.”

Nancy will bring her virtual hive and answer all of your questions relating to bees and their honey. She is easy to locate, too, just follow the bees to the Cross Creek Honey booth.

Doug, a licensed Coast Guard captain and former Bering Sea crabber of TV’s Deadliest Catch Fame, and his sons fish the Alaskan waters of Bristol Bay for salmon and then return to Fernandina Beach to share with you their fresh, frozen catch.

New Bike Racks in FernandinaNot to go unnoticed, the City of Fernandina Beach has installed bicycle racks at the corner of Centre and N. 7th Streets, just behind the, “Bicycles Not Allowed on the Sidewalks” sign. So, saddle up and head on down to the friendliest farmers’ market in NE Florida… maybe event the whole, entire state!

We are open every Saturday (except for Shrimp Festival Saturday), rain or shine, on N. 7th Street in Fernandina Beach, Florida.
