Whether you are here on vacation, live here year ’round, or on spring break, great weather is expected Saturday and you don’t want to miss the Fernandina Beach Arts Market and Market Place farmers market on Saturday. Both of these markets feature local art and craft talent, farmers, ranchers, and producers. Many of these vendor’s products complement each other beautifully, too.
Try Joy of Garlic’s Florida Fusion sauce and marinade on Chesser Seafood’s wild caught shrimp. Bacon’s Select Produce has salad mix that pairs perfectly with the seasonal produce available at Kings Kountry Produce. Lizzie’s Cheese Straw crumbs really wake up a meatloaf made with hormone and antibiotic free JD Beef. Pecan oil from Ganas Pecan Company is an excellent dip for garlic sticks from Ferra’s Bakery, and don’t miss the Red Flag hot sauces that are great when topping black eyed peas from Boatright Farms.
The Arts Market, located adjacent to the farmers market, will have nearly 30 booths of art, crafts, stained glass, paintings, woodworking, glassware, apparel, fine and whimsical jewelry, and so much more.
The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market is located on North Seventh Street in historic downtown. Both markets are open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine. Well-behaved, leashed dogs are permitted to join you.
