Independence Day at the Fernandina Farmers’ Market


Independence Day at the Fernandina Farmers' MarketThere is plenty to do on Amelia Island this 4th of July and the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market is a great place to start.

New this week is the Savannah Oatmeal Company. This start-up food and beverage company from Savannah, Georgia, produces flavored, ready-to-eat oatmeal and they will be at the Market Place on the first Saturdays of each month. They are at the forefront of promoting healthy and tasty breakfast meals to the average person who lives a fast-paced life and doesn’t have the time to prepare a natural and nutritious breakfast.

Ready for some sweet summer party inspiration? What’s more American than Apple Pie? Cherry Pie? Berry-filled Pie? Or rather, pie in general? Me, Myself & Pies wants to help you spread the red, white and blue this Independence Day with a festive array of desserts that will sweeten up the dinner table long after the barbecue has been cleared away.

Lizzie’s Cheese Straws offers an elegant twist on a timeless tradition lacing a rich cheddar cheese flavor with a subtle butter taste, topped off with just enough of a peppery spice to give it a ‘lil kick of Southern attitude. Baked into a straw-like cracker, Lizzie’s Cheese Straws is a tasty alternative to your typical chip or cracker, and ideal for your July 4th parties!

We invite you to visit these, and about 25 other food vendors, this July 4th for live music, tasty treats and costumed Pirates!

Entertainment will be provided by the Hambone Stumps Band, and as our farmers’ market continues to grow with new vendors, this will be the final blood drive hosted by the Fernandina Pirates Club, Inc. on North Seventh Street. So, “put a little money in your pocket and come on down to the Farmers’ market, open Saturdays from 9 to 1:00.”

We are located on North Seventh Street, in historic Fernandina Beach, between Alachua and Centre Streets. Open rain or shine, your well-behaved, leashed pets are welcome to join you for a morning of neighborly fellowship and fresh, healthy foods.
