Enjoy a family friendly atmosphere at the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market, where locals love its historic location under the Spanish moss draped oaks and cedars found on N. 7th Street in downtown Fernandina Beach.
Meet fascinating local farmers and small business owners while you shop in the open air among a wide variety of seasonal produce vendors including organic blueberries, specialty lettuces and salad mixes, Georgia peaches, corn, Vidalia onions, eggplants, squash and more. There will be vendors sharing their organic products, specialty items, fresh baked breads, desserts and pastries, gourmet jams and jellies, hand crafted dog treats, goat cheeses, all natural beef, plants, fresh cut flowers, honey and more.
Returning twice a month is River City Gourmet, formerly known as Dips 2 Go. Located in downtown Jacksonville, Sherry’s “foodie haven” has a wide variety of specialty gourmet dips mixes, rubs, French vinegars, soups, flavored Himalayan salts (think pink) and much more that she brings along to the Market Place. Her bread dipping spices are fantastic! Her award winning olive oils, and balsamic vinegars are said to be the best in North Florida.
Bring a chair or blanket and throw it out under the shade trees while you share a spectacular Florida morning with your friends and neighbors. The talented Larry Lemeir will be strumming your favorite tunes, and your well behaved, leashed pets are always welcome.
The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market is open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. every Saturday, rain or shine. There is plenty of free parking throughout downtown and near the market area, so come on out to the shore and make a day of it!
