Last Chance Before Christmas Farmers Market


Last Chance Before Christmas Farmers MarketThis is the final farmers market in downtown Fernandina Beach, Florida, before Christmas! Join us on N. 7th Street and fill your bags with purple eggplants, crispy cabbages, seasonal squash, savory onions and more.

Let me tell you a bit about just a few of our vendors:

JD Beef offers all natural farm fresh Angus beef. Their beef is all natural from free range cows. There are no steroids, no hormones and no antibiotics.

Great Harvest Bread Company is a local bakery offering fresh breads with five simple ingredients: flour, water, fresh yeast, salt and something sweet – usually a local honey.

Bacons Select Produce brings hydroponically grown lettuce with the roots still attached. This means you are getting fresh lettuce that will last longer in your refrigerator.

Amelia Pasta brings homemade pastas in some pretty creative flavors. My favorite is the sweet potato, but others enjoy Orange Szechuan, Wild Mushroom and even gluten free pastas.

My Personal Chef is bring customer favorites for the holidays including Meatloaf, Authentic Italian Meatballs, Baked Eggplant Parmesan, Shrimp Kabobs and more. With time consuming holiday meals coming out of your own kitchen, why not take a night off and enjoy a delicious entree from their’s.

Shepperd’s pepper jelly give away ends this Saturday. Simply put your name and phone number in the basket, and if you win, you receive a decorative basket with your choice of three jars of pepper jelly.

Oh, I could go on and on about our nearly 40 fabulous vendors and the natural and organic products they bring week after week to offer our community the finest gifts from the Earth, but this newspaper only permits me to so much space.

Please join us this, and every Saturday, from 9:00 to 1:00 PM for the friendliest farmers’ market in Florida, the Fernandina Beach Market Place. For more information please find us on facebook or call (904) 557-8229.

Merry Christmas!
