If you shop at the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market, you don’t want to miss the market on April 28, 2018. There will be no farmers market on May 5, 2018, due to the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. This is your last chance for two weeks to pick up fresh seasonal produce, wild caught shrimp, or arts and crafts until Mother’s Day Weekend! Be sure to pre-order your shrimp from Eddie and Debbie at Chesser’s Seafood because with Shrimp Festival around the corner… they will sell out early. Call (904) 509-3337 to reserve your catch. Don’t forget your four-legged friends. Bark n Bake is a specialty bakery providing the wholesome goodness your dog deserves. They use only human grade ingredients with no harmful additives or preservatives. These are the fresh dog treats you would make for your best friend, if you had the time. Some of the ingredients include chicken breast, organic peanut butter, fresh lavender buds, stone ground oats, carrots, sweet potatoes, apples and coconut oil.
Due to the popularity of the fresh baked bunny bread Great Harvest sold at Easter, they will have Teddy bear bread just in time for Mother’s Day. This is a fun shaped bread made from only five wholesome ingredients. This is Great Harvest Bakery’s signature bread. It is no wonder why it is their most popular bread, it is a perfect blend of five pure ingredients 100% whole wheat flour, pure honey, filtered water, salt, and yeast. Stop by their booth to pre-order for Mother’s Day.
The “Man behind the Recipes” Ibraham Mahem will be joining his wife Jen at their African Love Kitchen booth this Saturday. Chef Ibraham specializes in authentic Tanzanian cuisine.
