The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market is open rain or shine. Come explore over 40 tents of seasonal produce, fresh baked breads, local wild-caught shrimp, natural dog treats, soy candles, honey, jams and jellies, pickles, olives, sea salts, dips, ice cream and more. As our farmers move from winter to springtime you will see a change in the vegetables grown. The cold weather veggies will be tapering off and the warmer weather varieties of beans, onions, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and squash become readily available.
Gia’s Garden, an organic booth that provides flat breads, nut butters and elixers is back this week, as well as the Muffin Lady and her apple, blueberry and cdhocolate muffins. Jay’s Marketplace is also back this week with their jars of chopped olive salad and olive juice, which is perfect for martinis.
Music this week is provided by the lovely and talented Jenn Burns. The farmers market is open every Saturday of the year, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., except for May 5, 2018, when the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival and the Fernandina Pirates Club take over the city for four days of family fun! On April 14th, look for the return of the Fernandina Beach Arts Market that is held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month.
