September 13th and 14th, 2013, is the Amelia Island Blues Festival, but no one at the downtown farmers’ market in Fernandina Beach will be singing the blues this Saturday morning when the Market Place is open from 9:00 am to 1:00 PM. Here are just a few things to look forward to:
Wooks Beef Jerky attends the market every week bringing their world famous jerky from Lakeland, Florida. Flavors include teriyaki, hickory, pepper and my personal favorite spicy Cajun.
Ina and her husband, The Dutchman, of Seven Trees Nursery in Jacksonville, Florida, bring a wide variety of house and patio plants to Fernandina. Their succulents, hanging baskets, flowering plants and tropicals are unique, healthy and easy to care for; I find it hard not to buy a new one each and every week.
Moore Pigs, J.D. Beef, An Un-believable Egg Roll, and local restaurants Merge and Kelley’s Courtyard Cafe will also be attending the market on Saturday.
September 14, 2013 will introduce another new vendor to Amelia Island, Florida. Chef Roxy, from Cafe Bleuu in Welaka, will be joining other exhibitors on N. 7th Street with her popular dishes like chicken soup, lasagna, chicken parmesan, blue cheese and quiche.
Music will be provided by locals Joey and Jeanne, with Quality Health joining us to promote their upcoming, free Health Fair, and the Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce will be on hand to answer your questions.
The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market is open every Saturday, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, rain or shine. Well behaved, leashed pets are welcomed, too.
