The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market will be open Saturday, November 4, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine. This week features nearly 40 tents of seasonal produce, fresh baked breads and pastries, and a wide variety of specialty foods and natural bath products.
Amelia Pasta, a long standing staple at the farmers market is holding a Pasta Blowout Sale – all in-stock flavors of penne, linguini, fettuccini, and orzo are on sale for only $5.00 per bag, no rainchecks.
Boatright Farm’s crops have rotated to fall harvests and they still have plenty of squash in addition to their turnip and mustard greens, as well as some nice heads of cabbage.
Camp Craft Cocktails is turning out to be one of our most popular booths. They sell jars of quality ingredients that are perfect for sharing with friends or sipping alone. Simply add 12 ounces of your favorite spirit, chill for three days and enjoy eight servings. Flavors include Aromatic Citrus, Bloody Mary, or Hibiscus Ginger Lemon.
Our Booth with a Cause this week is the Salvation Army’s Hope House. They are dedicated to restoring those in need to a place of productivity and self-sufficiency, values that are necessary for a community to grow and prosper. Stop by their booth to learn more about what they are doing in our community.
We hope you will come downtown with your family and friends and sample a taste of what the Market Place offers. Live entertainment will be provided by Melrose, and well-behaved, leashed pets are welcome to join you.
