Fernandina Beach, Florida, is home to likely the friendliest farmers market in North Florida. Located in the historic district, the Fernandina Beach Market Place offers about 40 booths of organic, home grown or hand crafted natural products for you and your family. With 4th of July on Wednesday, you will want to pick up some fresh produce and tasty meats from our vendors. Check out JD Beef who brings grass fed beef with no hormones and no antibiotics. Their alll-natural Angus cattle is raised from birth to harvest in a humane environment. Chesser seafood will have fresh, wild caught shrimp, and Upstream Seafood will have salmon fillets, salmon dip, scallops, and crab legs.
Looking for a desserts? One of our newest vendors, Good Dough Donuts makes full-sized doughnuts with glazes that are all handmade from scratch. Using only the best ingredients, they use a brioche style yeast dough that is springy, but also rich, buttery and tender with a slight chew. Another sweet dessert option is EPIC Creamery by Sugar Flour Pastries. They are returning this week with their handcrafted ice cream sandwiches and tubs. These delicious treats are big enough to share, but taste so good you won’t want to. Stop by and check out their creative flavors and see which one won their 4th of July contest. Was it Apple Pie a la mode, or S’mores?
Don’t forget Fido this 4th of July. With all of the noise from fireworks, you may want to pick up a calming bag of lavender bites for your four legged friends. Bark N Bake offers a variety of tasty puppy and dog treats made with all natural, organic ingredients without pesticides and additives. They use human quality, natural ingredients such as barley, oats, apples, bananas, blueberries, carrots, green beans, honey, kale, peanut butter, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, spinach, grass fed beef and hormone free chicken to create delicious and healthy treats that both you and your furry friend will love.
