Summer’s Seasonal Delights


Summer's Seasonal DelightsSummer is the season to cookout with family and friends while trying new recipes using the flavors a seasonal harvest brings. Corn on the cob, a variety of beans and peas, watermelons, cantaloupes and a plethora of berries are just a few summer favorites you will find at the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market on N. 7th Street, on Amelia Island.

June 29th includes beautiful bouquets of summer’s mixed flowers, giant sunflowers and delicious cherry tomatoes from Cabbage Creek Farms, located in Nassau County.

Also, we are excited to announce, “Dips2go is coming home!” Owners Sherry and Mitch have been selling their locally made, all natural dips, rubs and spice mixes at this location for six years. Three years ago Dips2go introduced nine varieties of all natural rubs that quickly became wildly popular and a staple at the farmers market in Fernandina. Last year Dips2go opened a storefront, River City Gourmet, at the Jacksonville Landing and has expanded their terrific product line. They now offer five flavors of infused olive oils (garlic, basil, lemon, rosemary, blood orange and Greek olive oil), a 12 year aged balsamic vinegar, salts of the world, tomato couscous, wild rice mix, and flavored pankos. They plan to bring a fabulous selection of dips, oils, balsamic vinegar, sea salts of the world, rubs to the market on a weekly basis.

Bring your family, friends, neighbors and well behaved, leashed pets, and join us on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, in historic, downtown Fernandina Beach, Florida. Music this week is provided by up and coming folk band, “Lumberjack Party.”

Our friendly farmers’ market is open each and every Saturday, rain or shine, near Jack and Diane’s, on Amelia Island. For more information visit, find us on facebook or call (904) 557-8229.
