Sunshine Grindz and Lizzie’s Cheese Straws are BACK!


The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market will be open on July 21st, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine. Located on North Seventh Street between Alachua and Centre Streets, the farmers market offers about 40 booths of fresh seasonal produce, baked breads, honey, jams, beef, salmon, shrimp, and much more.

Returning this week with a seasonal flavor is Tucker with Topsy Toffee. His s’mores of July flavored toffee is made with gluten-free graham crackers and marshmallows atop his popular milk chocolate. Jay’s Marketplace is back this Saturday with their chopped olive salad which is great in a muffuletta, or mix it with cream cheese and spread it on a cracker for an amazing appetizer. Their olive juice is perfect for an afternoon of dirty martinis, and Bacon’s Select Produce has brought back their popular European seedless cucumbers due to customer demand.

Come and get your natural bath and beauty supplies at the farmers market this Saturday with foot reflexology products from Amelia Naturals, all natural lotions and soaps from Element Earth Works, and this week we have a new vendor with Hairy Farmpit Girls. They will be bringing 100% goat milk soap, goat milk lotion, beard oil, linen spray, lip balm, sugar scrub, and doo-doo spray.

We have a special treat in our musician this week. Dylan Bailey is a local singer-songwriter, from Fernandina Beach. He has recorded and produced five albums, and is the Youth Worship Leader at First Coast Christian Center, in Jacksonville. Dylan’s primary instrument is an acoustic guitar, which he has been playing for over 10 years. If he’s not playing a calming, instrumental piece, he’s singing an original song he wrote.

Come on out Saturday morning and hang out in the fresh morning air under the Spanish moss draped oak trees of old Florida.
