We have two new vendors premiering at the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market this week. Join us as we welcome Beeswax Food Wraps and Tea Nation’s organic tea blends to Florida’s friendliest farmers market.
Beeswax Food Wraps are reusable cotton fabrics infused with beeswax and natural oils that take the place of most plastic wrappings. By conforming to the desired shape simply by the warmth of your hands, this is sure to be a foodie’s favorite in the farmers market.
Tea Nation is serving up hand-crafted organic tea blends geared towards healing. Choose from one of their original blends or work with usem to custom blend your own.
Returning this week are Steephill’s Vermont Maple Syrup and Pat Cook, the Muffin Lady. Mrs. Cook bakes delicious homemade chocolate, blueberry, and apple muffins. Olive My Pickle has their hummus back in stock. Cilantro lemon, jalapeno lemon, and traditional flavors are available. Lady Bug’s homemade jams are introducing a new flavor: chocolate cherry hazelnut, and it is amazing! Be sure to stop by for a free sample.
As the weather gets warmer our seasonal produce will be changing to. Look for fresh cut sunflowers at the Cabbage Creek Farm booth, as well as beets, Brussel sprouts, and radish. Broccoli and cauliflower are still in season, as are cabbage and potatoes. King’s Kountry Produce is still growing their amazing strawberries at their farm in Starke, Florida, and Bacon’s Select Produce has seedless cucumbers and large kale back in production.
The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market is open every Saturday of the year from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., however, the farmers market will not be open on May 5, 2018, due to the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival which is always held the first weekend in May.
Please remember to bring small bills for the convenience of the farmers, producers, and other vendors.
