Memorial Day Weekend is looking to be a little rainy, but the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market and the Fernandina Beach Arts Market are both open rain or shine. May 26, 2018, will offer over 60 booths of seasonal produce, fresh baked breads, hand-crafted artisan foods, and arts and crafts. Open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., the markets are located on North Seventh Street in historic Fernandina Beach between Centre and Alachua Streets.
The Fernandina Beach Arts Market, located adjacent to the farmers market will also be open this Saturday with an amazing variety of jewelry makers, artists, wood working, bird houses, hand blown glass, pottery, apparel and more.
Crime vs Seniors is our Booth With a Cause. They are a unique and effective group of advocates for Florida’s seniors. These volunteers, known as Senior Sleuths, investigate and attempt to resolve complaints they receive from seniors in our community… all at no cost to the consumer.
Alain Lelait will be strumming and singing your favorite classic rock songs; all of our musicians play for tips only.
We are welcoming a new product in the farmers market with gourmet mini-donuts by our newest vendor, Baked Amelia. Available in four flavors or a combination box, these tasty snacks are cooked in an air fryer and without oil. Tea Nation is also returning Saturday with a line of flavors designed by their Nutritionist/Owner with your good health in mind. Also returning is our new weekly vendor Element Earth Works; they offer a complete line of bath and beauty products like soaps, lotions and room sprays. After selling out by 10:30 a.m. last week, Seven Trees Nursery will be bringing a much larger supply of fresh tomato, cherry tomatoes, jalapeno, bell pepper and other fresh vegetable plants.
The farmers market is open every Saturday, and the Arts Market is open on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month. Come on out for fellowship, fresh food, great home and gift ideas, and more. Florida’s friendliest farmers market also welcomes your well-behaved, leashed pets. For more information, find either market on facebook or the World Wide Web.
