April 22nd is the fourth Saturday of the month, and that means the Fernandina Beach Arts Market will be joining the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market. Located on North Seventh Street in the historic district of Amelia Island, both markets are open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine.
The Arts Market is happy to announce that local Artist Chuck Hall will be making his first appearance this week to display hand carved, original art from a variety of woods including cottonwood bark and butternut. His designs include seahorses, sea turtles, wood spirits, and other small items.
Another vendor making their inaugural showing in the Arts Market is Kathy Lewis of Emily’s Rock Garden. Started by Emily’s grandmother, Kathy, these hand-painted rocks became a way to raise money to help children receive alternative autism therapies such as horseback riding. At the age of 4, Emily was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and horseback riding has been one of her most beneficial therapies.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and the Women’s Centre of Jacksonville, which serves Nassau County, will be our weekly “Booth with a Cause”. We invite you to visit both markets and enjoy musical entertainment by Jenn Burns.
The farmers market will be closed on May 6th for the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival.
For more information, both markets can be found on facebook.
