This is the 2nd Saturday of the month and the Fernandina Beach Arts Market will be open right next door to Fernandina Beach’s popular farmers market on North Seventh Street. About 20 artists and craftsmen will be displaying their variety of art including furniture, wood working, apparel, jewelry, handbags, quilts, pottery, and more.
When you think of summer, you think of swimming, boating, picnics, and s’mores around the campfire, and you’ll find plenty of summer’s traditional flavors at the farmers market in historic, downtown Fernandina Beach, so be sure to set aside time to visit both markets.
Look for some occasional vendors on July 22nd including Mrs. Cook, The Muffin Lady, and her fresh-from-the-oven chocolate, apple cinnamon, and blueberry muffins. Sunshine Grindz is back in the Market Place farmers market this week with their popular Hawaiian poke after a much-needed vacation, and Devon is returning with her lovely, scented soy candles.
Seasonal produce at the farmers market includes early corn, beans, peas, some late onions, tomatoes, summer squash, and lots of different peppers. Cabbage Creek Farm is now growing watermelons, eggplant and spaghetti squash, too.
Join us for the arts and the crafts, or visit the farmers market for the food, or simply to try some of summer’s best flavors like the new s’more handmade ice cream sandwiches and s’more flavored toffee.
Both markets are open rain or shine, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and your well-behaved, leashed pets are welcome.
For more information, you can find both markets on facebook.
