The Fernandina Beach Arts Market returns to downtown Saturday with a variety of arts and craft booths. Look for wood working, art, apparel, fine and whimsical jewelry, and more. With space for 30 tents of unique, hand-crafted merchandise, the Arts Market is open on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month, adjacent to the weekly farmers market on North Seventh Street between Centre and Alachua Streets. Vendors of the Arts Market are authors and their novels, painters exhibiting their canvas, jewelers displaying their craft, and there is even a bladesmith who makes hand forged knives for cooking, camping, and hunting.
The Fernandina Beach Market Place is a weekly farmers market with an additional 30 tents of pies, fresh baked breads, and seasonal produce. You will find wild-caught shrimp, hormone free beef and chicken, goat milk soaps and cheeses, and much more. There will be flavored mini cupcakes, dehydrated organic fruits, fresh squeezed lemonade, and more. Ganas Farm returns this week with pecans, boiled peanuts, and pecan oil. Joy of Garlic returns this week with their low sodium marinara, salad dressings, and chopped artichoke salad. St. Mary’s Bee Farm will also be returning Saturday with their local, nutritious, and tasty honeys.
Special guests include musician Joshua Cook with entertainment, and All American Gutter and T-Mobile are this week’s market sponsors who will be on-site to answer your gutter and cellular questions.
For more information, both markets can be found on Facebook, and they will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine.
