We have a great line-up of vendors and artists for you in downtown Fernandina Beach, Saturday, July 24. Not only will we have the Fernandina Beach Market Place weekly booths full of great farmers market finds like seasonal produce, wild caught shrimp, and fresh baked breads, but we also will have tasty additions like St. Mary’s Bee Ranch, our new honey vendor, the PupCycle ice cream treats for your dogs, and Mad Mike’s Jerky. We hope you will show a big Fernandina Beach welcome to our newest weekly vendor at the farmers market who brings everything goat… goat milk, goat yogurt and goat cheeses such as chevre and queso fresco. Have you ever seen goats play? This vendor is appropriately named, Butthead Farms. They also bring nut and seed butters, common yard eggs and quail eggs, too. In addition, returning booths this week include our vegan peddler, Something Good; our soy candle and wooden wick vendor, Riverwood Candles; JD Beef with chicken, pork, and beef; and Joy of Garlic with their marineras, salad dressings, salsas, and dips.
Your shopping pleasure doesn’t stop with the farmers market, this is the fourth Saturday of the month, so the Fernandina Beach Arts Market will be open adjacent to the farmers market with nearly 30 additional booths of fine art, jewelry, woodworking, apparel, and more. All of the arts and crafts are homemade and hand-crafted. There is no multi-level marketing, imports, or re-sold merchandise to be found here!
This week’s market sponsors include Bath Fitter, whether you’re replacing a bathtub or converting to a shower, they have thousands of options to help you design your new bath. And All American Gutter Protection, who can show you how to keep your gutters free of leaves and clogs for the life of your home. Our Brick-and-Mortar business of the week is Summer House, a locally inspired boutique brokerage that derives its name from a vintage house used to relax and cool down in the summer months.
Please join us on North Seventh Street, historic Fernandina Beach, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., for live music, fellowship, and plain old fun! Your well-behaved, leashed pets are welcome to join us. Learn more at FernandinaBeachMarketPlace.com or FernandinaBeachArtsMarket.com.
