Fernandina Beach Marketplace: Amelia Island’s Farmers Market
Take in the aromas of sweetbreads and rich coffee beans while you thumb through artists’ prints and browse handmade jewelry. There’s something to be said about buying directly from the person who grew the food or crafted the goods you’re purchasing!
From unique woodworks to all-natural bath and body products, you’re bound to find a one-of-a-kind souvenir to remember your trip. See for yourself what makes this market one of the best things to do on Amelia Island!
Farmers Market Vendors
Our biggest advice is to go to the market hungry! You don’t want to miss out on seasonal snacks, farm-fresh produce, and sinfully decadent desserts. Marketplace vendors range from African Love Kitchen who specializes in East African cuisine to Topsy Toffee who sells, as the name suggests, old-fashioned toffee. You’re in for quite the treat!
In addition to tasty snacks and fresh ingredients, the Marketplace also features a number of vendors who specialize in all-natural products such as Amelia Naturals’ aromatic massaging candles and Element Earth Works’ bath soaps, lotions, and scrubs.
Arts Market Vendors
Woodworkers, local artists, craftsmen and women, and jewelry makers bring their eclectic tastes and styles to the table for your viewing and purchasing pleasure! The Arts Market’s vendors include Adrian’s Wood, Connie’s Chimes, Liz Lind Editions, Reserve Glass by Gail, and so much more. Find yourself, or someone you love, a unique gift!
You can attend the local markets year-round, rain or shine!
