Buy Your Produce at the Jacksonville Farmers Market

The Jacksonville Farmers Market, a local tradition since 1938, is Florida’s oldest farmer’s market.   There, over 200 farmers and vendors offer the widest and freshest selection of fruits and veggies available at a fraction of grocery store prices.  The market is also your place to purchase unique, ethnic, and specialty items not easily found elsewhere.

Browsing the shopping area is a delightful experience and a trip back to yesteryear, when most of our food items were grown and purchased locally.  My new goal – to buy one  fruit or veggie weekly that I rarely or never use and prepare it!

If you go:  The Jacksonville Farmers Market is located at 1810 Beaver Street, one mile West of downtown, and is open from predawn to dusk 365 days a year.  While you’re there, sample some of that fresh produce at Andy’s Farmer’s Market Grill, open for breakfast, lunch or take-out.
