Jacksonville Farmers Market: A Photo Tour of Local Flavors

 

Farmers Market Produce

Jacksonville Farmers Market, Florida’s oldest farmers market, sits outdoors under a handful of wide steel rooftops. In this sheltered space, there’s room for over 200 vendors to sell their produce directly to customers (many of which include local chefs who buy ingredients for their menus daily, at wholesale prices). Produce varies seasonally and includes fresh vegetables, fruit, fried peanuts, spices, and crafts. The market opens before sunrise and stays open until sunset, 365 days a year. It’s the largest produce market in Northern Florida.

On May 3, Andy’s Farmers Market Grill will have its grand opening at 6 AM. The grill will be open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, serving breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages. Grab a waffle or sandwich from its to-go window and eat while you shop, or relax over a sit-down meal at its outdoor table seating.

Farmers Market Location

Jacksonville Farmers Market is located at 1810 West Beaver Street. It was moved from downtown Jacksonville to its current, more spacious location in 1938.
