Beaches Green Market

Penman Park | 321 Penman Road Jacksonville Beach

If you’ve never been to the Beaches Green Market you are missing out! The vendors are local so you know you’re supporting the community by shopping local! There are veggies, sweets, calzones, fresh meat and seafood, herbs, plants, kombucha, and the list goes on! It’s held every single Saturday and is a stop I like to make!

Vendors at the market sell a wide selection of in-season, local and organic produce, local all-natural meats, free-range eggs, cut flowers, locally roasted organic coffees, edible plants and trees, orchids, handcrafted teas, gluten-free and vegan foods, handcrafted cheeses, locally made desserts, freshly baked bread, local honey, and other seasonal delights. 

Green Market Fresh Tips
Enjoy bringing home Farm Fresh Food home to your table from the Beaches Green Markets?  – here are our family tips for a great visit to the market!
The best selection is often early in the morning.
Understanding seasonal availability will help you plan your shopping list. If you don’t see a specific fruit or vegetable that you are looking for, ask the farmer about its growing season.
Please don’t squeeze, strip or manhandle the fruits and vegetables. It just creates bumps and bruises on the surface.
A reusable bag or basket is the perfect way to cart around all your fruits and vegetables.
Vendors love when customers ask questions.. Asking about the growing process or how to prepare something is a great way to get to know the farmer too.
