Atlantic Beach Farmers Market

Jack Russel Park, 850 Seminole Rd, Atlantic Beach, FL

The mission of the Atlantic Beach Farmers Market is to promote local food and local artists.  To build a community where we work and live.  We support our local economy, increase market opportunities for farmers and small businesses and provide access to an assortment of local and regional sourced products. 

We want to create a destination, a place where the market serves as a setting for the community and visitors to the area to gather and learn something new from a farmer, grower, producer, or exhibitor. 

Let us know what you’re up to this weekend, we’d love to hear from you! What do you like to do over the weekend? Do you have any hip happenings to share with us? We would love to hear … email me at [email protected].
