Safety First at Fernandina Beach Market Place

The Fernandina Beach Market Place returned to their Downtown location on June 6th. They are  following the guidelines of the Florida Dept. of Health and the CDC. The market is limiting the number of patrons within the market and may at times have to close or restrict entrance. With that in mind, some patrons may want to visit the market during the slower times of 9 to 10:30 a.m. and noon to 1 p.m. All market vendors will be wearing masks and sanitizing areas/objects frequently touched. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the market.

The market asks all patrons to practice social distancing and follow everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. It is suggested by the CDC that everyone wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose when in public, cover your cough and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow, and wash/sanitize your hands frequently. Please DO NOT attend the market if you have a fever or are experiencing any symptoms of illness.

Please note that the CDC advises that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.  Patrons should evaluate their risk when determining whether to attend the market as any interaction with the general public in your daily activities can pose an elevated risk of being exposed.
