Spring Fling at Nocatee Farmers Market


Although the temperatures this week have been unseasonably cold, this past weekend’s weather full of warmth and sunshine. Even with the threat of seasonal showers, the rainy weather mostly held off for weekend activities.

The Nocatee Farmers Market celebrated the season of spring at the March Farmers Market festival Saturday, March 19 – one day shy of the official start of spring on March 20.

The Spring Fling Festival featured a petting zoo, live Bluegrass music on the main stage by the Big Cypress Bluegrass Band, and a visit from the unofficial ambassador to springtime himself, the Easter Bunny, who took time out of his busy schedule to pose for pictures with the kiddos.

Vendors included Big Bang Books, Stitch Artistry, Easter spring bows from Michele’s Unique Bowtique, pet adoptions from the St. Johns County Pet Center, and representatives from the Ponte Vedra Wellness Center who were on site to answer questions and offer free chair massages.

Next month, Farmers Market-goers can enjoy a spectacle of thrilling entertainment with the Nocatee Farmers Market: Cirque du Nocatee April 16.

Cirque du Nocatee will feature acrobatic artists, contortionists, stilt-walking, aerial hoop performers, and more.

Free face painting will be available, along with a bounce house and food trucks and over 80 local vendors selling everything from produce, to jewelry, herbs, unique foods and more.

The Nocatee Farmers Market takes place on the third Saturday of every month from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Farmers Market Field, 100 Marketside Ave., Ponte Vedra. For more information, visit www.nocatee.com.
