These markets connect consumers with fresh\, and more often than not organic\, food that is free of the over-processing that plagues most products found in the average supermarket. Even the ability to purchase free-range eggs is a significant opportunity. Recent studies show that the nutritional value of free-range eggs versus caged eggs was greater. It’s the small things that help make a difference. \nAside from the obvious benefit of access to good food\, farmers’ markets can encourage the surrounding residents to get outside and engage in a communal activity. These markets\, with successful placement\, even have the ability to contribute to local culture by providing an arena for local musicians and artisans. They also affect the surrounding economy by keeping consumer’s dollars local. \nIt is our belief that a farmers’ market as the potential to do great good for the community in more ways than one. \n URL:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/events/mid-week-market/2020-09-02/ LOCATION:716 Ocean Blvd\, Atlantic Beach\, FL\, 32233\, United States GEO:30.3322;-81.397666 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=716 Ocean Blvd Atlantic Beach FL 32233 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=716 Ocean Blvd:geo:-81.397666,30.3322 ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Mid-Week-Market.png END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20200902T160000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20200902T190000 DTSTAMP:20200925T001145 CREATED:20170618T012319Z LAST-MODIFIED:20170618T012319Z UID:291530-1599062400-1599073200@staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org SUMMARY:Union Street Farmers Market DESCRIPTION: The Union Street Farmers Market was held for the first time on April 3\,1996. Formed by a dedicated small group of local farmers with the assistance of Ken and Linda McGurn and the City of Gainesville\, the original purpose of the market was twofold: 1] to provide local farmers a new venue to sell their produce at retail prices; and 2] to create a weekly family oriented event in the Union Street entertainment district that would reflect the vibrant diversity of this university community. \n After eleven great years in the Sun Center the market moved to the downtown Bo Diddley Community Plaza. Having evolved into the preeminent weekly event for this area the market now hosts 60 plus vendors each week. \n URL:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/events/union-street-farmers-market/2020-09-02/ LOCATION:111 East University Avenue\, Gainesville\, FL\, 32601\, United States GEO:29.651503;-82.3234669 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=111 East University Avenue Gainesville FL 32601 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=111 East University Avenue:geo:-82.3234669,29.651503 ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/union-streent-fmarket.png END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20200905T083000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20200905T123000 DTSTAMP:20200925T001145 CREATED:20170604T155115Z LAST-MODIFIED:20170604T155115Z UID:292992-1599294600-1599309000@staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org SUMMARY:Old City Farmers Market DESCRIPTION:Come visit the Old City Farmers Market for fresh produce\, baked goods\, hand-crafted items and plants directly from the producers.

No one reason is better than any other\, but each market’s mission is the basis for its rules and operating procedures. \nThe Alachua County Farmers’ Market (ACFM)\, was founded to give growers a place to sell home grown produce directly to the public so they can generate sustainable income from farming. By doing so\, it has enabled many farmers to keep on farming instead of having to take other jobs or to sell their land for development. \nA Growers Only Market\nBecause of this mission\, the ACFM is a grower’s only market. What this means is that the people selling produce\, plants\, and other products at the ACFM must have grown the items themselves. They are NOT allowed to purchase produce from other farms or wholesalers and resell it. That is why there are certain crops\, like asparagus\, that are not available. They simply don’t grow well in Florida. \nWhen you go to the market\, you are meeting real farmers. While they may have some non-farming helpers behind their booths\, there will be at least one person who can tell you how the crops were grown\, whether or not they are organic\, and what variety they are. Plant sellers can tell you whether a particular shrub needs shade or sun and how often it should be watered. \nBy shopping at the ACFM\, you are supporting Florida farmers at the same time as getting wonderful fresh produce and beautiful plants at a great price. We thank you for helping Florida agriculture thrive. \n URL:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/events/alachua-county-farmers-market/2020-09-05/ LOCATION:5920 NW 13th St\, Gainesville\, FL\, 32653\, United States GEO:29.7099833;-82.3534553 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=5920 NW 13th St Gainesville FL 32653 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=5920 NW 13th St:geo:-82.3534553,29.7099833 ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/alachua-fmarket.png END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20200905T100000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20200905T150000 DTSTAMP:20200925T001145 CREATED:20170618T014719Z LAST-MODIFIED:20170618T014719Z UID:292994-1599300000-1599318000@staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org SUMMARY:Riverside Arts Market (RAM) DESCRIPTION:ABOUT THE RIVERSIDE ARTS MARKET \nProduced by Riverside Avondale Preservation\, Inc.\, the Riverside Arts Market is every Saturday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.\, rain or shine.

No one reason is better than any other\, but each market’s mission is the basis for its rules and operating procedures. \nThe Alachua County Farmers’ Market (ACFM)\, was founded to give growers a place to sell home grown produce directly to the public so they can generate sustainable income from farming. By doing so\, it has enabled many farmers to keep on farming instead of having to take other jobs or to sell their land for development. \nA Growers Only Market\nBecause of this mission\, the ACFM is a grower’s only market. What this means is that the people selling produce\, plants\, and other products at the ACFM must have grown the items themselves. They are NOT allowed to purchase produce from other farms or wholesalers and resell it. That is why there are certain crops\, like asparagus\, that are not available. They simply don’t grow well in Florida. \nWhen you go to the market\, you are meeting real farmers. While they may have some non-farming helpers behind their booths\, there will be at least one person who can tell you how the crops were grown\, whether or not they are organic\, and what variety they are. Plant sellers can tell you whether a particular shrub needs shade or sun and how often it should be watered. \nBy shopping at the ACFM\, you are supporting Florida farmers at the same time as getting wonderful fresh produce and beautiful plants at a great price. We thank you for helping Florida agriculture thrive. \n URL:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/events/alachua-county-farmers-market/2020-09-19/ LOCATION:5920 NW 13th St\, Gainesville\, FL\, 32653\, United States GEO:29.7099833;-82.3534553 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=5920 NW 13th St Gainesville FL 32653 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=5920 NW 13th St:geo:-82.3534553,29.7099833 ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/alachua-fmarket.png END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20200919T100000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20200919T150000 DTSTAMP:20200925T001145 CREATED:20170618T014719Z LAST-MODIFIED:20170618T014719Z UID:303060-1600509600-1600527600@staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org SUMMARY:Riverside Arts Market (RAM) DESCRIPTION:ABOUT THE RIVERSIDE ARTS MARKET \nProduced by Riverside Avondale Preservation\, Inc.\, the Riverside Arts Market is every Saturday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.\, rain or shine.

The Riverside Arts Market is a great example of public/private partnership with funding for its extensive infrastructure obtained from FDOT\, the City of Jacksonville\, JEA\, JTA\, and Fidelity National. \n URL:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/events/riverside-arts-market-ram/2020-09-26/ LOCATION:715 Riverside Avenue\, Jacksonville\, FL\, 32204\, United States GEO:30.3164943;-81.6762903 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=715 Riverside Avenue Jacksonville FL 32204 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=715 Riverside Avenue:geo:-81.6762903,30.3164943 ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/RAM.png ORGANIZER;CN="RAM":MAILTO:info@riversideartsmarket.com END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20200926T140000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20200926T170000 DTSTAMP:20200925T001145 CREATED:20170215T045545Z LAST-MODIFIED:20170215T045545Z UID:307540-1601128800-1601139600@staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org SUMMARY:Beaches Green Market DESCRIPTION: \n  \nVendors 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 breads\, homemade dog treats\, local honey and other seasonal delights.

These markets connect consumers with fresh\, and more often than not organic\, food that is free of the over-processing that plagues most products found in the average supermarket. Even the ability to purchase free-range eggs is a significant opportunity. Recent studies show that the nutritional value of free-range eggs versus caged eggs was greater. It’s the small things that help make a difference. \nAside from the obvious benefit of access to good food\, farmers’ markets can encourage the surrounding residents to get outside and engage in a communal activity. These markets\, with successful placement\, even have the ability to contribute to local culture by providing an arena for local musicians and artisans. They also affect the surrounding economy by keeping consumer’s dollars local. \nIt is our belief that a farmers’ market as the potential to do great good for the community in more ways than one. \n URL:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/events/mid-week-market/2020-09-30/ LOCATION:716 Ocean Blvd\, Atlantic Beach\, FL\, 32233\, United States GEO:30.3322;-81.397666 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=716 Ocean Blvd Atlantic Beach FL 32233 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=716 Ocean Blvd:geo:-81.397666,30.3322 ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Mid-Week-Market.png END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20200930T160000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20200930T190000 DTSTAMP:20200925T001145 CREATED:20170618T012319Z LAST-MODIFIED:20170618T012319Z UID:309543-1601481600-1601492400@staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org SUMMARY:Union Street Farmers Market DESCRIPTION: The Union Street Farmers Market was held for the first time on April 3\,1996. Formed by a dedicated small group of local farmers with the assistance of Ken and Linda McGurn and the City of Gainesville\, the original purpose of the market was twofold: 1] to provide local farmers a new venue to sell their produce at retail prices; and 2] to create a weekly family oriented event in the Union Street entertainment district that would reflect the vibrant diversity of this university community. \n After eleven great years in the Sun Center the market moved to the downtown Bo Diddley Community Plaza. Having evolved into the preeminent weekly event for this area the market now hosts 60 plus vendors each week. \n URL:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/events/union-street-farmers-market/2020-09-30/ LOCATION:111 East University Avenue\, Gainesville\, FL\, 32601\, United States GEO:29.651503;-82.3234669 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=111 East University Avenue Gainesville FL 32601 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=111 East University Avenue:geo:-82.3234669,29.651503 ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png:http://staging.sustainablenorthflorida.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/union-streent-fmarket.png END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
