Grand Opening of Atlantic Beach City Market

You are invited to join in the Grand Opening of a weekly* fresh food market in the Mayport Corridor of Atlantic Beach at 2:45 pm on Friday, February 17th.  The market is located at New Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, 1996 Mayport Road.  

The market is a collaboration between the City of Atlantic Beach, Atlantic Beach Urban Farms, Baptist Health Jacksonville, BEAM, Dig Local Network, Jacksonville University, New Friendship Church and the Clinton Health Matters Initiative.  It will serve a USDA-defined food with weekly access to a point of sale for fresh produce, meats, dairy and other items as well as nutrition education and twice monthly health screening opportunities.  Please join us to learn more as we celebrate by cutting the ribbon for this replicable public-private-social partnership that will strengthen our local food system and community health.

*The market, managed by Dig Local Network, will open every Friday from 3 to 6 pm., rain or shine, 52 weeks a year.  Recipients of SNAP/EBT will be able to double up to $20 per visit for Florida-grown fruits and vegetables.
