*Orange Park Farmers’ Market

The market is located on the busy corner of US17 and Kingsley Ave. 2042 Park Ave, Orange Park, FL 32073. This is an outdoor market and sometimes due to inclement weather the market may be closed. Just look for the large yellow signs!

Created in 2012, the Orange Park Farmers’ and Arts’ Market runs from 10 am – 3 pm on the first and third Sundays of each month, September – June. The market is run by The Town of Orange Park Events and Recreation Division, with over 100 vendors on a regular basis that offer a variety of homemade and homegrown products from local merchants, live entertainment, food on site, and a great family atmosphere! You can find nearly anything your heart desires from locally grown produce, local honey, cupcakes, pies, salsa, granola, plants, produce, raw milk, eggs, cheeses, hand crafted jewelry, bird houses, pottery pieces, didgeridoos, soaps, and many many more handcrafted items!

Suggested parking is at CVS/Winn Dixie, then use the pedestrian crosswalks to enter the market. There is also parking at Town Hall off of US 17 and Smith St and Kingsley Ave- both of these areas offer limited parking.
