buying oranges etc close to Jax

Will be in Jax this weekend and was thinking I would pick up some Florida oranges etc for gifts to take back to NC.

Anyone know of a good place close to 95 and no further south than Jax. Will be in town for a couple of days so it could be in the city or close to 95. will not be going south of Jax.

thanks

Just take 95 North. Once you get past the airport, you'll see the billboards. A good exit is the exit to Fernandina Beach. Citrus right off 95.

Hi riven,

There's also the big, covered Beaver Street Farmers' Market in the downtown Jacksonville area. You'll find EVERYTHING there, not just oranges. And it's all fresh. Do your fruit and vegie shopping just before you leave for home. It's open from dawn to dusk, 365 days a year. The market is just off I-95 at 1810 W Beaver St., Jacksonville, FL 32209 Check Google maps for the location relative to I-95.

The Farmers' Market web site: http://www.google.com/#hl=en&tbo=d&sclient=psy-ab&q=beaver+street+farmers+market&oq=Beaver+Street+&gs_l=hp.1.1.0l4.609.3428.0.5915.14.14.0.0.0.0.126.1457.7j7.14.0.les%3Bpchsnhac..0.0...1.1.b1rmyCFqVYI&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.1355325884,d.eWU&fp=cfe2de3a4dc5609f&bpcl=39967673&biw=819&bih=514

Have a nice weekend!

Forgot about Beaver Street! One of the best farmers markets in the southeast. Check it out if you can!! Great recommendation, Sprit.

Not many in Jax have been. Considering how long it's been around, it's amazing how little people know about it. Glad you have a good stop and found what you wanted!
