City’s Farmers’ Market gets new home, new name

Market at Magnolia Highlight

The Daytona Beach Downtown Farmers’ Market is moving to its new home on Magnolia Avenue between Beach Street and Palmetto Avenue Saturday, Aug. 29. The move was approved during the Aug. 5 City Commission meeting. The market is also being rebranded as Market@Magnolia, and will continue operating from 7 a.m. to noon every Saturday. Parking is available behind Beach Street businesses and can be accessed from the side streets and Palmetto Avenue. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits continue to be accepted at the Farmers’ Market. Families can purchase fruits, vegetables, dairy products and more using their SNAP benefits. At the market, patrons must follow CDC guidelines and maintain a distance of six feet from others, point at items to purchase (rather than touch them) and wear masks as well as disposable gloves.

The market is relocating for the following reasons:

  • The Farmers’ Market vendors agree that it is a better location for their business.
  • The location (Market@Magnolia) will create new opportunities for evening and weekend events.
  • Downtown businesses will benefit from the closer proximity of Market customers.
  • Magnolia Avenue offers more protection from heat and wind than the open parking lot at City Island.
  • Events on City Island continue to increase, reducing available parking and sometimes closing the market.
  • Customers will have plenty of parking both on the streets and in the parking lots behind Beach Street.
  • The new location is closer to the VOTRAN bus stops.
