Throughout its 100-plus-year history, the location of the Rype & Readi Downtown Farm Market – a prime location in Lincolnville, a historic district of St. Augustine, Florida — has served as a transfer station, stagecoach garage, and horse stables.
Fast forward and the location now has the flair of a European village marketplace where local residents, amateur cooks, and professional chefs can stroll through the aisles, shelves, and dairy cases and pick through the daily offerings to create one-of-a-kind tasty meals.
Here you’ll find an array of fresh, locally grown, and organic vegetables that you might be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. Each season brings its own specialties to the market: strawberries, cherries, and asparagus in spring and early summer; blueberries and melons later in the summer; mushrooms, apples, and pears in the autumn; and oranges, nuts, and root vegetables in winter. Also featured are cheeses and yogurts from local dairy farms; fresh, seasonal fruits; artisan breads; homemade fruit and ice cream shakes, and specialty items such as Honey Crystals and Madagascar Vanilla Extract.
Even when you are not on the lookout for anything in particular, an inspiring stroll around this market will awaken your taste buds. Cooking demonstrations by local professional chefs are frequently conducted. Sign up for our weekly e-news to be alerted of all the special things we have in store for you!
