The Market has drawn local acclaim, national press coverage and nearly half a million visitors. Why? Because, simply put, this is the most FREE FUN you can have on a Saturday in Jacksonville.

Now in its sixth year, RAM is bigger, bolder and even better. Every Saturday thru December 21st, from 10 am to 4 pm, more than 100 juried artists showcase the city’s creative side, from handmade pottery, paintings and jewelry, to silk-screened shirts and unique accessories. RAM’s expansive Farmer’s Market features local produce, as well as artisan breads, gourmet spreads, fresh cheeses and other tasty treats. The Market’s three stages present exceptional live entertainment, from great regional bands to barbershop quartets to bellydancers, magicians, fire-eaters and jugglers. With ample free parking, a beautiful riverfront setting and a family-friendly, community-centric vibe, RAM is your bridge to a better weekend.

Located at the end of the Northbank Riverwalk, under the canopy of the Fuller Warren Bridge, the Market is a leisurely 15 minute stroll from Downtown Jacksonville along the St. Johns River. It also is located just 100 yards from The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens and is less than a 5-minute walk to both Memorial Park and Riverside Park.
