RAM is Jacksonville’s Premier Outdoor Arts and Entertainment Market, offering a diverse collection of art, food, produce and entertainment, and featuring over 100 artist vendors each week. These artists are sole-proprietors and/or small business owners who create and sell their own hand-made, artistically fashioned, unique merchandise.
Our vendors love RAM because we are flexible and responsive. Vendors can book one market day, or a dozen, and can even select their own booth spaces. 2014 Season: Applications for new vendors are now open. Applications for potential new vendors for the 2014 season will close on November 1st. Applications for the 2015 season for returning vendors will open in mid-December and for potential new vendors for the 2015 season in mid-January. Applications are reviewed as they are submitted, and those approved will be scheduled for booking on a rolling basis.
