From Visit Florida: A Day at Jacksonville’s Riverside Arts Market
On the other side of town, the Fuller Warren Bridge has become a hub for Jacksonville’s arts scene. Local resident Asbell says the Riverside Arts Market, housed under the bridge, is one of the best kept secrets about the city.
“I love to shop at the Riverside Arts Market on the weekends for a bustling assortment of street food, arts, crafts, produce and plants,” he said. The market also plays host to live music and street performers.
We love Yelp and Yelpers love us back!
One of the best places to experience what Jacksonville has to offer! Having lived in a whole variety of metropolitan cities with knock-your-socks-off farmer’s markets, I wasn’t expecting much from Riverside Arts Market. Touché JAX, you have made it to the big leagues of displaying your local artisans! I love the variety of vendors at the market, and just chatting with the folks about what they’re selling. From fresh veggies, to Jamaican jerk, to some homemade soap, the Arts Market has it all. Easily the best way to start off your Saturday morning. Meghan H. from DC.
What a great use of space, under the highway in downtown Jacksonville, Florida! Located along the river, locally grown fruits and veggies, home-based business crafters and ethnic food choices create a welcoming, community-centered market. Your senses will appreciate the sites, smells and tastes. Brewer4 from Jacksonville.
We love going to RAM. Whether we’re getting fresh vegetables for the coming week, trying to find something special for an upcoming birthday, or even if we just feel like a quick bite to eat, we know where to go on Saturdays.
