Love it! I'll be there on the 7th with my dog Raven. They had a story on NBC news on after dark art markets. I hope you will consider this in the future. They are getting quite popular across the country. Orlando has it. I'll check it out. I hope you do. See you Saturday.

RAM is one of the best things about living in Jacksonville. It's completely free and a great way to spend a Saturday morning. The live music and street performers are great and I love seeing the local art (and splurging on it on occassion). The food is good, but the ready made can be quite pricey. The fruit and vegetables are almost always fresh and they offer samples as well. Some of the booths have become staples, but often the local artists change and the music is different every week. Also, I must say that the bathrooms are wonderful considering they are under a bridge in downtown - permanent facilities similar to a rest stop off a highway. =) I've been at RAM in the heat, wind, and rain and the market is always wonderful. Even in the pouring rain, the bridge cover keeps everything dry. This is definitely one of Jacksonville's gems.

One of the best parts of living in Riverside is being able to walk to RAM every Saturday. Rain or shine, it's always a good time here. They have everything from fire eaters, to clowns, to magic shows, to one-man-bands, to beignets and pizza and bahn mi sandwiches and lemonade. and fresh bread/pastries Also, bring your reusable bags: they have tons of fruit and veggie venders, plus a nice mix of local honey dealers and herb growers.

I'd give RAM five stars except for one thing: lately, families are paying the vendor fee and selling things like rice crispy treats and brownies and "sand filled vases"...i.e., a few people are taking advantage of the guaranteed Saturday crowd to dump some ten cent garage sale crap onto the public. If I wanted a (completely average) rice crispy treat and a 20 dollar cup of sand, do you really think I'd be coming to the FARMERS MARKET?

Anyways, other than that, entirely worth it!

You can find anything here! From handmade soaps to fresh honey, exotic plants to handmade aprons! The aroma is intoxicating and the goods to 'window shop' or purchase are for the most part out of this world. Add on to that the free parking and free admission and you have yourself a great 2-3 hour break from the hustle and bustle.

The Riverside Arts Market is open most Saturday mornings and has fresh vegetables, performance art, painting, and much more. This is a great event in a great location. While you are there consider taking the river walk to the Jacksonville Landing for lunch or dinner afterwards.
