I attended a meeting Saturday morning about the upcoming Riverside Arts Market. This is very long in the making and is going to be fantastic! I’m so excited! The enthusiasm of the team organizing and presenting it is definitely contagious. Jacksonville has been needing something like this for years, and Riverside Avondale Preservation is the perfect group to be organizing it. I’ve participated in the Riverside Arts Festival for a few years now, and they really do a top notch job. This market will run every Saturday, 10am-4pm, April through the weekend before Christmas. There will be art, music, a traditional farmer’s market and more. Life with twins and a full-time job may not allow me to do every single week, but I hope to make 2-4 per month if I’m accepted. Visit their website for all the details and plan to come out and support all the artists and vendors participating! Be sure to read the “About the Market” page to learn the history behind it.
