Riverside Arts Market (RAM)
RAM is Jacksonville’s premier destination for art lovers, treasure hunters, music fans and foodies alike. The Market has drawn local acclaim, national press coverage and more than 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 seventh year, RAM is bigger, bolder and even better. Every Saturday thru December 19th, 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 Farmers' Market features locally-grown, seasonal produce and farm products. Food artists feature 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.
