Spice up you Saturdays at the Riverside Arts Market, an exciting new weekly market located next to the St. Johns River under the canopy of the Fuller Warren Bridge. It features amazing artists, a farmer's market, terrific food options and free live entertainment, as well as a Children's Creativity Corner. There's ample parking, and the market is located on the edge of the beautiful Riverside Avondale Historic district, which is well worth a stroll.
Here's a cute piece about the market that appeared in our local paper, the Times-Union:
"Here's what you can expect to find at the new Riverside Arts Market, which is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Saturday until Dec. 19th under the Fuller Warren Bridge at Riverside Avenue;
Necklaces, bracelets, baubles and rings,
People carrying bags full of things,
Tomatoes, peppers, teas and honey,
Plenty of ways to spend your money,
Drummers and singers and improv groups,
A lady dancing with Hula-Hoops,
Kettle corn, candy and chicken pie,
A cute little onesie in tie-dye,
Labs, Dalmatians, spaniels, Scotties,
Real restrooms (no Porta Potties),
Paintings and sculptures, teas and cheese,
Lots of shade and a river breeze,
Orchids, eggs, pecans and candles,
Pickles, pots and flip-flop sandals,
Bird feeders, beads, a huge silk rose,
Bows for your hair, rings for your toes,
Scores of artists, each under a tent,
A fine Saturday, very well spent."
