  • The market is all right. There's a lot of vendors some with some pretty neat stuff. A lot of organic stuff if that's what your into. We go every now and then to see and still just walk around and peop...  read more »
  • Very nice place, lots of shade and exceptional variety of vendors. Get there earlier for the easiest parking. 
  • This was our first trip here and it was pretty neat. I'm sure during the season it is much more busy than it was in September, but we had a nice time. It's set up under a bridge and the breeze was ama...  read more »
  • Great find on a Saturday morning. Several vendor stalls of near-local produce, fish and meats as well as arts & crafts offerings. Street food is also available with cuisine from burgers and BBQ to Filipino. Live music on stage as well. Good for the family and a healthy walk outdoors.
  • Great food selection for lunch and found several vendors with local honey. Was able to get some local meat as well. Produce selection however was almost nonexistent as only lettuce was available. Arts and other vendors were present but fairly lowly populated this time of year (September).
  • Great for comfort food, music, and people watching. Some interesting vendors but mostly "commercial" art. Some local produce for the organically inclined. Bought some fresh Mayport shrimp there. Yummy. Nice and shady under the I95 bridge albeit the intruding highway noise right above. Diverse group of mostly inner city residents. I'll keep coming back for more.
  • Wonderful selection of local food and art. It's a great place to find a perfect gift or to just browse and have a quick lunch by the river. Perfect way to spend a Saturday.
  • Wonderful outdoor covered venue. Arts, crafts, and food. There is a huge variety of goods offered and the vendors there change from week to week. Fun entertainment and dog friendly.
