  • I went here for the first time and I loved it. The river view and all this awesome things they sell here. Good experience
  • Awesome place for you to check out local vendors ranging from trinkets, homemade jewelry to food made on the spot, to buying fresh and handmade food (bread, honey, etc). I recommend bringing cash more than card.
  • Unique shopping experience. Live music, locally produced fine art and other artisanal goods, fresh produce, and on site prepared foods. This venue attracts locals and visitors from all over. I love that I can count on shopping there every weekend, no matter the weather.
  • This is a great Saturday morning activity for everyone of all ages. Local artisans and local food trucks. Local farmers and other homemade/handmade goodies. I like to come here with my husband and also to bring our out of town guests as well. Parking is at the Black Knight Financial Building, and you walk under the bridge and there you will see the market taking place. I honestly feel that you should experience Riverside Arts Market for yourself.
  • It's RAM. If you haven't been, go. Music, food, people selling odd stuff. It's a lot of fun, and a great way to get a little grocery shopping done. Seriously though, go to Riverside Arts Market every Saturday that you have a chance. You honestly won't regret it, especially on a beautiful morning.

Where to stay in Jacksonville

Accommodations are spread out across Jacksonville and mainly consist of large hotels. For a more scenic stay, consider a hotel on the riverfront or the coast. Beachside accommodations provide the added benefit of being in a much quieter and slower-paced part of the city, but you are farther away from the majority of the city's cultural attractions. If you are planning a longer stay, consider a vacation rental with a kitchen to help ease food costs. These rentals are frequently located in residential neighborhoods.
