On Saturday, January 7, 2017, the Riverside Arts Market continues to be one of Jacksonville’s signature events with new operating hours every Saturday from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
RAM is actively searching for new artists, artisans, farmers, musicians and food producers, as well as, bringing back favorites. A new food producer in the market this year includes Kurt D’Aurizio, Slow Food First Coast board member and owner of Provisions, a culinary business focusing on products such as pesto and dressings made from produce purchased from local farmers.
With the new changes, the original “Opening Day” of RAM is now a birthday celebration! The event includes family-friendly activities and kicks off RAM’s busiest season.
Also new this year, RAM is providing additional incentives to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients with another matching program funded through the University of Delaware. Recipients have an opportunity to be placed in a lottery to double the incentive each month. Currently, RAM matches SNAP dollars, through Fresh Access Bucks, a program which makes local produce more affordable and accessible to low income families.
