Produced by Riverside Avondale Preservation, the Riverside Arts Market (RAM) is a weekly arts and farmers market hosted on Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., rain or shine. RAM features a variety of small businesses from farmers to artists to makers, bakers and food trucks. Under the Fuller Warren Bridge, you’ll find a family-friendly event that attracts 4,000+ visitors every Saturday. The riverfront amphitheater seats 350 people and features live music scheduled every Saturday. Stroll through the rows of local artists and makers. At RAM you will find art, jewelry, candles, plants, bath and body products and so much more all made locally. Each Saturday at RAM is different than the next and the best way to experience is to visit!

At the Riverside Arts Market, enjoy the harvest of the agricultural arts by supporting Florida farmers. Pick up the freshest local flowers and produce each week. To remain sustainable, farmer’s depend on your weekly purchases, so come for the freshness and stay for the fun. Our community benefits from all of us staying “loyal to local.”
