April 4, 2009 was the Opening Day of the Riverside Arts Market in Jacksonville, FL. The market attracted over 100 artists, farmers and food booths and thousands of happy people. This video is Part 1 of a series documenting the historic event.
The Riverside Arts Market will be open every Saturday through December 2009 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is located in Jacksonville, FL under the Fuller Warren Bridge (I-95) on Riverside Avenue. The market is the brilliant idea of Riverside Avondale Preservation’s founder, Dr. Wayne Wood, and was inspired by the Portland Saturday Market.
FUNNYFIXX NOTE: Congratulations to my long-time friend Wayne Wood, the Art Market Executive Committee, market director Tony Allegretti, the remarkable volunteers, artists and crafts people, musicians, food vendors, farmers and entertainers for creating an extraordinary experience. We’ll see you next Saturday at The Market!!
