The Riverside Arts Market (RAM) is planned to open in April 2009. This huge all-weather market under the canopy of the Fuller Warren Bridge has the potential to be the biggest weekly arts event ever held in Northeast Florida. The RAM Committee has been working for the past year to develop market policies and guidelines, a parking plan, a marketing plan, an agreement with the city, a sponsorship plan and much more.

On Saturday, January 24th, 10am - 11:30am, the RAM Committee will host a workshop for interested artists, food vendors and farmers. The purpose of this workshop is to receive feedback on the market guidelines (including market layout, booth assignment policy and cost structure, Market policies and procedures).

In order for the Market to be successful we need and want your input.

The meeting on the 24th will be held at the First Guaranty Bank Building at 760 Riverside Ave, Jacksonville FL 32204, immediately across the street from the Arts Market site. We will begin promptly at 10am. After the meeting, we will walk over to the Market location so you can take a look and ask questions.

Please RSVP by January 22 to Teresa Fish at teresa@riversideavondale.org if you plan to attend. This will be a great meeting!

Thank you,
RAM Committee
