Jacksonville is a city that’s always growing – but sometimes it’s easy to lose track of how far we’ve come. To help add some perspective, we’ve compiled a list of 15 things that Jacksonville didn’t have just 15 years ago – but that we do have now!
Riverside Arts Market has so rapidly become such an integral part of the culture of the Riverside neighborhood that it’s easy to forget it started in 2008.
The weekly farmers’ market was launched by Riverside Avondale Preservation, utilizing space underneath Fuller Warren Bridge originally intended for a retention pond. The concept was developed by noted local historian Wayne Wood.
As Riverside has grown in popularity, and younger residents with healthier habits have moved into the neighborhood, the market has steadily grown in size since its launch. Upcoming enhancements to Fuller Warren Bridge will establish a walking and biking path from San Marco to RAM, ensuring years of future growth.
