Saturday, August 13 • 9 AM – 1 PM

Second Saturday Arts & Farmers Market

First Christian Church, 11924 San Jose Blvd Jacksonville, FL 

Variety of vendors. Crafts, plants, teas, honey, household items, bath products, food, clothing, soap, jewelry, bird houses, jams and jellies, bread, cookies, and so much more!
Our vendors donate a portion of their sales to the church rather than the church charging a specific amount for their vendor spot. Those donations go towards the outreach programs of the church. Three of the local outreach programs include the Mandarin Food Bank, our own preschool, and Florida Christian Center on Edgewood. So, when you shop at our market you not only help the small business owners but the community as well!!!! Bonus!!!! We will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Mandarin Food Bank if you would like to donate. A collection bin will be by the front door of the church.

This is a family and pet-friendly event!!

Saturday, August 13 • 10 AM – 3 PM

Riverside Arts Market
