Second Saturday Arts & Farmers Market

First Christian Church, 11924 San Jose Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32223

Talk about some fun things to do this weekend in Jacksonville. The Arts & Farmers Market will have a variety of vendors. They’ll be crafts, food, clothing, soap, jewelry, birdhouses, jams and jellies, bread, cookies and so much more! Be sure to bring the whole family and this event is pet friendly!

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!
