The fifth anniversary season of the Riverside Arts Market is fast approaching, and the deadline for the March 2 opening day is Jan. 31. New applicants must pay a $19 fee and returning vendors must pay $11.
RAM, a Folio Weekly Best of Jax winner, promises a wide array of art, produce, food and entertainment 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Saturday from March to December under the canopy of the Fuller Warner Bridge.
Interested artists, farmers and vendors should go to riversideartsmarket.com to fill out the application by Jan. 31. Approval and denial notifications will be sent out during the week of Feb. 4. A mandatory orientation for vendors who have not participated in RAM since June 30, 2012, is scheduled for Feb. 23.
Applications received after the Jan. 31 deadline will be processed as they are received, according to RAM. More
