Fun event, but I wish they would get some new blood there. It seemed like most of the stalls are the same folks as the last few years. I usually go every weekend to get fresh veggies, but after the first few weekends I just skip the arts booths altogether. I love that it is dog-friendly, too!

This is a great event, (one of my favorite Jacksonville success stories in recent memory) it would be a crime against the city if we were ever to lose it.
