Jacksonville 3rd Saturday Market in the Park


Every 3rd Saturday of the month, local Jacksonville area vendors meet at Spring Park in Green Cove Springs for the 3rd Saturday Market in the Park.You may have heard the saying “think globally, shop locally”.  For Jacksonville residents, this simply means that we need to concentrate our patronizing local businesses rather than only shopping at those big box stores.  Not only does this reduce our carbon footprint, but it helps perpetuate a robust local economy.  Jacksonville area residents spend money at Jacksonville area businesses which generate Jacksonville area tax dollars which are used for Jacksonville area services that help Jacksonville area residents.  Now THAT’S the circle of life here in Jacksonville!  One way to think globally and shop locally is by visiting the Jacksonville 3rd Saturday Market in the Park.

What: Jacksonville 3rd Saturday Market in the Park
Where: Spring Park (Walnut & Magnolia, Green Cove Springs)
When: Every 3rd Sat now thru July, 10am to 3pm
