Today, lush tropical landscape and winding walkways link attractions, restaurants and shops on Florida's Most Beautiful Mile. Riverwalk Park is a multimillion-dollar project involving state, local and private funding and combining the arts, history, entertainment, higher education, and various businesses.
Riverwalk Trust will sponsor an Urban Market on every Saturday along the Riverwalk in the historic area at the end of SW 3rd Avenue from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Many unique and unusual products will be available at the market, including organic produce, heirloom tomatoes, seafood, organic soaps, pastries, specialty fruit drinks, specialty coffees, organic granola, jams, jellies, oils and spices, olive mixes, pastas, sauces, mozzarella, breads, doughnuts, muffins, orchids, Peruvian food, guacamole, teas and organic healing herbs.
More than two dozen vendors have signed up for the market, including L'Hermitage Catering and Gourmet Emporium, Speckled Dog Pottery, Steve's Stone Crab Claws and Swank Specialty Produce.
The market is free and open to the public.
