If you are looking for a good meal downtown, you have your breadth of choices. There is fine dining by the River, night life with bar foods at the landing and a plethora of food trucks around town to help even the pickiest eater find something to enjoy. But one of the most popular places to grab a bite in recent years has been Jaxons Night Market, and regulars are going to have to adjust their regular routine to continue their search for good eats at this local market. If you are looking for a new house for you and your family, then consider contacting a professional from these real estate services for help.

That is because Jaxons is moving to Hemming Park. The market will be up and running on the third Thursday of every month, from 5:30 to 9:30. It is no surprise that the market is picking this location and time structure. One Spark has put the downtown area back on the map in Jacksonville, with tens of thousands of locals heading downtown every spring now to take part in the local festivities. And this has started a trend that picks up every month as people take to the downtown area for Art Walk on the first Wednesday of the month. Now, locals have another reason to head downtown—this time on a Thursday.

Jaxons is more food focused than art walk, though it still invites Artisans to take part in the festivities. This is an open-air market that includes local farmers, street food vendors, retailers and more—including a large selection of craft beers thanks to Intuition Ale Works. The open air market is somewhat similar to the Riverside Arts Market, the most popular farmer’s market in town, which takes place every Saturday under the Fuller Warren Bridge. Jaxons Market, while in the same vein, is more nighttime friendly, speaking to more of the night owls of the Jacksonville area than the families who go to RAM week after week.

Jaxons Night Market is being called one of the most exciting additions to Jacksonville culture. This is part of the much larger downtown revival that is happening across Jacksonville.
