History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, has brought back its popular New River Open Air Market. Beginning Sunday, April 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and each consecutive Sunday thereafter, residents and visitors can enjoy browsing handmade goods and treats on the historic campus, in a socially distanced atmosphere, in front of the New River Inn (231 SW Second Avenue) and along the Riverwalk.
Set along the banks of the New River under the shade of historic live oaks, the Open Air Market will feature more than 52 vendors offering a selection of curated locally made crafts, farm-fresh vegetables, fresh-baked bread and pastries, specialty plants including orchids and succulents, organic food, natural health and beauty products and more. Gourmet bites and beverages will be available to purchase onsite. Live music and a tattoo artist will add another artistic dimension to this community event.
Admission to the New River Open Air Market is free, however, guests are encouraged to take advantage of History Fort Lauderdale’s renowned tours and museums. General admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under.
