There’s plenty of things to do around the First Coast this weekend. Here are some of our top picks.

Pick Up Local Favorites at the Jaxsons Night Market

Fans of local farmers markets will love newcomer Jaxsons Night Market, an open-air market that takes place the third Thursday of each month downtown at the corner of Laura and Adams Streets. Stop by anytime between 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. to check out the latest from local craft breweries, street food vendors, local farmers and artisan and craft makers.

The Jacksonville Real Estate market continues to see a recovery towards a more healthy, stable marketplace, but at a more moderate pace. This isn't a bad thing - it means that the rise to normal inventory numbers and prices will be stable and less likely to falter. Some potential trends to watch for this year include increased seller activity as sellers become more confident in the market, more new construction to help combat low inventory numbers, and fewer foreclosures on the market as they continue to be picked up by investors and buyers willing to work with them.

Another builder has jumped into the new construction storm swirling around Jax, this time targeting an underdeveloped area of Southside. ICI Homes started construction on its new mixed-use community, Tamaya, at the intersection of Beach Boulevard and Kernan, with eight model homes set to break ground in January to showcase the varied Mediterranean home styles for interested homebuyers. Tagged as a high-end development "between the city and the sea," the master-planned community will combine Old World architecture with first-class amenities and a European Village.
