Visit an Arkansas Certified Farmers Market
Introduce your children to the days of “going to market.” It is easier than ever to purchase fresh-from-the-soil products grown by Arkansas farmers with the variety of certified farmers market options found around the state. Stop by and pick up some home-grown produce, Arkansas honey, and perhaps even handcrafted items or freshly cut flowers. You’ll find a varied selection of items offered at the different markets.
Most certified farmers market operations are seasonal. Please check with the ones you're interested in visiting before making a trip.
The Arkansas Department of Agriculture has compiled a list of farmers markets around the state, from the Argenta Market in North Little Rock, to the Fayetteville Farmers Market and many other inviting small town markets including Mountain Home, Harrison, Pine Bluff, El Dorado and Benton. Check the map on Arkansas Grown to find the products you’re searching for.
