Delicious Looking Fresh Produce Now at Farmers Markets


A sure sign of spring and summer is when farmers markets around the state begin selling their wares. There is something special about selecting from fruits and produce that are fresh off the farm – a little home-grown quality control, if you will. And what a wonderful opportunity to introduce your kids to vegetables; letting them choose what they want is a great way to get them to eat more foods that are good for them. Let’s face it…nothing tastes as good as something fresh.

Nearly all feature fresh produce along with plants, flowers and some crafts. The Certified Arkansas Farmers Market in North Little Rock and the River Market Farmers Market in Little Rock have both recently opened. 

The CAFM outdoor shopping venue awaits visitors from 7 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. Located across from the Argenta Market in North Little Rock’s historic district, it is also on the River Rail trolley route. An abundance of free parking is available. Check out the latest in locally grown produce and other items at the corner of Main and 6th Street. Visit or phone 501-379-9980 for details.

The Little Rock farmers market is one of the state’s oldest, having been around since 1974. The two open-air pavilions in the River Market are full of vendors every Tuesday and Saturday 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. in season. In addition to Arkansas crops, there’s also a wide variety of handmade arts and crafts.Visit for more information.
