The Little Rock Farmers’ Market will return on Saturday, May 1, officials announced Wednesday (March 31). The market, held in the downtown Little Rock River Market, has been postponed for a year due to COVID-19.
The 2021 season, which will be the 47th season for the farmers’ market, will run on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Sept. 25. It features locally prepared cottage foods and meats to complement farm-fresh produce from farms across the state and throughout the region.
Since 1996, the Little Rock Farmers’ Market has made its home in the River Market’s two outdoor, open-air pavilions overlooking Riverfront Park and the Arkansas River.
In conjunction with the opening of the Farmers’ Market on May 1 (5/01), the River Market will host festivities for 501 Day, a new celebration of all things central Arkansas. Local businesses are encouraged to show their “501” pride with special 501-themed offers, activities and merchandise. Visit Celebrate501.com for more information.
Plus, the Ottenheimer Market Hall, which features local restaurants and booths, will re-open May 1 and remain open throughout the Farmers’ Market season. It will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
