50th Annual Little Rock Farmers Market Sets Opening Date

If you’re ready to embrace spring and all its flavors with open arms, here’s a little something to look forward to. The Little Rock Farmers Market has officially set the opening day of its 2024 season: Saturday, May 4.

Write it down in your planner or tell Siri to bookmark the date because beginning at 7 a.m., the River Market Pavilions will once again be filled with all sorts of vendors and plenty of fresh, local produce.

On opening day, here’s some of the produce that will be in season:

  • strawberries
  • asparagus
  • carrots
  • broccoli
  • tomatoes
  • lettuce
  • onions
  • white potatoes

This year marks the market’s 50th season, which will have the theme of “Back to Our Roots.” According to the Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau, this focus “will align with our mission to directly support the local community and economy,” and we expect to see anniversary events pop up throughout the season.

The market is open from 7 a.m.- 2 p.m. on Saturdays through Labor Day Weekend. Check out the Little Rock Farmers Market webpage and follow along on Facebook for updates and more info.

Vendors, registration will open soon, so keep an eye on the River Market website for details on how to sign up.
