Opening Day at the Fayetteville Farmer’s Market

DSC_0311aWith a town motto of “Keep Fayetteville Funky”, you know you’re going to have a good time at the local Farmer’s Market.

The award winning market has been voted Favorite Large Farmers Market and has landed repeatedly in the top 5 in the country. So basically, it’s awesome, y’all.  Open since 1973, the Farmer’s Market has been a Saturday morning staple for as long as I can remember.

This past weekend was Opening Day, so the girl and I had a nice morning checking out this year’s vendors.  Armed with coffee (for me) and an Arkansas Black apple (for her), we enjoyed listening to local music and photographing some favorites.

The Fayetteville Farmer’s Market is open on the historic downtown square April-November from 7 am – 2pm.  I suggest getting there around 8:30 to avoid the crush.  It starts to get hectic around 10-10:30 when all the boutiques and shops open.

How fun are these crafty goodies?



Live Music

Each corner has a different performer and it’s a treat to sit, drink your locally brewed coffee, people watch, and enjoy the tunes.DSC_0377aDSC_0392aDSC_0363aDSC_0312aDSC_0322aDSC_0377a

I love that my girl is growing up doing something I loved as a kid.  Makes my heart happy.


Oh!  The market is VERY dog friendly!  Bring your pooch!

  1. I love farmers markets and local in season produce… wish there were many more of them in America. After living abroad so long and walking to the corner for bread, fruits and veggies, I don’t look forward to shopping in large grocery stores or just on the weekends. I have a lot of military friends in the area and no one mentioned this market. I hope they know about it.
