Fayetteville Farmers’ Market Rated #5 in U.S. for 2011

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Market Pro Realty

We all love farmers’ markets and Fayetteville’s Farmer's Market certainly is a most enjoyable place to shop for fresh fruits, vegetables, plants, cut flowers, baked goods, handmade crafts and much more.


The market is open each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday throughout the season on the Fayetteville Square. Saturday’s market in particular is usually bursting vendors, shoppers and entertainers alike. It is a wonderful way to spend some time buying locally grown fresh food for the family while supporting farmers at the same time. There are additional opportunities on Sunday morning at the Ozark Botanical Gardens and from 4-7 on Thursdays in the Mill District.


So I am pleased to let you know that people nationwide had an opportunity recently, through American Farmland Trust, to vote for their favorite farmers’ market in various size categories.


The Fayetteville Farmers’ Market came in #5 in the U.S. large (defined as more than 55 vendors) category. As if that were not enough, Fayetteville came in #1 in all of Arkansas.


It’s always nice to see to see recognition of the many wonderful things in our area that make our quality of life so enjoyable.


For more information about the farmer's market, check the Fayetteville Farmer's Market website and for more information about the contest, the American Farmland Trust website has complete results for all categories (sizes) of farmer's markets.

True that! I did a short piece on this for UATV as well, as part of my classes at the U of A.
