One of the most interesting things about Northwest Arkansas is that each town retains its own personality. Walking downtown Bentonville feels different from downtown Rogers. Springdale, although so near to Fayetteville, is not a carbon copy of it's southern brother. One of the best ways to see those differences is by visiting the farmer's markets and public celebrations of each town.
One of my favorite Farmer's markets is in Fayetteville. Since the outdoor, fair weather version of the year round market opened in April, this seems a good time to share some photos I've taken at the market in the past.
By only allowing produce and crafts from a 60 mile radius of Fayetteville, you know you're seeing the real Northwest Arkansas goods.
The downtown square version of the farmer's market runs from April to October on Tuesday and Thursday (from 7 a.m. – 1 p.m.) and April to November on Saturdays (7 a.m. – 2 p.m.) on the Historic Fayetteville Square
