Apologies for such a late opening.

This weekend there will be live music by William Adkins. Strawberries are plentiful and produce is increasing in variety. We have great crafts and gifts by local makers as well as fresh baked goods.

Join us this weekend at the market for Kids Day! Lots of fun, free activities and Dragonfly Studio will be painting faces for a fee. Candice has a nice range of prices and does a beautiful job.

While you’re at the market be sure to get some strawberries! Lamb, goat, beef, pork, poultry and farm fresh eggs are all available. We have all the greens, asparagus, bok choy, turnips, radishes, and cilantro, honey, breads, jam, locally roasted coffee, Lefse, and more!

It will be Mother’s Day weekend so be sure to pick up some flowers or a nice hand crafted item. There is so much to choose from!

Have a great week and see you Saturday!

What a beautiful weekend it was for the Dogwood Festival! Thanks to all of you who were able to get out and make it to the market Saturday.

At the outdoor market you now have access to local pasture raised beef, goat, lamb, pork, and poultry! With all the produce, some fruit, breads and other baked goods, eggs, and honey you can purchase everything you need to make great, healthy meals to serve to your family and friends.

Don’t forget that our market accepts SNAP benefits and we have a program to double your spending power! Come by the Market Welcome Station to learn more. We also accept Farmers Market WIC vouchers and Senior Vouchers.

Enjoy your week and the warmer weather! See you Saturday!!

Siloam Springs Farmers Market at the Dogwood Festival

The second week of market season was great! If you haven’t met David Mitchell of Dos Locos Farm make sure you stop and talk to him about his product. He sells lamb and goat and provides information about how to prepare each cut. This is our first year to have lamb. I noticed Ridgeline Farms Gourmet Microgreens had some mint for sale last weekend. That might work very nicely with lamb.

This coming Saturday, April 28th, the market will move to the Arvest Bank parking lot, downtown, across from 28 Springs Restaurant. We will be there from 8 am to 1 pm so come by and do your shopping before or after visiting the festival. There is a possibility there will be STRAWBERRIES this weekend!

Thank you for supporting our local farmers, makers, and bakers. See you Saturday!

Have a great week and see you Saturday!

Two more weeks until we move outdoors! Hope you are watching Facebook and Instagram for our Faces of the Farmers Market campaign. I’ve shared the press release we sent out below. It’s going to be a great year!

Opening day will feature our first Kids Day for the season with free activities from 9 am to noon. Dragonfly
Studios will be with us offering amazing face painting services. Willi Carlisle, a local musician, will be playing
music from 10 am to noon. Your favorite farmers and vendors are returning and there will be a few new
vendors for you to meet and welcome to our market family!
Those who receive SNAP/EBT benefits may purchase tokens at the market to use to purchase eggs, meat,
produce and baked goods all season. The market also participates in a Double Dollar program that provides
funds to match SNAP/EBT and Senior Voucher purchases.
“We’re partnering again this year with the Benton County Master Gardeners and the Siloam Springs Museum
to host second Saturday Kids Days April through September, as well as planning a calendar of events with
special programs most Saturdays,” explained market manager Stacy Hester. “The Power of Produce returns
this season providing a fun opportunity for children to engage in the local food system through conversations
directly with farmers, educational games and demonstrations, and exposure to new fruits and vegetables. In
addition to participating in educational activities, POP Club kids receive vouchers to spend at the market,
allowing them to make their own shopping decisions at the market. We will have live music, monthly cooking
demonstrations and more. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for programming updates and
watch for a preview of our farmers, makers, and bakers in our Faces of the Farmers Market campaign”.
The Siloam Springs Farmers Market is a program of Main Street Siloam Springs.

Have a great week and see ya Saturday!

Apologies this is late. I just realized it didn’t work the first time.

This week our office staff is in Kansas City at the Main Street America Conference. Tomorrow I get to take a tour of the Overland Park Farmers Market.

Bad Dog Beanery is back so get your coffee this,week.
Honey, bread, meats, and eggs are all available. This week there is spinach and radishes available from Arkansabi Farms. Opossum Hollow is taking a break and sent this message for you all:

… to all of our over winter on-line market customers. Its been a good off season and we really appreciate everyone’s patronage. We look forward to next winter and expanding to add (with luck) onions, carrots, and radishes to our over winter line up. We have also altered some of our high tunnel methods so that we can beef up our offerings consistently all the way from November through the 1st of April. The time has come for us to focus our efforts on the outdoor market and we can’t wait to see you all there, just two weeks from Saturday!  Thanks again!

Chicken drumsticks from R Family Farm are on sale as long as inventory lasts. Get 2-2.5 lbs for $7!

Opossum Hollow has kale and lettuce available.

Our farmers are hard at work tending to the seedlings planted weeks ago. Potatoes are in the ground. Chicks are being raised and baby calves are being born. Bees are gathering pollen on warm days and taking it back to the hive to fill the frames and make honey.

Outdoor market season is getting closer. Mark your calendars for opening day on April 14th!

May your week be filled with blessings and joy! See you Saturday!
