Online Market is Open! Countdown to Outdoor Market Opening Day...Begins!

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!
