Online Market is open!


Farmers Market of Siloam Springs

Market is open for business again! Orders will be accepted through Wednesday at 5 p.m. www.siloamsprings.locallygrown.net


Hope everyone is still enjoying the option of ordering online. I enjoy using the online market to help me plan my meals for the week. On market days, I select the produce I need to complement the meals I’ve planned and each Saturday I pick up my meats, baked goods, etc. that I pre-ordered.

Enjoy perusing the list of wonderful products available through the Siloam Springs Online Farmers Market and physical market.

Squash, Green Beans & New Potatoes


Farmers Market of Siloam Springs

Market is open for business again! Orders will be accepted through Wednesday at 5 p.m. www.siloamsprings.locallygrown.net


Each market day I arrive to find a new veggie or two making its debut. This weekend there was yellow squash, zucchini, green beans, new potatoes, & broccoli. Ok, so that’s more than two. It was an exciting morning as I walked through and made my purchases and then an exciting end to the market day when I walked through and saw tables that had been piled high with vegetables were left with few items.

I LOVE how our community comes and supports the local farmers and artisan bakers. You all are awesome!

Perennial Gardens and Susi’s Kitchen still have a nice selection of vegetable plants if you need to start your garden or want to plant additional items now for a later harvest.

Skopps Bakery has the best selection of jams and jellies in addition to amazing baked goods.

Create 4 Good carries homemade laundry detergent, deodorant, foaming hand soaps, lip balm, hand sanitizer, wool dryer balls, and local honey.

The Bread Basket has many varieties of breads, cinnamon rolls and she usually makes a unique treat each week. She now carries local honey.

Circle C Candles has a large selection
of soy based candles and Keith, the candle maker, takes custom orders.

East Side Acres has farm fresh eggs every week.

Jajo’s Old Fashioned Cookies has cookies like grandma bakes. Yum!

R Family Farm and J.D. Hudson Farms has a wide variety of grassfed beef, pastured pork, poultry and farm fresh eggs.

Marie’s Crochet offers some great items for your kitchen and toys for the children.

Even though not all of the above vendors sell through the online market, most of them are at the physical market on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Pre-ordering from those who do sell through the online market guarantees that you will have the items you want and on pick up day you can peruse the physical market and shop for the produce you are looking for.

Thank you for faithfully shopping the Siloam Springs Farmers Market. We appreciate your business!
