Link for Tuesday market survey

Online Market is Open!

We need your help! The Siloam Springs Farmers Market is considering the possibility of a Tuesday evening market. Will you help us by taking this survey and sharing with friends in Siloam Springs and the surrounding areas?

Online Market is Open!

Pre-order your meats, baked goods, honey, jams and jellies, and all natural cleaning and personal products through the online market!

Market Management is currently visiting with some of our farmers to see who will be growing produce for the winter market. We are hoping to have kale, chard, arugula, spinach, sweet potatoes, potatoes, winter squash, onions, and herbs.

R Family Farm and J. D. Hudson Farm will be participating in the online market this winter. We will be visiting with our other vendors to confirm their continued sales through the online market.

Today we issued the final portion of our match money through the Double Dollar program. Thank you to all who have taken part in this program. We request that all Double Dollars be used at market no later than October 25, 2014, which is the last day of the physical market in the park.

Have a great weekend!

National Farmers Market Week, August 3rd -9th

This week is National Farmers Market Week! August 1st was national recognition for Women who Farm – stop by
this Tuesday and visit Tang from Thao Farm and Dia from Lee Farm and let them know how amazing they are! Also, on Saturday do the same for Jennifer from R Family Farm and Houa from Xiong Farm!

Saturday is Kids Day! Marshall Mitchell will be our guest musician, the Benton County Master Gardeners will be there with adult education and a great children’s craft – Making Insect viewing boxes, and Mary Hanson is back with another art project!

We also want to share that Yum Yum Bakery, who has been a faithful market vendor, is now inside Pour Jons. This means they won’t be at market on Saturday but they will be just down the street selling those same great scones where you can also pick up a cup of coffee or your favorite tea. Stop by and see them and congratulate them on their new location. They’ve worked hard to see this come to fruition.

We still have the Double Dollar program for SNAP customers and Seniors who have vouchers. Visit the market Welcome Station to double your spending power!

Online Market is Open!

Ordering online ensures the availability of the items that sell quickly!

Enjoy shopping!

The Double Dollar Program is Back!

SNAP benefits may be used to pay for online orders. Those benefits are also eligible for the Double Dollar program. The information below explains how the program works and it can work the same way for online orders.

If you have SNAP benefits or Senior Vouchers make sure to stop by the market Welcome Station and take advantage of a great program we have to offer called Double Dollars. How does this program work? Here is an example: You choose to spend $20 on your SNAP card – we swipe the card using a card reader/processor and get your transaction approved. Then we provide $20 in tokens to spend with the farmers PLUS give you $20 additional in Double Dollars cards, which increases your spending power to $40. The maximum we will match per market day is $50 – so you can increase your spending power to $100 per market day with this program.

SNAP benefit tokens and Double Dollar cards can be used to purchase produce, fruit, eggs, meat, honey and baked goods. Senior Vouchers can be used to purchase fruit, produce and honey.

We also have vendors who are approved to accept the WIC Farmers Market vouchers. There are usually 3-5 vendors each market day that accept these vouchers. (Unfortunately we are not allowed to double these vouchers)

The Siloam Springs Farmers Market is open Tuesday and Saturday through October 25th from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Come by the market and check things out. Stop by and visit the market manager, Stacy, if you have any questions or would like to use your benefits to make purchases.

Onliine Market is Open!

We have had such beautiful weather! The farmers have been bringing an abundance of produce to market on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Tomatoes are ripe, fresh herbs are becoming more plentiful, eggplant and okra have made their debut. Green beans, new potatoes, carrots, and cucumbers are abundant! If you like to preserve fresh produce visit with the farmers about buying in large quantities. We have visited the farms and know they have plenty for canning!

The market continues to offer pastured poultry, beef and pork through two vendors – R Family Farm and J.D. Hudson Farm.

There are plenty of great baked goods, jams and jellies, hand made soaps, home made cleaning supplies and hand crafted items.

Double Dollars are here and you can visit the market booth to get matching money for EBT purchases and Sr. Vouchers.

Thank you for continuing to support the Siloam Springs Farmers Market at our physical market and through the online market!

Online Market closed Week of 6-22 through 6-28-14

The Siloam Springs Farmers Market will be located in the Arvest Bank parking lot on June 28th, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. while the Siloam Springs Heritage Festival is in the park. Since we will not have access to the concession building, which is the location where online orders are picked up, we are closing the online market this week. This should be the last time this season that the online market is closed.

You can still come to the market on June 28th and purchase your meats, produce, baked goods and crafts AND you can visit the Heritage Festival while you’re downtown as well.

Thank you for supporting your local farmers and artisans!
