Make sure you check out the plant sale online! M & D Specialty Growers have decided to focus on growing figs and chestnuts, so they are clearing out the greenhouse by offering reduced prices on all the other plants they offer!

Check out the cheese selection available from White River Creamery. They have added Raw Goat Gouda and more feta to their inventory.

Good afternoon! The online market is a great way to ensure you get the items you want by ordering them and picking them up at the market on Saturday! Order what you need for your Memorial Day cookouts.

The vegetables available online do not reflect ALL the variety available at the outdoor market. So much more is available so make sure you visit the farmers tables when you stop by.

Check out the great selection of perennials available. They are hardy and propagated from plants grown in Arkansas for over 30 years. You can see photos of them at the outdoor market near the Market Welcome Station.

We Need Your Input!! Please complete our survey!


In 2014, through a series of public surveys and meetings, a vision was cast for creating a combined farmers market/ amphitheater pavilion on the land downtown where the former Siloam Springs Medical Center sat, now adjacent to the new Siloam Springs Public Library.

As we consider moving forward with that vision and continue to carry out the mission of the farmers market, we would like your input as a customer.

Here is the link to the survey:
