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:

We had a GREAT first Kids Day. The weather was breezy and cool and the kids enjoyed themselves immensely! Shout outs to the Siloam Springs Museum and Benton County Master Gardeners for providing fun activities for the kiddos.

We had several new vendors today as well. This and That with hand made jewelry who will be with us on 2nd and 4th Saturdays, Wood Creations with beautiful wooden spoons, trivets, hand made rockers and more will be with us every Saturday, and Rochelle Broglen, Henna and Body Paint artist will be with us every Kids Day.

Our SNAP/EBT machine broke the first day of market but we received notification Friday that new equipment has been shipped! We hope to be offering SNAP again soon.

Tuesday, May 17th is Trucks and Tunes at the Farmers Market. Musician Pat Ryan Key will be playing tunes from 4-6 pm and Yeyos will be serving up some amazing food! This will be a fun gathering if community. Hope to see you there!

The outdoor market had a great turnout today and beautiful weather! The mild temperatures have been beneficial to our farmers and the early sowing of their crops. Herbs, greens, root veggies, strawberries, squash and zuchinni, onions, beets, turnips and daikon were plentiful today. Local, Arkansas honey is always available. There were lots of fresh, cut flowers just in time for Mothers Day! Farm fresh eggs, pastured pork(bacon, chops, ham, work loin, sausage, brats), pastured chicken(whole birds and cuts), and grass fed beef(ground, brisket, steaks, roasts, snack sticks) are also available. Loaf breads, cakes, pizza crusts, cookies, flat breads, cinnamon rolls, scones and muffins are baked fresh. Jams and jellies are made with love. Knitted and crocheted items are hand made and ready to be worn or draped on a chair or bed. Hand made soaps, bath teas and more in fabulous scents and homemade laundry detergent, deodorant, lip balms, and first aid creams are crafted by local makers. Beautiful art is displayed by a beautiful local artist who paints plein air while visitors observe. All types of plants are available from succulents to hanging baskets to roses. Local musicians are invited to play their tunes and today Sam Thompson joined us from Fayetteville. If you haven’t been by to visit yet this season make time to do so on Tuesday(3-7 pm) or Saturday morning 8 am to 1 pm.

The online market continues year round and placing an order online ensures you get the items you want. During the outdoor market season you pick the order up at the Welcome Station between 9 am and noon.

Be sure to like our Facebook page to keep up with events and what seasonal produce and fruits are available. Check out a great recipe using market ingredients that will be posted tonight!

Saturday, May 14th is our first Kids Day of the season! Joining us with great, free activities for your kids will be the Siloam Springs Museum, Benton Co Master Gardeners and The Romper Room with the ever favorite bounce house! The Kids Day fun begins at 9 am.

Have a great week and see you at the market!
