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.

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!

JJ’s Wreaths has added some St Patrick’s Day and Easter wreaths to her inventory and for all you Hog fans there is even a Razorback wreath! Watch for additional styles to be added.

The mild winter weather has really helped our farmers extend the growing season and begin planting early enough to have a variety of produce when the outdoor market opens April 26th. I’ve heard the strawberries are doing well and I’m hoping the weather continues to be mild with just enough rain and plenty of sunshine.

We have an amazing group of vendors lined up to bring you all your favorite produce, meats, baked goods, jams, jellies, and honey plus there will be more varieties of fruit than we’ve ever seen if the weather continues this way, there will be soaps, products for men, beautiful plants and more! Stay tuned for vendor highlights in this newsletter and on Facebook!

Enjoy shopping and see you Saturday!
