All of the positive community support has led to a strong presence of local shops in every city. Of course, there is a huge range in shop type. From specialty food markets to women’s boutiques, there is something for everyone.
Personal tastes differ, but one shopping experience unanimously supported by the community are the Northwest Arkansas Farmers Markets. Every Saturday (and on select weekdays), farmers crowd the market stands with fresh produce, flowers, honey, baked goods and cheese.
Fayetteville has the biggest farmers market affair… Actually in 2012, Fayetteville’s Farmers Market was America’s favorite large market. If you go, you’ll see why – dogs, live music, happy children and good coffee everywhere. It’s hard not to enjoy yourself on a Saturday morning at a Northwest Arkansas farmers market.
