Each market day is a festival of the senses thanks to more than 90 growers, artisans and other types of merchants that supply a bountiful cornucopia of fresh produce, flowers, homemade candies, baked goods, canned jams and preserves, high-quality woodturning pieces, gourmet coffees, organic eggs, grass-fed beef and SO MUCH MORE.
The Saturday market is also alive with street performers, local musicians, community organizations, tourists and locals alike. There is plenty of parking nearby, as well as handicapped parking on site.
The Fort Smith Farmer's Market on Garrison Avenue is open from 7 AM to Noon every Wednesday and Saturday from late spring throughout the fall season and on Saturdays from early winter through early spring.
Though the Fort Smith Farmers Market is open year-round, vendor participation does wane after the first frost of the season (last week of October normally) but is known to pick back up on unseasonably warm Winter days (which are frequent in Arkansas). Full vendor participation picks back up in April and culminates during the Saturday markets.
Free and metered parking is available at and/or near the location. Handicap parking is available on site.
