Just in time for the summer season, Arkadelphia has brought back the Clark County Farmers’ Market. The farmers’ market features local farmers and crafters. You can buy items such as local meat and fresh vegetables and fruits.

Erica Hughes from Terre Noire Farms has been a part of the market since 2018. They raise and sell their pork at the market. Based out of Arkadelphia, Hughes loves when the market opens back up in the summer.

The market does not just have food for sale, they also feature crafting vendors such as Henderson State University alum Stacie Hightower. Hightower brings her handmade soaps and other items made from natural ingredients from her business The Herb Square. Hughes and Hightower are just a couple of vendors at the Clark County Farmers’ Market.

The market was founded in 2012 and they strive to offer the citizens of Clark County a place to buy local, healthy, and fresh produce and products. All of their vendors must grow and make 100% of what they sell. The market features items such as vegetables, jams, jellies, soaps, baked goods, and a variety of meats. The Clark County Farmers’ Market prides itself on supporting local farmers and artisans and they are always looking for new vendors to participate.

The market is open during the season, Wednesday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon, located at Arkadelphia Central Park across from Henderson State University Recreation Center.
