The market will not exclude vendors who supplement produce from other areas outside of Arkansas.  When shopping exclusively for Arkansas-grown produce, always ask where the produce comes from. JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (April 22, 2010) – Jacksonville’s latest attraction, a brand-new 2,355 square-foot Farmers’ Market pavilion, will play host to the market’s Grand Opening on Saturday, May 1, 2010.  Local farmers, produce vendors and other merchants will sell their goods from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The market is located at 9 Municipal Drive in Jacksonville.

 

The market opens in time for the first spring crops to be sold and will fill a need within the community and the surrounding areas for fresh, locally grown produce.  It will host vendors in an open-air bazaar setting and allow them to sell a variety of artisanal, specialty and handcrafted items, as well as opening up the outdoor space for produce wholesalers.

 

Marlo Jackson, marketing manager for Jacksonville Parks & Recreation Department, said, “We are thrilled to be opening Jacksonville’s first official Farmers’ Market and excited to have a dedicated space where people can sell and shop for various kinds of seasonal produce and more. We want the market to be a resource to the community by offering quality items at a fair price.”

 

Following the Grand Opening, the Jacksonville Farmers’ Market will be open bi-weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays from May through October. For additional information, call the Jacksonville Community Center at 501-982-4147.
