  • Little Rock Urban Farming folks (shown here on a Saturday morning in Hillcrest) will be selling Saturday afternoons in West Little Rock's Promenade at Chenal.


Chenal-type folks will get a taste of what it's like to shop in the groovier neighborhoods when the West Little Rock Farmers Market opens Saturday in the Promenade at Chenal, 17711 Chenal Parkway. Barnhill Orchards, Laughing Stock Farms/Hardin Foods Two, Little Rock Urban Farming and North Pulaski Farms will sell locally-grown produce from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Saturday there until Oct. 26.

The kickoff special event at the Farmer’s Market West this Saturday (Sept. 28) is “Feed & Be Fed,” sponsored by the farmers and Arkansas Rice Depot. Shoppers who donated non-perishable items to the Rice Depot will receive a free produce item of their choice.

The market, next to J. Crew, will feature live music, restaurant samplings and more in upcoming weeks.

  • 'Why urban freeway expansion is futile': A report that cites I-30 project

    Smart Mobility Inc. engineer Norm Marshall explains in this Congress for New Urbanism article why highway departments' arguments for highway widening fall short of reality (as the graphic above does as well): He says its because their modeling is out of whack, both in its estimates of the effect of expansion on travel times and the effectiveness of boulevards, and he uses the plan to widen Interstate 30 from six lanes of traffic to 12 or more as an example.
