It's whole hog time! This Saturday, the Arkansas Times will be hosting our second annual Heritage Hog Roast at the Argenta Farmer's Market at Sixth and Main streets in North Little Rock. The event, featuring pit-roasted heritage-breed hogs raised at Scott Heritage Farm,  benefits the Argenta Arts District.

There will be 16 hogs roasted by teams from area restaurants including Whole Hog, South on Main, The Root, Southern Gourmasian and many more. There will be everything from pulled pork bahn mi to Moroccan pig roast tagine to classic Memphis barbecue. Plus a few surprises, we're sure. 

Gates open at 5 p.m. and food, including pork and two sides from each team, will be served at 6:30 p.m. It's all you can eat, but your favorite team may run out eventually so, we'd recommend getting there early. 

Buy tickets — $25 in advance or $30 day of the event — and get more info at arktimes.com/heritagehogroast. The ticket price also includes a great slate of music by Memphis' Ghost Town Blues Band, Runaway Planet and The Salty Dogs. If you want to see the music and skip the food, tickets are $10 after 8 p.m. There will also be a beer and wine garden ($5 each).
