01 Jul 2012 Sherwood plans evening farmers market
While there are several farmers markets in the 501, the Sherwood location offers something unique – evening hours.
The market — located in the parking lot at the corner of North Hills Blvd. and Country Club Road in Sherwood — is open 5-8 p.m. each Thursday through Aug. 30.
“It offers the best of locally grown, farm-direct produce, gourmet food and handmade crafts,” said Kelly Coughlin, economic development director for the Sherwood Chamber of Commerce. “The Market is a celebration of community, and the world-class produce and artisan goods for which our beautiful greater Little Rock area is known. Sherwood is offering a common meeting place for locals to meet and fellowship with neighbors.”
The market is managed by Keep Sherwood Beautiful, a non-profit organization. All proceeds will go back into Sherwood. To become a vendor, please call 501.835.4699.
“The Sherwood Farmers’ Market is dedicated to the sustainability of our local environment and our local economy," Coughlin said. "By supporting our farmers and providing a place for all of us to find, connect and learn about the best farm fresh and sustainably grown produce, food and artisan goods available, direct from the source.”
