JV Farms at Bernice Garden Farmers Market Brian Chilson

Farmers markets around Arkansas have responded to the coronavirus pandemic in a number of ways, including going to online ordering and curbside pickup, limiting numbers at vendor booths and implementing other measures so farmers and buyers can safely buy and sell. With an assist from the University of Arkansas’s Division of Agricultural Cooperative Extension, we’ve compiled information on some of the many markets in Arkansas.
