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.
