The Bernice Garden Farmers’ Market offers an open community space for local growers to sell sustainably raised fruit, vegetables, nuts, berries, flowers, and herbs, as well as cheeses, prepared food and other goods to downtown Little Rock residents, businesses, organizations and visitors.

The Bernice Garden Farmers’ Market offers a Sunday opportunity to shop for local foods and products in a cozy, comfortable venue. Churchgoers can grab breakfast before services – or a leisurely brunch or lunch afterward. Shoppers who gather under the canopy enjoy music, camaraderie, making new friends and perhaps even planning menus for the week or exchanging recipes as they dine or browse through the fresh local fare.

Free admission and free onsite parking add to the fun and convenience.

All proceeds from the sale of the goods and produce go directly to the market’s participants. Booth rental goes to the Bernice Garden to provide electricity and other amenities to the participants.
