The Little Rock Night Market is Back!


The daffodils are blooming, sunny mornings are ending with afternoon showers and farmer’s markets are back in full swing. 

All of this means that it is officially Spring in Central Arkansas! To accompany the many farmer’s markets and events around town, the Little Rock Night Market has announced that it is back for a 4th market on Friday, May 3rd.

The Night Market starts at 5:00pm at the Bernice Gardens located in the South on Main District (SoMa). I had so much fun attending this free, family-friendly event last year which featured delicious food, drinks, local merchants and live music. The night-time event took on the vibe of a farmer’s market buzzed with the energy of letting loose after a long day, illuminated by the hanging lights at the gardens.

Like last year’s markets, this year you can expect to see rows of artisan vendors selling everything from unicorn soaps, screen prints, and custom woodworks. Food trucks will be set up around the vendors and I can guarantee there will be music and dancing. If you are available on May 3rd, I encourage you to bring your family out for an evening of outdoor fun!

In addition to the enjoyable atmosphere, the Little Rock Night Market is a perfect place to shop and support local small businesses that may not have brick and mortar shops. With Mother’s Day coming up a week after the market on May 12th, the market provides the perfect place to choose from locally made gifts that mom will love like boutique fashions and handmade jewelry.

It is through events like the Little Rock Night Market that local innovation and entrepreneurship is increased. The Little Rock Chamber has set a focus on entrepreneurial assistance with the goal of providing fertile soil for launching and growing a business. If you are considering taking up roots in Central Arkansas this Spring, Little Rock is a great place to start.
