Bentonville Farmers Market Tops $1 Million in Sales, Shifts to Off-Season Virtual Market


Farmers markets are more than just a place to find perfect blueberries or red, ripe tomatoes—they’re a place where we can support our local farmers and makers and financially support our local economy.

Downtown Bentonville Inc. proudly announces the Bentonville Farmers Market, held each Saturday from April through October, hit a record-breaking $1,164,492 in sales for the 2021 season. The final market of the year is scheduled for Saturday, October 30th.  

As the downtown weekly market season ends, efforts will shift to support and grow utilization of the Virtual Bentonville Farmers Market, a year-round option for shoppers to purchase fresh vegetables, local meats, and artisanal goods through a website or smartphone app.

“It’s a modern customer experience, and we’ve noticed that our customers purchase more when they shop virtually. We also see a spike in orders placed during the fall and winter months. It’s a great way for our community to support our local farmers and growers year-round and gain weekly access to healthy, locally grown food,” says Bentonville Farmers Market Manager Stephanie Marpe.  

Here's how it works: Customers can browse local goods on the web or in the mobile app, fill a digital cart, check out in a single translation, and then pick up their goods on Thursdays from 4 pm to 6 pm in a designated area at 102 East Central Avenue.
