ASU Regional Farmer's Market

Pictures showing the farmer's market sign and the farmer's market.

The Arkansas State University Regional Farmers' Market is a project of the East Arkansas RC&D Council.  In partnering with ASU, we have created a place for small local farmers, ranchers, bakers, plant growers, and crafters to connect with the community. 

All produce/products are locally grown/produced, which is described as within 100 miles of Jonesboro or within the state of Arkansas.  The market is filled with 100% growers selling produce, and all crafts are handmade.  All meat is USDA certified and labeled, is hormone-free, and locally grown.  Baked goods, jams, jellies, and fruit butter all follow the Arkansas Cottage Food Act.

The market is located in Jonesboro, Arkansas on the beautiful ASU campus by the ASU farm, at the corner of Stadium Blvd. and Aggie Road.  

The market season is from May - October each year.  Market days include every Saturday throughout the season, and Tuesday/Thursdays during the summer months of June-August.
