Who We Are
Green Fork Farmers Market in Fayetteville, Arkansas is made up of a group of small family farms committed to providing our local community with naturally grown food and artisan products. Farmers at our market grow without synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and use high quality, natural ingredients in their handmade products. You can get to know our farmers and what they do by visiting each grower’s page under the Our Growers tab. Products available include locally and naturally grown beef, chicken, pork, eggs, honey, microgreens, vegetables, herbs, fruits, herbal products, plants, and baked goods. We also have a small selection of specialty items, such as olives, that cannot be grown locally and that we bring to you through a direct relationship with the farmers who grow them. These items must meet our high standards of quality and natural, sustainable production practices. We hope you will enjoy the opportunity to obtain these items directly from a farmer who knows where they come from and how they are grown, and who benefits locally from your purchase.
Green Fork Farmers Market is conveniently located at 205 W. Dickson St., in the Breezeway at Nightbird Books at the corner of Dickson and Church Streets. The market is open on Wednesdays from 4-7 pm year round. Like a traditional farmers market, you can drop in and browse the market in person and buy directly from the farmers’ tables. However, a unique feature of this market is that you can also shop online and pre-order your products for pickup at the market. This adds convenience for you if you need to just drop by to pick up your order on the way home from a long day. On the other hand, you can also chat with your friends and favorite farmers a bit, see what the growers have available on their tables, stop by Nightbird Books for a good read, and get a cup of coffee, glass of wine, beer, and snack. It’s a quick stop, or a mid-week relaxing treat. We are dedicated to serving your needs, whether you want to run in and grab a bag of fresh, local, naturally grown food, or hang out with fellow foodies and enjoy the evening.
How It Works
You can sign up to be part of Green Fork Farmers Market by clicking on the Sign In tab at the top of this page. It’s easy and free! Once you’re signed up, you will receive a weekly email every Saturday night that lists the fresh, local, and naturally grown products available from each farmer at the next market. Then, you can show up at the market and buy from each farmer in person. Or you can use the online ordering system through Monday at midnight to select the products you want to buy, click to order, and the products will be reserved for you for payment and pickup at the market on Wednesday. The online ordering system helps you know ahead of time what is available that week so you can plan your menus, and your pre-order lets the grower know what and how much to harvest fresh for you to bring to the market on Wednesday.
The annual membership fee for the online market has been waived for 2012, so you get to try out the system and see how you like it with no investment up front. However, a 5% charge is added to each order to cover market expenses, which makes the market possible.
You can pick up your order at the market at 205 W. Dickson St. in the Breezeway at Nightbird Books on Wednesday from 4-7 pm. Payment is by cash or check at the market. You can also pay ahead at the market and then draw down your account for future purchases online so you don’t have to pay each time.
