The Fayetteville Farmers’ Market opened its doors Saturday not only to a new year, but also to new diversity.
As part of a national initiative, Project for Public Spaces has awarded a $10,000 grant to the Fayetteville Farmers’ Market. The grant will provide funding for various programs aimed at involving the growing Hispanic community of Northwest Arkansas in the farmers’ market. “We have a diverse community with diverse opinions and we’re excited to entice more Latinos to come to the market,” said Mayor Dan Coody. “This market embodies everything that’s so good about our community, but it wouldn’t be possible without the citizens and the farmers.”
