FAYETTEVILLE, AR-- Folks in Fayetteville hit the square on Saturday for the first farmers market of the season.

Manager, Teresa Maurer said the event is a perfect place for friends and family. "It's an outdoor outing, it's a chance to buy some great things, it's a chance to see your friends, and it really is the heart of Fayetteville."

The market will be open each Saturday through November, plus Tuesday and Thursday mornings through October.
