Stopping by the Hillcrest Farmers Market

Ten-year-old N. Shalin is back with her monthly take on food in Little Rock!

The farmers market is a great place to get local and fresh fruits and veggies! The Hillcrest Farmers Market is set up on Kavanaugh and is open from 7 a.m-noon on Saturdays. They always have great booths and products. There is anything from pastries to pasta sauce!

One of the venders is The Pie Hole food truck, which sells dynamite pies. I tried their lime icebox pie and it was delicious! Some of their other options are the Boston cream pie and the chicken pot pie.

The Bonta Toscana booth is amazing! They sell a divine garlic sauce that you can put on pizza, pasta and more. The sauce has a little heat to it, but is very mild.

Also, Arkansas Fresh Bakery is a great vendor to purchase bread products. Everything they make is local and fresh! Did you know that a lot of their bread products are sold at many restaurants a cross Little Rock?

Bodacious Farms is another great vendor at the market. They sell lots of fruits and veggies. I recently purchased some of their tomatoes and okra, which were great!

Freckle Face Farm is a great place to buy meat like bacon and sausage. Mylo Coffee Co. is a pastry and coffee vendor which does fantastic sweet treats.

As you can see, the Hillcrest Farmers Market is a great place to buy fresh and local food.
