May The Market Continue

NWA Daily

The Bentonville Farmers Market broke a record in sales this season, topping $1m! Though the weekly market in downtown is coming to an end, the Virtual Farmers Market is on its way. 

  • Shift: The final in-person market for the year is scheduled for this Saturday, Oct. 30, but a shift to an online option will allow you to purchase all the fresh, local foods and goods over the winter months, and year-round.
  • How it works: Customers can shop online, browse their favorite local vendors on their computer or smart phone through a mobile app. After checking out, customers can pick up their goods at 102 E. Central Ave. Thursdays from 4-6p.

Housing

Taking Initiative

CORE Architects

Project owners released plans yesterday for a new affordable housing project that will break ground in east Springdale mid 2022. 

  • For renters: The new Spring Creek Village will be for mixed-income and multi-family residents as a direct response to the high demand for affordable housing in Northwest Arkansas. It will be on 6.3 acres about 1 mile from The Jones Center
  • First steps: The project is a public-private partnership, possible due to City infrastructure contribution, Opportunity Zone tax incentives, and development funds. The hope is these resources will allow for the replication of this project across NWA.

Coler Mountain Bike Preserve

By now, you're probably familiar with Coler Mountain Bike Preserve, its beautiful trails, and the hip Airship Coffee location nestled on the grounds. It makes for a great day out in nature, but did you know you can actually camp there?

  • Not your average bathroom: Camping usually means roughing it, but at Coler, you get to enjoy the great outdoors without giving up some of your everyday creature comforts, like nice bathrooms.
  • Staycation: Camping in this beautiful spot is a great way to adventure right in your own backyard. You can not only enjoy a weekend in nature, but also enjoy all things downtown Bentonville.

If you're interested in learning more or booking a campsite, they start at $15 nightly, and you can book here.
