Summer is back, and that means the return of weekly farmers markets at University District. 

The University District Development Corporation will host the University District Farmers Market every week until Sept. 26 to promote healthier eating through access to fresh fruits and vegetables. The farmers markets will be held from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. every Thursday in the University of Arkansas at Little Rock University Plaza Parking Lot at 5820 Asher Ave.

In addition to fresh fruits and vegetables, the markets will feature crafts, plants, prizes, and healthy food demonstrations. SNAP customers can receive up to $20 worth of fresh fruits and vegetables when they use their EBT card to make an initial purchase.
