What is it? River Market is home to a food hall, an outdoor amphitheater, a riverfront park with splash pads, and a farmers’ market.
Why go? Although the weekend farmers’ market and outdoor splash pads attract larger crowds, the best-kept secret of the River Market is inside the Market Hall. Locals line up here at lunchtimes Monday through Saturday to sample street hawker-style cuisines from Thailand, Nepal, India, Mexico, and, yes, even Arkansas.
On the banks of the Arkansas River in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains, Little Rock is an urban playground in the heart of the Natural State – and a key stop on the civil rights trail. It’s all about Southern hospitality here, and in recent years Little Rock has fostered an atmosphere where creativity and originality thrive. It’s a town full of yet-to-be-discovered musicians, avant-garde chefs, and young entrepreneurs who have given this little city some big bragging rights.
