As winter becomes spring, farmers' markets across Arkansas are preparing for another year of service.

The Little Rock Farmers Market announced Tuesday that it will open for its 39th year in the River Market on April 30 and May 4.

Officials said the market will be open every Tuesday and Saturday until October from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will be located in the two pavilions by the Riverfront Park at 400 President Clinton Ave.

Shoppers will find more than 20 produce items at the market, according to officials.

Angela Rogers, with the Angela Rogers Group for Farmers Market, said free parking is available for shoppers at the market's lot on Ottenheimer Plaza and in the River Market parking deck. Rogers said shoppers can also ask about Farmers' Market parking passes.

More information on the Little Rock Farmers Market is available at (501) 375-2552.

Meanwhile, the Argenta Farmers Market is scheduled to open every Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon starting April 6. Officials said the market will be open through October.

The Argenta market is located at 6th and Main streets in downtown North Little Rock.

Bernice Garden Farmers' Market is scheduled to open Sunday, April 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and be open every Sunday through mid-November, weather permitting.

The Bernice Garden market is located at 1401 S. Main St. in downtown Little Rock.
