The first time I've seen it this year was this afternoon. They get these "Arkansas Sweets" melons from a White River farm on the outskirts of the greater Tupelo, Arkansas metroplex. The Melon Wagon sets up at 12th and Pine in Little Rock. You can't miss it.
I'm goin in.
Sweet and Juicy.
They range from $9-$12, depending on size. Cantelopes are about 3 bucks. The folks here and very nice and they'll load the melons in the car for ya.
Sure, they're not Hope Watermelons. Wanna know why? It's because these are better. That's right- I said it. Blasphemy you say? I say go try one of these bad boys.
