More Arkansas food-based gift ideas this morning... and this one's a biggie. I mean, really, what says "I love you" more than three months of good, Arkansas-grown food? Well, just because the harvest is over, doesn’t mean you have to go without fresh Arkansas-raised vegetables and fruit for the winter. Arkavores rejoice: fresh produce and products are available year-round through the Certified Arkansas Farmers Market online. You can go on the website to find out what’s available and set up for a Saturday morning pickup.
Here’s where you’ll find things like pecans, sweet potatoes, Arkansas black apples, dairy products and eggs, all grown here in-state. Better yet, gift your loved one with a Basket-A-Month subscription; each month, the recipient will receive an email to confirm a pickup of a basket containing fresh eggs, milk, produce and more. A gift that lasts three months or more and which helps Arkansas farmers and producers. RANGE: Basket-A-Month is $180 for three months; more months may be purchased. ONLINE: www.arkansasfood.net for Basket-A-Month, cafm.locallygrown.net for shopping. PHONE: email for number. PICKUP: By arrangement & at 6th & Main in North Little Rock on appointment.
