Weekend Happenings - Little Rock Farmer's Market

Another weekend has flown by! The weather here has been nothing short of perfect so EH and I took full advantage.

Friday night we camped out at our favorite pizza patio - US Pizza. I love their patio and the food is always delicious. Get the Salad Supreme - it's the best. Our favorite pizza is the Dave's Favorite.


Later that night, the power in our entire neighborhood went out. We couldn't figure out what caused it so what did we do? Grabbed another cocktail, put Moose on the leash and sat out on the tailgate. It was actually quite nice!

Saturday was another glorious day and the opening of the River Market Farmer's Market so off to downtown we went.



So many wonderful items - jams, jellies and fresh honey.




Beautiful bundles of blooms. Sorry, couldn't resist an alliteration.


Huge tomatoes - I really regret not getting some of these!


So many choices! You could plan your Saturday night dinner just by walking around.


I was this close to picking up on of these bird houses - how pretty!


In the end I walked away with some corn, fresh strawberries, a bundle of flowers and a block of feta cheese from the new Kent Walker Artisan Cheese.

After the market we slipped into the new Damgoode Pies that has opened up downtown to try their new beer and to enjoy the patio. 


They had clever posters up of some of the greatest fictionalized beer. King of the Hill Alamo, Family Guy Pawntucket Brewery and several more. Too funny!


One thing I want to try and talk EH into this summer is going for a bike tour downtown - I can't even remember the last time I rode a bike but I think I'd look pretty good on this aqua one!


Or if we have one too many beers at lunch we can just take the trolley around.


The rest of the weekend we spent grilling steaks on Saturday night, trying a new restaurant for lunch today and generally taking it easy. I've been on a Once Upon a Time marathon on Netflix - the visuals are cheesy but I'm liking it overall!

Hope you had a great weekend!
