The Certified Arkansas Farmers' Market, Inc. is a closely governed market network that sells only products from Arkansas farms. It was created in 2008 by local farmers as a way to reduce deception at markets and protect their businesses from unfair practices by wholesalers and resellers. The market observes strict opening and closing times to ensure fair trade for all farmers. There will be no sales before or after market hours.
