Market Talk


Downtown Benton Farmers Market

We spent a recent Saturday morning at the marvelous Downtown Benton Farmers Market. It was Opening Day with a great crowd and a nice variety of vendors. Anyone who has spent any time in Benton knows how much pride the hometown folks take in their community and the market certainly reflects that. In this "Market Talk" we speak with Grant Watts who tells us how the market has evolved, how they've navigated the pandemic and what's ahead in 2021.
