Ever-loyal to weekenders is the Fayetteville Farmers Market, open Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Patrons can peruse local produce and handmade goods, as well as stop into the surrounding shops on the Downtown Square. Face coverings and six-foot distancing are required at booths and while walking around.

If you’re craving a weekend away from campus but don’t want to drive far, the Overhead Music Series in Eureka Springs might be calling your name. Here you can enjoy live music from multiple balconies on Spring and Main Streets as you stroll through downtown. Participating musicians will perform from 10 a.m.-noon, 3-5 p.m. and 6-8 p.m.
With weekend temperatures projected to climb into the 80s, Northwest Arkansans can get their last taste of summer before cold weather sweeps the Ozarks. It’s an optimal weekend to enjoy a hike through Devil’s Den or the Bentonville trails surrounding Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
If Bentonville is already on your radar this weekend, you can also immerse yourself in Nick Cave’s “Until” exhibit at The Momentary, which explores gender, race and gun violence in America through interactive and mixed-media art.
