The River Market opened with great fanfare in Little Rock in 1996. The Market is the cornerstone of a $300 million riverfront development project designed to utilize the scenic charm of the Arkansas River, Riverfront Park and existing historical structures along the riverfront. The River Market District is located within the oldest section of the city, known as the Quapaw Quarter. Serving as one of the River Market District's cornerstones, the Central Arkansas Library System has revamped a 1920s-era warehouse into Little Rock's $12 million main library facility.
Ottenheimer Market Hall is a year-around, indoor market encompassing 10,000 sq. ft. and features a 40 ft. vaulted roof. There is also an outdoor farmers market with two covered pavilions totaling 15,000 sq. ft. It is a beautiful, elegant structure that fits well with adjoining buildings. The development and construction of the Little Rock River Market reflects the continued national growth of farmers and public markets, selling seasonal foods and having a year-round indoor, fresh food market. Public markets offer opportunities for producers, consumers, and community planners to devise new strategies for improving the distribution of food in areas where consumer access to fresh agricultural products is limited.
