Arkansas Local Food Network

The Arkansas Local Food Network seeks to connect farms to tables, growers to customers, and people to their communities.

Buying Local Made Easy

Our Local Food Club members enjoy easy access to local food year round.  Every week, customers can order through the market website at their leisure, and they have the option of picking up Saturday or Monday.  The Local Food Club runs year-round and offers such a variety of products that our customers can do all their grocery shopping through us!

The FRESH Directory

FRESH is our digital and print directory of Little Rock and North Little Rock community and school gardens, area farms and market gardens, hunger relief efforts seeking donations of local food, farmers markets, restaurants and food stores with local options, and food and garden organizations.  Take a look at FRESH and re-appreciate all that's happening with local food in Arkansas!

The Community Fund

The Community Fund is an annual fund for non-profit, community-based projects concerning local food.  Define said projects how you will; what's important is that we've got a grant for your project!  We take applications beginning each Summer, and vote on a recipient(s) by early Fall.  The grant sum may vary, depending on how many recipients there are.   

Check out the application HERE.   We are currently taking applications!

Kiva Zip Micro Loans: Crowd Sourcing in Arkansas

The Arkansas Local Food Network works as a Trustee for Kiva Zip, a non-profit that mediates crowd sourced micro loaning to small businesses and individuals in the United States.  With the arrival of 2013, Kiva Zip brought its work to Arkansas, and within a month, thousands of dollars were raised and distributed to farms, businesses, and entrepreneurs, including our very own Falling Sky Farm, whom ALFN was happy to sponsor and assist in receiving the full $10,000 loan.
