Located in the heart of Little Rock on the banks of the Arkansas River with rich entertainment, dining, shopping and cultural experiences. Had two open air pavilions but nothing going on at the time I was there. Nice district area.

By the time we got down to the market, most of the vendors had left. The shops and restaurants were fantastic, though. We went up on the bridge and walked the paths around the river. It was beautiful.

Every city needs a vibrant downtown, so this part of Little Rock is a great place to visit. It is conveniently located near great restaurants, museums, and other similar attractions. Once the tech park has been built, it should be even a bigger and better experience!

We loved this place! Public restrooms! Clean! Lots of food, and the bike rentals! Across the street is a great icecream shop! There was easy parking...it was at Markham and Common. We walked a few blocks to get to the River Market. We also stopped in the Wildlife Center...very friendly people, lots of live animals...

That is a reference to the other name of Faneuil Hall in Boston. Food stalls, shops, and a nice market atmosphere in downtown Little Rock, walking distance to the Clinton library and on the little trolley route. There is also a walking trail nearby. Enjoyed lunch at one of the little stalls.

Plenty of restaurants, bars, shops. Lively area. Disliked that many of the food shops inside the River Market itself closed early.

It's been years since I've been to the River Market and was highly disappointed. The worse part was that it smelled...won't be going back.

I was in town for LIttle Rock Marathon and this was the location for all of the race happenings. It was a great area to host pre and post race activities.

In the summer, there's no other place to visit on a Saturday morning than the River Market. There's fresh produce and lots of people. Great crowd.
