Worth spending half a day exploring the river market area. Great eateries, bars and shops to explore. Close to the riverwalk so you can spend time at the market then walk over Junction bridge and visit the garden. Lovely way to spend a day in downtown Little Rock, Dont forget to visit the food market - great hot takeaway food... More

We loved the walk at the River Market. The sunset was beautiful . There is an elevator that will take you up to the walkway across the Arkansas River or you can take the stairs. The sunset was awesome. There is a walkway along the river that is really nice. Worth the look.

A variety of selections, parking was easy and the area was clean. Didn't have much time there and it was hot so walking around wasn't an option. Would love to go back at another time and do some shopping!

We stopped by on a weekday afternoon. A small food court was about all that we saw. There wasn't much else to see or do. We walked along the river a little. It looked like there might have been more to do if we had come by later.

If visiting Little Rock and wondering what to do, put the River Market on your list. There are many wonderful restaurants to choose from. From great steak to fried catfish, the River Market has it all. Along with many vendors the River Market offers a taste of The Rock. Down the street is the Clinton Museum and store. The Game...

The district is within walking distance from the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown. Little stores targeting both locals and visitors. Many things to see, try, and buy.

The River Market District is a great place to visit for a long weekend. There are tons of historic places to visit, endless shopping, and sightseeing a galore! Our favorite place was Riverfront Park. There was so much to see and do. It's a great place for cyclists, history buffs, and even young kids/families. The River Market District and Downtown... More
