We checked out the area when passing through for a night returning from a road trip. The area is very walkable and has several restaurant and bar options (be sure to read reviews before going to them). My only real complaint is that there were homeless people walking around begging for money. I tend to donate directly to shelters and... More

Little Rock is home for me so every time I visit, I have to come to the River Market. The strip has plenty of restaurants, entertainment spots and museums. We personally like going to Flying Fish seafood restaurant. There's a kids park with sand and swings as well as an amphitheater. The LR Orchestra plays there often as well as... More

It was kind of small. Not even a full block. There was some fresh fruits & veggies that looked good. If you are in the area & want a quick stop, this is for you. If you are used to large market areas, this will disappoint you

Very large selection of produce. A few other vendors: jewelry, crafts, toys, cloths. Lots of shade and mist fans to cool visitors.

There are many restaurants along this area. Many of the museums and stores close at 4:30 so you must get there early. The restaurants and music bars are open late.
