April-November  Arab Farmers Market Opens

Farmers Market located in Downtown Arab features locally grown produce.  Because this is locally grown produce and not trucked in vegetables, market will actually start when the crops start coming in!

Once again, we will be lining Main Street with Scarecrows. Theme one to your business, group theme or sports team. It's free to participate. The Arab Downtown Association will actually be hanging the scarecrows, and we'll set up a drop off point for bringing yours by.
