Movie Nights are back and going to be better than ever!! We have some fun themes planned for this season of Movie Nights so bring your friends and family and join us on the lawn of the Downtown Rogers Farmers Market. Movie will start 30 minutes after sunset.

Dory is a wide-eyed, blue tang fish who suffers from memory loss every 10 seconds or so. The one thing she can remember is that she somehow became separated from her parents as a child. With help from her friends Nemo and Marlin, Dory embarks on an epic adventure to find them. Her journey brings her to the Marine Life Institute, a conservatory that houses diverse ocean species. Dory now knows that her family reunion will only happen if she can save mom and dad from captivity.

Every Saturday May 6 – October 28, 2017 | 8am to 1pm | Vendor List

The City of Rogers purchased an auto repair shop in 2015 on Cherry Street, and has renovated the space to be home to the new Downtown Rogers Farmers Market, managed by Main Street Rogers. The market opened April 30th of 2016, the market opened with over 40 vendors in drive-up bays. The indoor-outdoor facility is very unique and vendor friendly, and is expected to attract some of the best vendors from Northwest Arkansas to sell their goods.

The new market will not only be a place for farmers to have a permanent home to sell their goods, but also a gathering place for the community with space for food trucks and access to the Razorback Greenway trails which goes through the market itself and continues down to the new Railyard Bike Park.  Families will now be able to ride their bikes to the market together, shop the market, dine together, and enjoy the activities of a revitalizing and growing Downtown Rogers district.
