Bentonville, Arkansas - Let me show you around my town

Northwest Arkansas is a really cool part of our state.
There are so many neat places and things to do and see.
 It's just a cool place to live. 

I live in Bentonville and there are some really great things here.
This weekend, we got out and enjoyed some of the things that make Bentonville unique.

Friday night after dinner, we headed downtown and stopped at this little food truck that I have wanted to try for a loooong time!

This is Crepes Paulette.
From their Facebook page- Authentic, delicious French Crepes, sweet and savory, in an open-air setting.

If you want to know more about crepes, go here.

I ordered a simple lemon crepe with butter and sugar. It was divine!

The kids and Tim shared a crepe filled with Nutella. They were in heaven!
They also serve a variety of other sweet and savory crepes.  I can't wait to try a savory crepe!

Afterwards, we walked over to the square to listen to some music.
They call this Pickin' on the Square.
Lots of people had brought their lawn chairs and others were standing or sitting on benches.  
The weather was perfect and we all had a great time.
Saturday morning, we visited the Bentonville Farmer's Market for the first time this season.
We purchased some great asparagus and broccoli and a jar of red plum jelly.
There are beautiful flowers, plants, jewelry, woodwork, hair accessories, bird houses, pet things, soaps, lots of produce and even baked goods.
A few food trucks are also there every week!
We also stopped by the unveiling of Artist Alley.
Bentonville Middle School and Junior High Art Student art work is featured.
This is located on Main St. just past the new French patisserie, Meridienne.
I cannot wait to try pastries from there!
This artwork captures some of the unique, awesome things that we are lucky to get to enjoy here in Bentonville.


I always love hearing from you!
