Time for a little road trip to downtown Camden, Arkansas on Friday, Sept. 6, for a Taste of Camden from 6PM-9PM.

It's all part of the First Friday Market where visitors can enjoy all the different types of food from Camden's favorite restaurants, caterers, and dessert makers. Tasting tickets will be available to purchase for $1 each. Choose as many different foods as you like for 1 ticket per choice.

You can find the special Evening Farmer’s Market on the Farmer’s Bank parking lot for all your fresh produce, local honey, jellies, jams, free range eggs, grass-fed meats and more. Catch the sounds of this month’s special live music from “White Mustang Band” at the corner of Washington and Adams and YES street dancing is permitted! There will be craft and artisan vendors in the market in addition to all the delicious food. Be sure to let the kids check out their special area in the market. A special Arkansas “selfie” station can be found in this month’s market, so be sure and get all those fun group pictures.

Stop by 'A Frame of Mind' to visit with this month’s featured Author: Emily Eckert Massey. Emily's love for food began as a young child cooking with her mom, who was always creating unique and healthy dishes in Camden, Arkansas.  Studying at the University of Arkansas, Emily received a B.S. in Dietetics.  Instead of taking the typical career path of a dietitian, Emily decided to further her knowledge of food by attending Florida Culinary Institute where she received a double degree in International Pastry and Culinary Arts. Her passion for cooking led her to create a personal chef business, Simply Scrumptious, LLC. She operated Simply Scrumptious, LLC in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida before moving to their home in Fayetteville, Arkansas where she lives with her husband, Jeff, and daughter, Kate. Her goal is to create beautiful dishes and to teach people how to make healthy and delicious foods by using all their senses.
