Little Rock River Market District
The Little Rock River Market is a public food, shopping, and entertainment nexus in the heart of downtown Little Rock, Arkansas.
About $1 billion of direct investment in the downtown district occurred between 1997 when the city was selected as the site of the Clinton Presidential Center and 2004 when the Clinton Library dedication ceremony took place. Said Little Rock City Manager Bruce Moore in 2004, "The presidential library has had a tremendous impact on our central core. It has totally revitalized downtown."
