May-October, Saturdays 7am-11am, Wednesdays 7am-12pm

September is here and market weather is looking great! There are still so many good things you can get at the market, but it won't last forever. Enjoy all the fresh fruits and veggies now and put some up for the winter. And you can pick up your pumpkins for your fall decorations, or to cook with if you prefer. You can also get some great Mississippi products created by some of the best local artisans. Look at some of the wonderful things you can get: bell peppers, cantaloupes, cucumbers, eggplant, figs, green beans, herbs, onions, pickles, pickled okra, potatoes, pumpkins, salsa, spinach, squash, tomatoes, tomato juice and good ole watermelons.

Don't forget good ole jams and preserves! Try some blackberry, cherry, blueberry, strawberry, peach, and pear. There is also honey and sorghum molasses.

How about some fresh chicken & duck eggs?

Have a sweet tooth? How about some:

Cake - carrot, lemon, blueberry, strawberry, chocolate
Cheesecake - lemon, pina coloda, chocolate swirl, Gluten free NY Style or some good ole cinnamon rolls!!

 

But wait! It's not all about things to eat... You can get flowers - annuals, perennials, hanging baskets
And from our friends the goats, you have to give these things a shot: goat milk soap, lotion, shaving cream
 

Come on out and have some fun at our Mississippi Certified Midtown Farmers' Market! We even provide free entertainment! This week pull up a chair and enjoy the performance by Steve Brewer! These are some mighty talented folks...

Our vendors are continually updating their stock and we will only be getting more and more as the weather warms up! Come on out and see it all; it seems highly unlikely you will go home empty handed...

 

For those of you interested in joining our friendly group of vendors, below you will find a copy of our new 2018 Vendor Application and 2018 Vendor Rules. Read the rules, complete the application and return it as instructed on the application, and get ready for some good times! We would love to have even more vendors this season than last year.

Certification

In 2011, the Midtown Farmers' Market recently was certified by the Mississippi Department of Agriculture & Commerce as part of their Mississippi Farmer’s Market Certification Program. Essentially, the certification means that the Mid-Town Farmers' Market is getting official recognition for something that has always been central to its mission: It is a true venue for Mississippi farmers and food artisans to sell their locally-produced food. Some markets allow vendors who re-sell vegetables that they have purchased from wholesalers or other 3rd parties.  At the Mid-Town Market, you can always count on buying a Mississippi product from the Mississippian who made it.
