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

Well, another successful season has come and gone and we feel so blessed. Week in and week out you, our faithful customers and friends, came out and showed the desire for certified Mississippi products.  Fresh is always better and that's what you will find here at Midtown Farmers' Market!! We want to send our heartfelt thanks to all of you who supported us this year and look forward to bigger and better things next year! The first Saturday in May is just around the corner...

Special Note for prospective vendors for the 2018 market: Please check back in the coming weeks as we are trying to make final changes to the new applications and hope to have them up earlier this year. We hope to have as many vendors signed up and ready to go prior to the first market of Spring.

We would also like to give a big thank you to all of our musical performers this past season. These folks have got some talent!  We are leaving the last schedule of performers below, so if you have a few minutes check some of them out (Google is your friend). We hope they enjoyed being at the market as much as we loved having them there. We are definitely looking forward to seeing them next 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.
