Hey Folks, it's August!! And the Midtown Farmers' Market is going strong. The weather is supposed to be beautiful, so come on out and spend a little time at the market. We still have the best fresh Mississippi products that you can find anywhere. Try some and we know you will be back. Here at the Midtown Farmers' Market it is prime-time for your certified Mississippi products. You can find fresh watermelons, cantaloupes, peaches, and figs. There will be plenty of tomatoes, peas, green beans, baked goods, fried pies, jams, jellies, meat, flowers, and so much more. Fresh is always better and that's what you will find here at Midtown Farmers' Market!!

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.
