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

We're baaaaack!! So we made it through the frozen stuff, now we are heading for warmer days(or at least we hope so!). The green houses are getting warm, seeds are being planted, and in no time your Mississippi fresh produce will be making it's return to our Mississippi Certified Midtown Farmers' Market!

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.

 The first Saturday in May - May 5th is just around the corner...

For those musical performers who blessed us this past season, we hope to see more of you again this year. For those soon-to-be customers, our talented musicians are something that just sets our little Farmers' Market apart!

We are conveniently located in the Midtown Shopping Center

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.
