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

Well Folks, we made it through another wonderful Market season. Seems like it just gets going good and then we are done. We hope everyone has enjoyed visiting the Market this year as much as we have enjoyed being able to offer you the fruits of our labor. It makes us so happy when we meet new folks and they wind up being old friends by the end of the season. All of our vendors take pride in being a Certified Mississippi Farmers Market and providing you the best they have.

In no time at all the seeds will be in the ground again and we will be preparing for our first market of 2019. Stay tuned for any updates and the 2019 opening date!!

 

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.
