Farmers Market Saturday June 23rd


The market is held from 8am-1pm in the municipal lot adjacent to the First United Methodist Church on Park St. There is plenty of parking both on the street and in the lot behind the Purple Rose Theater.

The offerings of the market are continuing to grow please me! And I am so excited to share our featured vendor series with you all on the website, found here: I have started touring all of the veggie, fruit and meat farms so that I can get to know our vendors and their offerings better. It has been a beautiful connectivity so far and I am pleased to share their stories with you as well!

Children’s Tent
 activity will run from 9:30-12:30 and will be a discussion and activity about Food Labels.

The Jackson French Quarter Dixie Band will be rocking out amazing tunes for us from 10:30-12:30
