The Mississippi Farmers Market provides shoppers with direct access to more than 100 farmers and vendors, and because the fruits and vegetables were grown by our neighbors, the freshness of the produce that we feed our families can't be beat. With nearly 380 varieties of fruits and vegetables available at the Market annually, the possibilities are endless for healthy and delicious meals. The Mississippi Farmers Market is home to Central Mississippi's best selection of locally grown produce, specialty food items and works from local artists. From arugula and blueberries to yellow squash and zucchini; you'll find beef and dairy next to breads and chow chow, and check out the jewelry, wood products and paintings, the Mississippi Farmers Market has everything from A-Z! There is always something going on at the Mississippi Farmers Market - cooking demonstrations, entertainment, tasty samples, and kids activities in the "Pizza Garden." Breakfast and lunch are served at the Farmers Table located in the Market. At the Mississippi Farmers Market, we like to say it's Mississippi Grown and Mississippi Good.
How does buying Genuine MS products make a difference here in Mississippi?The Mississippi Farmers Market is the largest of it's kind in the state, and is conveniently located on High Street near the Fairgrounds in the Capital City of Jackson. Most food eaten in America travels nearly 1,500 miles from the field to your plate, but produce sold at the Mississippi Farmers Market travels an average of only 62 miles. Because we have growers who are local, they are able to pick blueberries late on a Friday afternoon and have them packaged and displayed ready to sell on Saturday morning; or sweet onions can be pulled from the ground early Saturday morning and be in the stall at the market that same morning. Flowers have been picked so recently that they are presented still glistening with dew. Locally grown, locally baked and prepared, and locally crafted. This is what makes a difference here in Mississippi. You know you are getting FRESH when you shop at the Mississippi Farmers Market because you are buying from the farmers who grew it, the bakers who baked it and the artists who made it! How can you get any more Genuine than that? More and more consumers want to know where their food is coming from, and they want to establish a connection to those who are providing it. Local chefs love to use our produce, meats and dairy in their restaurants, and are always proud to share it with their diners. Again, how can you get any more Genuine?
Here are a few locations where you can find our products.
