Says the magazine about farmers markets in general:
The farmers market has been boosting local economies and providing consumers with the freshest local produce since the Great Depression, when roadside stands began popping up all over the country. The South boasts some of the best farmers markets in the country, and most are set up in both major cities and small communities by May. Next time you’re wondering what to cook for dinner, stop by one of these great Southern markets and pick out something that was most likely picked just hours before.
And here’s what it said about Tupelo:
A Mississippi Certified Certified Farmers’ Market, this one in the home of Elvis Presley offers locally grown fruits and vegetables, fresh flowers, plants, herbs, dairy products, breads, pies, cakes, pastries, pickles, jams, jellies, preserves and smoked meats. Located on South Spring Street by the railroad tracks, Tupelo’s market opens May 17 and continues through October 25. (A fundraiser dinner for the market, Feast for the Farmer, is scheduled for May 16.)
