Downtown Mississippi Farmers Market celebrates 10 years

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Good eating is what Mississippi is all about this time of year.

Local farmers were celebrated Saturday for helping to create those delicious summer meals.

The Mississippi Farmers Market Birthday Bash marked a decade of local growers in one location selling fresh fruits and vegetables.

There were cooking demonstrations, activities for kids and more.

A variety of everything from the garden or the farm can be found under one roof at the Farmers Market.

Paige Manning said "They can even find some things that you normally don't find in your grocery store and you may think, 'Well what do I do with that? How do I cook it?' That's a great thing about having the farmer here, because they can tell you how to cook it and how to prepare it and actually give you some good recipes."

You can find fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy products at the Farmers Market on High Street on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.
