The Cleveland Farmers Market opens its fourth season on Saturday, June 14, 2008 at 8 a.m. The market operates every Saturday through the summer and fall from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Farmers and vendors will be selling locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables as well as eggs, honey, baked goods, jams and jellies, pickled vegetables, fresh-cut flowers, and other unique Mississippi Delta items. The market is located behind the Cleveland Post Office.
The markets goals are to create a market where local farmers and producers can sell directly to consumers and to build community by having a weekly gathering space with social opportunities. Throughout the season, the market will feature local musicians, cooking demonstrations, and other special events. Drawing from small and medium-sized farms and home gardens in the core eleven Mississippi Delta counties, the market strives to provide consumers with an alternative to conventional marketplaces.
The Cleveland Farmers Market does not charge vendor fees, and thus relies on the community for volunteers and supplies. The market has also received generous support from Strings Design, the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce, Heifer International, Delta State Universitys Institute for Community-Based Research, and the Dreyfus Health Foundation.
Behind the Cleveland Post Office, Saturdays, 8-10 a.m.
I look forward each summer to being able to get vegetables straight from the garden - just like the ones we had growing up on our farm. Nothing from the store taste nearly so good!
