What's at the Vicksburg Farmer's Market this Saturday?




At the Market: Saturday, June 4 Master Gardeners will be on hand to discuss this year’s Hottest New Plants. Learn what’s “in” and what’s “out” from Master Gardeners Charlotte Coutch and Nancy Gates and Master Gardener Intern Tom Skinner. A list of growers will be offering peppers, eggplant, squash, zucchini, beans, tomatoes (red & green), cabbage and watermelon from area farms. **Bakers sell artisan breads, cakes, cookies, and preserves While we appreciate your enthusiasm, please know that market rules prohibit vendors from selling before 8:00 a.m. Feel free to catch a few extra minutes of sleep on your weekend morning!


In addition to all the great vendors, the Vicksburg Farmers Market depends on the help of volunteers each Saturday.  If you’re willing to sign up for a Saturday shift, please e-mail [email protected].  Volunteers typically offer direction to customers and assist vendors — when needed — to set up booths.  As the summer wears on, we’ll need more help.  Please don’t just shop the market.  Volunteer to work on a market Saturday if you’d like to see this great summer event continue!
