Shop local: it's a phrase we've all heard… but what does it really mean? One visit to the Memphis Farmer's Market and you'll experience our freshly-picked produce, small-batch baked goods and handmade crafts. You'll leave with an overflowing grocery bag, full belly, and a better understanding of what local is all about!
Held each Saturday from April through November, the Memphis Farmers Market offers a dazzling array of colorful produce. Picked fresh in the morning and speedily transported downtown, city dwellers and visitors enjoy the opportunity to indulge in seasonal bounties from nearby farms.
Stay for awhile and browse the fruits and veggies, homemade jams and preserves, and freshly baked sweets and treats. Pick up a new favorite mug from a local potter, necklace from a jewelry artist or wool to stitch up a warm blanket at home. Enjoy a nibble or a meal from one of the prepared food vendors.
Chances are you'll notice an extra something special in the air, too: the Market serves as a community gathering place for old friends to catch up and new friends to meet. The vibrant energy of Memphis is reflected each week as neighbors gather to enjoy a slower pace and simpler time together.
Next time you spend a weekend in Memphis, visit the Market at Central Station, South Front Street at GE Patterson in the Historic South Main District, Downtown Memphis.
And if you're here during the holiday season, don't miss their spectacular Home for the Holiday event taking place on December 10th. This special holiday market will be a seasonal celebration to remember.
