Seasonal fruits and vegetables vary from month to month—and now that September has arrived, different produce is prime for the picking. Pumpkins, apples, mushrooms, and more are officially in season right now! If you feel hungry just thinking about them, considering penciling in a trip to the Downtown Hattiesburg Farmers Market. They’re in town every Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m.
What is the Downtown Hattiesburg Farmers Market?
The Downtown Hattiesburg Farmers Market gives us a place to support local growers, artisans, vendors, and even musicians. There, you can listen to music as you shop or grab your pick-up orders.
Plus, buying from farmers markets means that you can find fresher produce at more affordable prices. Finally, purchasing items up from there will also allow us to give our local economy a boost, which can go a long way for many households this year.
The market also features a wide array of amazing goods. Some of the options you can keep an eye out for include:
- Locally grown fruits and vegetables;
- Flowers and plants;
- Handmade goods, like soap;
- Canned goods, jams, and jellies;
- And more.
The Downtown Hattiesburg Farmers Market took place yesterday—but it will be back next week at Town Square Park at 100 Main St. Each session will take place on Thursdays from 3 to 6 p.m. For easy planning, the next few dates for the event are:
- September 10;
- September 17;
- September 24;
- October 1;
- October 8; and
- October 15.
Your safety—and that of others—remains a priority for the Downtown Hattiesburg Farmers Market. They’ve taken steps to ensure that you can stay healthy, such as requiring masks for all and placing sanitizing areas across the market. Please, stay six feet apart from others, and limit visitors from your household to just one person. Thank you!
Supporting our local economy sure is sweet! From fall pumpkins to pecans for the perfect pie, you can find fresh produce, fantastic food, and more at the Downtown Hattiesburg Farmers Market. Check them out next Thursday!
