GRENADA, MISS. July 6, 2011 – The Grenada Farmers’ Market, currently enjoying its first season in operation, announced today that it has gained accreditation as a Certified Farmers Market through the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce.
As one of only 14 Certified Farmers’ Markets in the State, Grenada Farmers’ Market will be featured on the Mississippi Farmers’ Market website as a CFM (Certified Farmers’ Market). It will also appear in the next issue of the Mississippi Market Bulletin.
“As a CFM, Grenada Farmers’ Market is now on the map,” said Leslie Moss, leader of the Grenada Farmers’ Market Task Force. “The strict guidelines we must adhere to will ensure that our vendors and artisans provide only high-quality, locally produced fruits, vegetables, and crafts. We are excited that by working with the Grenada Community Foundation we are able to give Grenada one more thing to be proud of.”
The Grenada Farmers’ Market is located at the old Kroger parking lot and is open every Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon, summer through fall. Vendors sell fresh fruits, vegetables, homemade jams, jellies, and preserves, and more. Local artisans sell handcrafted items.
The Grenada Farmers’ Market is a project of the Grenada Community Foundation. To learn more about becoming a vendor or volunteering, please contact Leslie Moss at 662-226-7608. To learn more about the Grenada Community Foundation, visit www.grenadacf.org or call 662-792-0002.
