Mississippi Farmer’s Market

 I always enjoy visiting the Mississippi Farmer’s Market especially on Saturdays when there is live music and all the craft vendors are set up.

 What started out on an empty lot from April – December as the Greater Belhaven Market moved in January 2012.  At the new location on High Street, the Greater Belhaven Market joins with the Mississippi Farmer’s Market.  Our neighborhood market has grown into a first class, year-round destination.
