Every Thursday from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm, the Downtown Clarksdale Farmers Market, a project of Revitalize Clarksdale, is a happening place. Located at 326 Blues Alley, the Train Depot/Tourism Spot, the atmosphere is fabulous! Live music fills the air as well as the chatter among families and friends as they meander between the various tents of vendors, purchasing items and saying hello to one another.

A vendor testimonial from Charlotte with Wildflour: “I doubled my offerings this week and still sold out before 6pm! I was excited to have a line at my tent before the markets opening time. I’ll be back next week!!” 

Vendor Coordinator Laura Barnaby said, when asked what her hopes were for the future of the Clarksdale Farmers Market: “…that more people of every age, class, color will learn to appreciate growing, eating and sharing local fresh products as a way to connect with our community and would love to see some of the big ag land give way to specialty product (for our kids and the environments future).”

Come on. Do something different. Meet someone new. Buy locally grown produce and good eats. Get your portrait done in 10 minutes by Nathan Mullins. Listen to some home grown music. Put it on your calendar for Thursday nights in Clarksdale, 4-7pm.
