FAQs

How often is the Market held?

The 2015 season is every Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., April through November 21.

We also have a one-day winter market the second Saturday in December from 10am until 2pm.

How many vendors do you have, and who are they?

We have more than 75 vendors selling locally-produced produce, flowers, plants, herbs, meats, eggs, dairy products, baked goods and prepared foods, as well as kitchen and garden focused artisans selling products made locally. Our vendors come to the market from the greater Memphis area, as far out as northern Mississippi, western Arkansas and middle Tennessee. Many of them are at the market every Saturday, and some are at market once or twice a month.

How is the market supported?

Memphis Farmers Market is supported by grants, memberships, sponsorships and vendor fees. The Market operates on a small budget that must support a large array of operating expenses that include insurance, permits, licenses, signage, utilities, site improvements, marketing, promotions, a market director, and more. We meet these needs through vendor fees, fundraising, foundation grants, sponsorships, donations and merchandise sales. We especially rely on generous financial donations to implement our marketing, operations, site development, health education and community relations programs to achieve our mission goals.

Where do I park?

We have free parking onsite in a large parking lot. There is also free street parking and space in the grassy lot next to the market.

Can I bring my dog?

No. It is against Shelby County Health Department rules to have dogs under our pavilion. The exception to this rule is official service animals.

MFM volunteers will be happy to pet-sit your furry friend for free while you shop. Look for the pet sitting tent on the grass by the corner of G.E. Patterson and South Front.
