Maybe it's our freshly shucked corn, vine ripened tomatoes, plump blueberries, juicy watermelons, and a kaleidoscope of peppers, peas, and potatoes. It could be the sweet and savory local honey, or dairy products that are so abundant across the state. Fresh baked bread, or a jar of tangy pickles will add to your dining pleasure. Mississippi's Certified Farmers Markets provide fresh fruits and vegetables sold in a facility where you can be sure that the food you are buying is safe; a place where you know how the food was grown and where it was grown.

Mississippi, it's where freshness grows.
