||More than 75 colorful buildings dating back to the turn of the 20th century line this magnolia-and-oak-filled square. They've made it onto the National Register of Historic Places, as has the commanding 1857 Greek Revival courthouse. (The Gallery, across Liberty Street from the courthouse, still has a drawer marked "Opium" from 100 years ago, when it was a pharmacy.) The town's southern charms lure visitors, most notably during the Canton Flea Market Arts & Crafts Show held each May and October. www.cantontourism.com

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. To locate a Certified Farmers Market near you, visit www.msfarmersmarket.org
Mississippi, it's where freshness grows.
