Farmer's Markets has been popping up in various cities and communities in record numbers over the last several years.

Philadelphia CDP and the Neshoba County Extension Service are working together to provide our citizens with a market that we think will enhance the opportunity for local producers to market their products and allow local consumers to purchase fresh home-grown products.

The Philadelphia Fresh Market @ The Depot will be operating on the third Saturday of the month through September.

This Saturday, July 20th will be our second time that we have had the market and we are very excited about the potential that this market can and will generate.

We will be open 8 a.m. until 12 noon. The market will be open July 20, August 17 and September 21 at the Depot.

The purpose of this market is to promote, provide and enhance the availability of all agriculturally based products in the local area to better meet the demands of fresh, healthy, locally grown foods for individuals, families and farmers.

All products sold at the market must be an agriculturally based product.

These products include fruits, vegetables, dairy products, eggs, honey, herbs, jams, jellies, syrups, fish, meat, poultry, seafood, seeds, flowers, potted plants, small livestock, and fowl.

Arts and crafts are not allowed.
