Farmers’ market makes return Saturday

Published 11:42 am Friday, May 20, 2011

The Vicksburg Farmers’ Market will open for its third season Saturday and run through July 30 at a new location on Washington Street in downtown.

Organizers are hoping to catch tourists in downtown Vicksburg to see the swollen Mississippi River.

“It’s going to be a great thing,” volunteer event coordinator Kristin Meehan said. “It will be open to people who did not know we have a farmers’ market in town.”
