I am suprised Memphis did not already have a farmers market downtown somewhere during the spring/summer/fall months. Sounds promising. The one in downtown Nashville does very well, I don't see why one in Memphis would not do as well or better.

Here is a link to the MFM site:

The site has all sorts of useful information including the growing seasons of local produce crops.

The big farmer's market in Memphis is at the Agricenter at Shelby Farms which is closer to the "real" center of town. The one downtown is to help support the booming growth. It should also be more accessible for the Arkansas area farmers.

Did anyone happen to go? If so, how was it, were the crowds good?

The CA made it sound like the downtown Farmers Market did quite well.
