DOWNTOWN JACKSON — The West Tennessee Farmer’s Market has something besides its fresh fruits and vegetables to brag about. The farmers’ market, located in Downtown Jackson, was voted the favorite farmers’ market in West Tennessee by readers of The Tennessee Magazine. More than one million readers saw West Tennessee Farmers’ Market listed among The Best of Tennessee winners in the October 2013 edition. “We are extremely proud of our Farmers’ Market,” Mayor Gist said. “Nona Brummett and the vendors take great pride in their work. The people of Jackson and throughout West Tennessee are fortunate to have such a vibrant place to enjoy nature’s bounty.” Voters selected their favorites in 26 categories in the publication’s readers’ choice awards contest. Corn, blueberries, tomatoes, peaches, cabbage, you name it; the Farmers’ Market has it all when it comes to fresh-grown vegetables. More than 50 vendors sell produce to hundreds of folks each week during the growing season. Some Saturdays, attendance reaches 1,500 visitors. Vendors sold more than $1 million of produce during the past year. In addition to produce, the West Tennessee Farmers’ Market sells milk, flowers, canned or baked items, and meats.
