The website The Daily Meal has named two Memphis-area farmers markets as among the 101 best in the U.S.
Coming in at #55 is the Agricenter’s Farmers Market, about which The Daily Meal says:
“Some describe it as having ‘a kind of Southern charm;’ others as a ‘warm fuzzy sense of community.’ The Agricenter’s Farmers’ Market is made up of these things and more, including juicy, ripened tomatoes — which shoppers rave about — honey sticks, baguettes, and hanging baskets. Next door, a garden center offers tropical plants and stone garden furniture.”
Coming in at #7 is the Downtown Farmers’ Market, about which The Daily Meal says:
“With more than 50 varieties of produce, the collection of fruits and vegetables available at the Memphis Farmers’ Market ‘puts Whole Foods’ selection to shame,’ one shopper says. This market also shines in its assortment of herbs, plants, and fresh-cut flowers, as well as its meats, dairy, and artisan-made items.”
