Memphis Farmers Market Squared
Second Location Adds More Healthy Options for Downtown
Memphis Farmers Market has announced its second marketplace, MFM2 (Squared).
This new Wednesday market is in partnership with Downtown Memphis Commission and will be located at Court Square Park in Downtown Memphis.
MFM2 will be open from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., every Wednesday beginning June 28th through September 27th.
“We welcome MFM2 to the neighborhood. This is a great opportunity for our Downtown workforce, residents and visitors to experience fresh food shopping just steps from their offices, homes and hotels. With the Court Square location, we hope this market becomes a regular Wednesday stop for Downtowners and Uptowners.”
- Terence Patterson, president and CEO of Downtown Memphis Commission
Shoppers at MFM2 will experience many of their favorite MFM vendors along with a host of new ones, including fresh vegetables and fruits from local farms, handmade pottery and other artisan products, floral arrangements, chicken, pork, sausages and eggs, as well as baked goods, baking mixes, soaps and food trucks with live music.
“It’s a true testament to MFM's mission of creating sustainable marketplaces for our vendors and shoppers. We invite the Downtown community to join us on Wednesdays to restock their refrigerators and pantries mid-week. Grab a snack or dinner at the foods trucks and relax after work while listening to live music. Consider it your Healthy Happy Hour!”
- Memphis Farmers Market Executive Director, Allison Cook
Both marketplaces accept SNAP benefits and are Pick Tennessee Farmers Markets, supported by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.
