We are primarily a producers’ market with a limited number of artisan crafts, that focus on garden, kitchen or natural products, hand crafted, and absolutely no re-sales on any items. Sales of food products, whether at farmers markets or road side stands, are regulated by the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce (MDAC) and the Mississippi Department of Health.
The sale of any food product, including produce and processed food, requires attendance at a food safety class.
If you would like to sell meat, milk, cheese, poultry or eggs you must have a Retail Food Sanitation License from MDAC.
Sale of acidified products, like pickles, require attendance at an Acidified Canning Class. Home processed low risk foods are permissible for sale with certain conditions. See the Food Cottage information below. The market works partners with the DeSoto County MSU Extension office to offer Food Safety and Acidified Food Canning classes.
