It’s what you’ve been waiting for!

The revival of the Petal Farmer’s market is apparently what many have been waiting for.  Over 30 vendors were on hand for the first market of 2018.  It was a smashing success!  The amazing thing is that the fresh produce is still yet to come.  Cool weather this spring has delayed many crops.  But, that didn’t bother the hundreds that came to the market last week.

The Petal fire department brought the BIG firetruck for the kid’s to explore. Live rabbits and chickens brought smiles to all of the children and the variety of booths brought smiles to their parents.  Live music and food vendors rounded out a wonderful day of family friendly fun.

Plan on the market expanding every week and make it a part of your plans for the 3rd Saturday of the month.   More produce and vendors will be coming on board as the season progresses.

Petal Farmer’s Market – It’s Back!

WOW!  Petal is excited about the return of our Farmer’s Market.  There will be a few changes to the market….for the better we hope.  Not only will the market offer fresh produce and products from locally grown fruits and vegetables, but it will also offer art, crafts, homemade soaps, food vendors, entertainment and more!  It will also be much more visible.  The new location is on Central Avenue directly across the street from the Petal Middle School gymnasium.

The market will be open on the 3rd Saturday of each month beginning on April 21 and lasting through the growing season.  On April 21, the Petal Fire Department will have a fire truck on hand for children to investigate.  Also, look for the live animals for the kids to see.  Every weekend will have unique activities for the family to enjoy.

Help us grow the market by supporting the vendors and visiting every weekend.  The market welcomes church and civic groups that would like to sell items for fundraising.  Those interested in participating as a vendor can pick up an application at Grand Central Outfitters located at 126 E. Central Avenue.  You can also call the chamber office to have a form emailed to you.  See you at the market!
