Looking for a convenient place to stop on your way home from work to grab fresh fruit, veggies, fish, and more? Now through October, you can swing by the East Parkway Pavilion on Thursdays from 3:00 to 7:00 PM for the Overton Park Community Farmers Market!
Formerly located at Evergreen Presbyterian Church, the market is now making Overton Park its home so that even more of our neighbors will have access to fresh, affordable food. The market accepts SNAP/EBT benefits, and is part of the AARP Fre$h Savings program, which doubles SNAP benefits on fruits and vegetables. Brochures about the program will be available at the market.
The market is a collaboration between Rhodes College and Overton Park Conservancy. It will continue through October 29 before resuming in April 2016.
Vendors for this week’s market include:
Veggies and Fruits:
Bring It Food Hub
Urban Farms – Memphis
North Memphis Farmers Collective
Rhodes College Community Garden
St. Honore Bakery
Lydia Healthy Edibles (gluten free mixes)
Arts and Crafts:
Riverside 1844 Artisanal Foods (jams, jellies and pickled items)

Puppy Cookies by Anne (awesome treats for your dog)
