South Memphis Farmers Market

The South Memphis Farmers Market is dedicated to providing access to healthy and affordable foods in the South Memphis community. It also strives to create an atmosphere that contributes to the success of local growers and producers. This area in which the building is located has been defined as a “food desert”. There is no easy access to fruits and vegetables. The South Memphis Farmers Market will provide a way for the residents of South Memphis to have an easier way to improve their health through better nutrition. This will be Memphis' first year-round full-time farmers market that will turn the once a week seasonal market into a six day a week, year round business. The SMFM has expanded into 3,600 square feet of the former Carter’s Fish Market as a Green Grocery and will include a 1200 Square Foot Demonstration and Education Kitchen.
