About the Market
The Farmers’ Market will open for the season on April 28, 2018.
Thank you all for supporting the local farmers’ market at 520 North Main Street.
The market is a Get Healthy Desoto project and St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church was a valued partner and our home for our first seven years. Due to circumstances outside of our control, a move became necessary in late 2015. We hope you’ll visit us, as we’re excited to show off to old and new customers alike!
All items sold at the market are grown or homemade 100% by our local vendors. Buy fresh, local at the De Soto Farmers’ Market.
Watch for upcoming events to help support the market, such as our trivia night (watch ourFacebook posts for more information).
Regular market hours are Saturdays, May through October,8 a.m. to 12 noon.
Every week we have exciting goods offered by our local vendors, including fresh produce, honey, jellies, jams, poultry, beef, pork, lamb,baked goods, seedlings, plants, crafts, jewelry, soaps, etc. (Not all items are offered every week.)
We have live music for your listening pleasure most Saturdays from 9-11. We also have activities for the kids from 9 a.m. to 11a.m. at our Kid’s Corner.
EBT-We accept SNAP cards. You will need to go into the market building and use your card to get $1 tokens that can be used for produce, meats, bread, etc.
Double Up Food Bucks-We’ll match every $1 you spend with another $1 FREE so you can buy more fruits and vegetables, up to $25 more per day. Click here for more information about how it works.
POP Club-Stands for Power of Produce. Kids who sign up on the first Saturday of the month will receive $2 worth of tokens that can be used to purchase produce at the market. The tokens can be used for produce any Saturday but sign-ups are only on the first one of the month. Be sure to look for specials from the vendors. They frequently put out special items just for the kids that cost $2.

Come out and enjoy the best place to be on Saturday mornings.
