The Starkville Community Market hit a record-breaking attendance milestone on Saturday surpassing the previous year’s total season attendance.
In its first ten markets this year, the Starkville Community Market has seen 5,348 customers. The 2021 summer season overall total was 5,327.
The Starkville Community Market has grown significantly since the COVID-19 pandemic began thanks to the help of its strong advisory board and supportive sponsoring businesses.
The Starkville Community Market is held at Fire Station Park at the intersection of Russell and Lampkin Street in downtown Starkville, and runs each Saturday morning beginning at 8 a.m.
Each market features live music, various children’s programming, and the Mayor’s corner where residents can meet and greet Mayor Lynn Spruill. Stay up to date throughout the season by following the Starkville Community Market’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts and by visiting the market website.
Due to increasing fuel prices, the market offers produce vendors a mileage grant for those interested in participating. Contact Ag Manager Tabitha Fulgham at [email protected] for more information.
The Partnership is comprised of the Starkville Area Chamber of Commerce, Oktibbeha County Economic Development Authority, Starkville Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Starkville Main Street Association.
