Eric Deaton, of Oxford, at the August 16 Biscuits & Jam Farners' Market in New Albany, MS
Visitors to this week’s Biscuits & Jam Farmers’ Market had to dodge threatened rain yesterday (August 16th). They persevered, though, and were rewarded with weather a little cooler than at some previous markets.
Biscuits & Jam changed its former Saturday mornings time slot this year, moving to Thursday evenings, 4PM to 7 PM. As always, it meets on the bank of the Little Tallahatchie River in downtown New Albany.
There are two remaining weekly market days in August, on the 23rd and the 30th. Then, this popular event will close out its 2018 season. Plan to drop by, check out the wares and enjoy this popular event before the season slips away.
