Locavores Love Oxford's Midtown Farmer's Market

I recently learned the term “locavore” from a friend. A Locavore is someone who is interested in eating locally produced food. According to the great Wikipedia, “local food” is grown within 100 miles of purchase or consumption.
If you haven’t jumped on the Locavore bandwagon yet, you should, especially if you live in Oxford.
Honestly, I’m often skeptical of these “fads”, thinking that it must be incredibly difficult to find locally sourced, grown, produced, owned, and sold products. But then I visited Oxford’s Midtown Farmers Market. Seriously, they’ve got it all! Vendors sell everything from locally grown sunflowers to jams made of local berries to Mississippi Gulf Coast shrimp (which is outside the 100 mile limit, but still supporting Mississippi).
If you find yourself out and about on Wednesday (8 a.m. to 1 p.m.) or Saturday (7 to 11 a.m.) mornings in Oxford, stop by the Midtown Shopping Center on North Lamar.
Visit www.mtfarmersmarket.com for more information, including vendors, music, and more!
