Winchester Farmers Market
Open daily 8:30 a.m. – 9 p.m. 6616 Winchester Rd.
It’s called a “farmers market”, but it’s really an international, indoor grocery store. This place is amazing. It’s overflowing with a huge selection of foods, including and especially Asian and Latin American cuisine. Think every kind of produce, fresh meats, live seafood, and all manner of international snacks, treats, packaged foods, and other items.
Sunday – Saturday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., markets at 7170 Hwy 51 N. and 6850 Singleton Pkwy both in Millington
Jones Orchard offers their homegrown apples, berries, plums, nectarines, peaches, strawberries, and more at their two roadside markets in Millington. As of May 2023, both are open daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Jones Orchard also appears regularly at the Memphis Farmers Market, the Cooper Young market, and the Hernando market.
Check out the ripening calendar (where you can also pick your own!). Fresh-made jams and homemade pies are available inside the market. They’re on Facebook and Instagram.
Those of you who think things are best enjoyed after hard work (or those of you who are super picky) should make a trip to Jones Orchard if open. The orchard has patches of pick-your-own peaches, blackberries and strawberries, and a pumpkin patch in the fall.
