memphis area farmers markets OPEN DAILY/MOST DAYS

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.

Jones Orchard

Monday – Saturday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., markets at 7170 Hwy 51 N. and 6850 Singleton Pkwy (latter currently closed) 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 March 2022, the Hwy 51 Market is open 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and the Singleton Pkwy Market is closed for the season.

Jones Orchard also appears regularly at the Memphis Farmers Market, the Cooper Young market, and the Hernando market. Check out the ripening calendar. Fresh-made jams and homemade pies are available inside the market. They’re on Facebook.

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.

 More info about the other area farmers markets coming soon!
