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. – 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. Both are open Monday to Saturday 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.

About the Author

Hello! I'm Jalyn Souchek, the Director of Content for I Love Memphis Blog! I love calling the 901 home. When I'm not running the blog you can find me cheering on the Grizzlies, at a concert, exploring a new restaurant or kicking back at one of our breweries. I hope you'll love experiencing Memphis with me.

Build your perfect Memphis meal:

I love to eat so if I were to have only one meal left.. I’m going all out. I’d start with an app of Gumbo Fries from Blue City Cafe or Bayou Fries from Chef Tam, wings from Good Fortune or Central’s (honey gold and Jamaican Jerk), potato salad from Fat Larry’s, side of bbq spaghetti from Bar-B-Q Shop, and fried okra from Soul Fish. All paired with a Beale Street Brewing Space Age Sippin’.

Your most memorable Memphis moment:

College GameDay on Beale Street. That was an electric and perfect morning. I was still working in news then and was able to take it in up close and on the stage at some points. The fun and joy of everyone down there that morning is unbeatable.
