First night of Farmers Market in Livingston brings dozens of people in Madison County together


LIVINGSTON, Miss. (WJTV) — Within just an hour of the 2021 Town of Livingston annual Farmers’ Market, people were showing up to eat, drink and shop by the dozen.

“It brings our community together,” said Lindsay Kellum, event coordinator. “With the pandemic, lots of local businesses we’re struggling, and we couldn’t do it last year. We’re glad to have it back this year!”

The event is something that Reagan Josserand missed last year.

“We missed it a lot,” Josserand said. “It’s so nice to sit out here in this nice weather. All these people here, all these people around!”

Mannsdale Upper Elementary made their debut by selling produce that they grew themselves to raise money for their school.

“We’re here to sell some vegetables from our school,” one student said. “We harvested these fresh today. We have started all of them from seeds, and now they’re healthy vegetables!”

Angie Adair made her debut as well, selling her glass designs. She said with being a new entrepreneur, the market is a great way to dive in.

“I’ve just recently started this business,” Adair said. “It’s a great way to kick it off and get it in front of people so they can see what I make.”

If you missed this Thursday, you have every Thursday until July 1 to choose from.
