The Melrose Community Farmers' Market is held in Heritage Park on Bellamy Ave (SR 26) in Melrose. Seeking to promote local commerce, the market is a "primary producers only" market, where you can find the finest of locally created goods.
A wide variety of products offered at the market are provided mostly by vendors coming from within a 10 mile radius of the Park. From farm fresh produce to house plants, baked goods or outdoor furniture, metal crafts and jewelry, honey, eggs, fresh catfish or smoked mullet--there is something there for everyone. And because the goods are the product and pride of local merchants, the quality is superior.
The market is also a celebration of the community of Melrose, where friends and neighbors take the opportunity to come out and join together. To the backdrop of the melody of local musicians, the crowd ebbs and flows, and the social aspect of this gathering cannot be denied.
