In this series, we visit businesses, hot spots, and fun places around the community, telling the story with photographs.

For the latest Kosciusko Photo Tour, Kosciusko Attala Partnership CEO Kel McDowell visited the Farmers Market. At its new location at the intersection of highways 35 & 12, adjacent to the Attala County Coliseum, the Farmers Market is open Wednesdays (8am-12pm) and Saturdays (7:30am-12pm) during the season.

Among other amazing products from local farmers, you can find: tomatoes, English cucumbers, yellow squash, zucchini, collards, mustards, turnip greens, green onions, radish, broccoli, strawberries, basil, dill, thyme, sage, plants, flowers, and even baked goods!
