And wouldn’t ya know it… a minute after I hit Publish on today’s news update, my weekly Memphis Farmers Market email shows up in my Inbox. Of course I am going to blog about happenings at the Market, even if it cuts into my Silly Goose time a little. The sacrifices I make for my readers… okay, let’s do this.
Fall Into Autumn is the theme at this week’s Memphis Farmers Market. Enjoy pleasant 94-degree temperatures as you shop under the pavilion Saturday. Master Gardeners will be on hand from 8 to 12:30 to answer any questions you have about your fall garden. Note that there will be no pet-sitting service this weekend, so let Rover enjoy the air-conditioned indoors at home while you sweat your ass off walking around shopping for fresh produce. Live music by Eric Crays and Roger Wild from 8:30 to 10. The Market happens every Saturday under the pavilion at Front and G.E. Patterson from 7 AM to 1 PM.
After a hiatus from the Market thus far in September, I WILL BE THERE tomorrow and I am going to make up for lost time. I am going to eat a frozen pop, a Smoothie, and a duffin all in the same day. Now that’s livin’ life right, my friends!
Also, don’t forget that Farm Fest is this Sunday! It’s the annual Farmers Market fall party, and what a blast it will be! Your cost of admission includes:
- Live music by Star & Micey

$40 in advance, $50 day of, $25 vendors/volunteers, $20 no alcohol. I WILL BE THERE and you should too! In the spirit of games and good times, I will be doing a little “show and tell” that evening.
That’ll do it. Off to the Goose and then Felicia’s. Be sure to scroll down and read the newsy Friday update I posted a few minutes ago.
