The Starkville Community Market hit a record-breaking attendance milestone earlier this summer and again during its season finale earlier this December.
The Starkville Community Market hosted over 15,289 customers throughout the season in 2022, up from the 2021 total customer count of 8,099.
The Starkville Community Market has grown significantly since the COVID-19 pandemic began thanks to the help of its strong advisory board and supportive sponsoring businesses.
The Starkville Community Market is held at Fire Station Park at the intersection of Russell and Lampkin Street in downtown Starkville, and runs each Saturday morning beginning at 8 a.m.
The Starkville Community Market plans to reopen in April of 2023. More information will become available in February regarding the 2023 season.
Each market features live music, various children’s programming, and the Mayor’s corner where residents can meet and greet Mayor Lynn Spruill. Stay up to date throughout the season by following the Starkville Community Market’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts and by visiting the market website.
