Earth's Bounty returns Saturday

MERIDIAN —     Fresh produce, live entertainment and children's activities are planned for Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Singing Brakeman Park in Meridian for Earth's Bounty, a certified farmers market with the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce.

    Members of the Meridian Area Farmers Market will offer a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables for sale, and other vendors will be on hand to sell cakes, pies, jams, jellies and other homemade products.

Presenting Sponsor Greater Meridian Health Clinic will provide another health screening at the monthly festival. The clinic has joined forces with Meridian Main Street to provide the freshest in local fruits and vegetables, plus homemade, agriculturally based products created by area cooks and bakers.  Saturday's screening will be for blood glucose and blood pressure.  

    Peachie Saxon will demonstrate floral and greenery arrangements made with elements that can be found in just about anyone's yard and attendees can register to win one of her designs.

    Saturday's activities will also include entertainment by Richelle Putnam, Joey Ethridge and Amy Lott. Popular children's activities will once again include a jump house, a bungee jump and visits with Tiny, Meridian Main Street's Belgian mare mascot.

    For more information about Earth's Bounty, including vendor registration and membership in Friends of Earth's Bounty, go to and click on the Earth's Bounty banner.

    Earth's Bounty-Local, Fresher, Better will continue its second season June 1, July 6, Aug. 3, Sept. 7 and Oct. 5. Admission to all festivals is free.
