What is sold at the Market?
The Downtown Mesquite Farmers Market offers a variety of items with one thing in common: point of origin. Produce sold at the market has to be grown in the area. Artisan goods, including food, must be produced by the maker who is at the market.

Why can't I find a particular item of produce?
The Downtown Mesquite Farmers Market requires that all produce sold at the Market be grown in the area. This means that if a produce item is out of season or not grown in this area, it will not be available at the Market.
