Oxford Community Garden

City-run farmers’ market doesn’t sprout

After several heated meetings and discussions on the creation of a city-run market, the necessary legislation needed to form the market died in committee in Jackson. For the city to run the market, it needed approval from the Mississippi Legislature in the form of “local and private legislation.” That bill, sponsored by Oxford Rep. Brad Mayo, died on the last day of the legislative session. (May 9, 2012, Page 1)

Grant OK’d for new farmer’s market

The Oxford Board of Aldermen voted to accept a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Tuesday that would go toward the salary and other administration costs associated with starting up a new farmer’s market on city property. (March 21, 2012, Page 1)
