The City of Laurel, in partnership with Laurel Main Street and Agape Church, is proud to present the 2018 season of Downtown Thursday.

The Laurel Farmers Market is back at a NEW TIME, 5pm-8pm, and NEW LOCATION, the 300 block of North Magnolia Street in front of our downtown merchants like Adam Trest Home, Southern Antiques, JParker Reclaimed, The Loblolly Boutique and many more. The Laurel Farmers Market is not only a great place to purchase local produce and goods, but it is a place to enjoy the day with family and friends. This year, to celebrate our Opening Day, we will be have Jackson-based musical artist Kerry Thomas and every market will have live music on the Magnolia Street Stage! The Laurel Farmers Market is a rain or shine event.

“We are hoping to add vendors to the market so we can provide a nice selection of goods. The number of vendors usually increases as the growing season progresses, but there is still time to participate,” said Nece Hill, Laurel Farmers Market manager.

Downtown Movie Night begins at 8pm at The BACKLOT, located on the corner of N. Magnolia and Library Street. This year offers a bigger screen, more space and an even better experience!
