A beautiful early fall weekend will welcome shoppers to downtown Corinth for this weekend’s Green Market.

This year’s third edition of the sprawling market event is set for 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday in the CARE Garden and the grounds of the Crossroads Museum at the historic Corinth Depot with proceeds going to support the museum.

“It’s going to be a beautiful day and we encourage everyone to come out,” said Museum Director Whitney Worsham.

She said they’ve had a huge interest from vendors and are anticipating a big variety of arts and crafts including lots of homemade items. Worsham said it’s the perfect time to get ready for fall with many vendors planning to offer fall-themed decor, pumpkins, and more. Vendors are coming from Alcorn County as well as throughout the region including Tupelo, New Albany, Blue Mountain, Walnut, Savannah, Tenn., Tuscumbia, Ala., and more.

There will also be food trucks on-site and much more.

“It will just be a really fun day,” she said.

Worsham said the Green Market is also an excellent chance for visitors and locals to come downtown and explore the unique shops, restaurants, and other businesses that help make Corinth so special.

Next up for the Green Market will be a shift in colors for next month as they host the annual Christmas-themed Red Green Market on November 20.

Worsham said the Red Green Market is the perfect kickoff for the holiday season with pictures with Santa and lots of handmade items that will make perfect gifts.
