A Taste of Jackson was held on a beautiful evening at the Jackson Farmers’ Market. The variety of foods available included Oriental, Mexican, American and grilled. Each year the event expands out to the market area and specialty coffees are available for tasting. Startup businesses showcase their products, and community outreach agencies participate in the tasty event among the restaurants.

Tammy Buchanan and her hard working staff spend many hours and days preparing for the annual downtown event. With the outstanding growth of the Farmers Market and now the Taste of Jackson in the same venue, residents from the LIFT apartments and homes are feeling the growth downtown Jackson is seeing.
