Saturday Market Kick-Off

Story and Photography by Eric Lusk

The first Saturday of June ended up being a scorcher… but the warm morning helped kicked off the much-anticipated season for the Main Street Market around Murfreesboro’s Historic Courthouse. Happy people, glad to be out at a public gathering, shopped local and regional vendors’ fresh vegetables, homemade cakes and pies, beef, pork and chicken, farm-fresh eggs, newly cut flowers, jams and jellies and so much more. 

For the past thirty-five years Main Street has been instrumental in decisions that affect the downtown district. From spear heading burying utilities, repairing sidewalks, creating cross walks, landscaping, beautification and street lighting to organizing free events such as JazzFest, Friday Night Live concerts, Saturday Market and the Christmas tree lighting Main Street has been a leader in the revitalization of our historic downtown.
