Mississippi Market 2009By
More than 100 vendors are registered to showcase their products and goods at the 2009 Mississippi Market. The two-day business-to-business wholesale event will be hosted on June 4-5, 2009, at the Mississippi Trade Mart in downtown Jackson. Show hours are 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. each day.
Hosted annually by the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA), this year’s Mississippi Market offers a diverse field of products and services. More than 600 buyers and retailers from Mississippi and eight surrounding states registered for last year’s show. They represented gift shops, florists, drug stores, gourmet stores, interior designers, boutiques and clothing stores, jewelry stores, garden centers and other specialty shops.
“This year’s Mississippi Market will be bigger than ever,” said Elizabeth Taylor, one of the event’s coordinators and a member of MDA’s Existing Industry and Business Division. “We anticipate a packed house with more artisans, craftsmen and other unique Mississippi vendors on hand to showcase their products. The event is a retailer’s or buyer’s dream.”
All buyers are encouraged to pre-register by May 31. Registration, however, will be available on-site with the proper credentials. The Mississppi Market is not open to the general public.
