Yokna Bottoms Farm Hosts its First Mid-Town Market of the Season in Oxford, MS

Located just eight miles south of Oxford, Miss. near the small community of Yocona, Yokna Bottoms Farm, which is named after William Faulkner’s fictional county of Yoknapatawpha, is a Community Supported Agriculture or CSA farm.

Yokna Bottoms Farm involves a community of individuals working together to produce locally grown food using sustainable agricultural practices. The farm is the largest CSA farm in the state of Mississippi and works to promote sustainable and organic agriculture as an efficient agricultural system. 

This is the fifth season of farming at Yokna Bottoms, and the farm has a 100 member CSA and sells their food weekly at the and Mid-Town Market in Oxford, Mississippi, which the local CSA farm just recently held this past weekend.
For the Mid-Town Market held every Saturday, the team behind Yokna Bottoms Farm worked hard to produce, harvest, and sell organically grown vegetables, including tomatoes, potatoes, and green vegetables including kale, lettuce, and collards. 

Darby Radcliff has more on that story, which you can watch by clicking here and see below to view a slideshow of Yokna Bottoms Farm and its recent Mid-Town Market held in Oxford.
