Our ?Home Town? morphs into a pop-up party on Thursday nights in Downtown. It?s when the Laurel Farmers' Market is held, and farmers and food purveyors, plus artists, musicians, and singers, fill a one-block area of North Magnolia Street. The main artery of the goings-on?between Central Ave and Oak St.?is closed to cars during the event, so you can stroll, sample, relax, and take in the lively scene. Live music adds to the festive atmosphere; the event has long been a place where you can see local acoustic and electric bands perform for shoppers as they stroll along. Overall, the Laurel Farmers Market is a sensory treasure trove, with amazing sights, smells, sounds, and of course tastes - a summer highlight in Jones County.
