BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The City of Biloxi hosted its first Downtown Farmers Market Festival of the summer season Thursday. The event featured all things food. Vendors sold fresh fruits and vegetables, plants, homemade sweets, local honey and even fried pork skins. 

Biloxi Main Street and the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino cosponsored the event.

Loyal customers attended the event, but so did first time shoppers.

"I'm camping at the Cajun RV, and I heard that there was a market going on in Biloxi. I called my daughter-in-law, and she came and picked me up and we're here," said visitor Gloria Woda. "It's really a nice market."

The farmers market will be open every Tuesday and Thursday. It is located under the Interstate 110 bridge at the corner of Howard Avenue and Hopkins Boulevard.
