Saturday Morning Farmer's Market

In Summer and Fall, the Starkville Farmers’ Market is held Saturday mornings in Fire Station Park. You’ll find locally grown food, fresh baked goods, live plants, and local crafts and art.

You’ll also find cooking and gardening demonstrations, how-to sessions, activities for kids, live music, and more to make each Saturday at the Market a fun family affair!


Baseball at The Dude

If anyone had forgotten or doubted that the best homefield advantage in all of college baseball is inside the confines of Mississippi State's Dudy Noble Field, the Bulldog faithful issued a definitive reminder on Saturday. Opponents don't simply have to defeat the Diamond Dawgs. Visitors have to conquer the cowbell-crazed home crowd as well.


Walk at North Farm

Feeling the need to get out and bike in the crisp air? Trails are located within the R. R. Foil Plant Science Research Center, commonly referred to as North Farm. Outdoor adventures coordinator Trey Harrison said the research park trails are one of his favorite outdoor activities in Starkville.


Drive to The Refuge

National wildlife refuges offer us all a chance to unplug from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with our natural surroundings. Aside from hunting and fishing, the refuge is known for nature photography and birding. The National Audubon Society has designated Sam D. Hamilton Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge as an Important Bird Area, one of five of global importance in Mississippi.
