Main Street Dyersburg Offers New Attractions
Created in 2007, the Main Street Dyersburg Farmers Market is a program of the Dyersburg/Dyer County Chamber of Commerce and is administered by Main Street Dyersburg. The goal of the program is to bring people back downtown through weekly markets and family events. The Farmers Market is located at the new and improved Forked Deer River Park including walking trails on the banks of the Forked Deer River, a state-of-the art playground, a dog park, and ample parking.
