2016 Cotton Gin Market

Crowds from the surrounding towns and cities will enjoy views of the tree-lined lake and the sounds of southern musicians strumming on two stages as they sample, discover and purchase the best antiques, crafts, and art the south has to offer at this new but beloved event.


Located just 11 miles from Laurel, MS (home of HGTV’s Home Town), 35 miles from Hattiesburg, MS (home of the University of Southern Mississippi), 75 miles from Jackson, MS, and approximately 107 miles from the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Rasberry Greene is perfectly situated to draw large crowds of art lovers, decorators, antiques collectors, and all those who appreciate the beautiful, handmade, and delicious!

The Gin at Rasberry Greene is a rustic, industrial wedding and event venue with an array of features including a lighted deck, wrap-around porch with rocking chairs, beautiful landscaping, a large lake, gravel drive and plenty of space for setup and take-down.


The strong Rasberry Greene brand has been crafted and cultivated over several years of social media engagement, professionally-managed online marketing and branding, and local buy-in initiatives. The 2016 Cotton Gin Market will be promoted with beautiful imagery, expert marketing tactics and all manner of advertising, social media campaigns and online marketing strategies.

With an intense focus on hospitality and service, the staff at Rasberry Greene will be on hand to help throughout the event. Hospitality space will be provided exclusively for vendors, complete with air conditioning, seating and refreshments.
