Meridian real estate for sale today brings together the charm of this city's village roots and its status as a growing modern city. No better example lies in the contrast between the Meridian Farmer's Market and the new Village at Meridian. The market beckons with technicolor offerings of fresh fruits and vegetables, family entertainment and of course, produce pulled from local farmers' gardens. On the other hand, the Village at Meridian will open up more than 500,000 square feet of space, dedicated to restaurants, shops, offices and entertainment and represent the best that modern architecture has to offer.
