Where to find 2017 farmers markets around metro Atlanta


Each spring and summer, farmers markets from Acworth to Chattahoochee Hills open for the season, joining year-round markets like the ones in Peachtree City and Marietta. The shoppers are all interested in fresh, healthy food and supporting farmers, bakers and cheese makers they’ve come to know personally.

FARMERS MARKETS

This year, we’re noting which markets participate in Wholesome Wave Georgia. The program doubles federal nutrition assistance (SNAP, WIC and Senior FMNP) dollars to increase access to locally grown food while supporting sustainable farmers and contributing to the local food economy.
