Celebrate Atlanta Farmers Market Month

Posted By on Mon, Aug 6, 2012 at 4:56 PM

To further farmers market awareness, the USDA has named Aug. 5-11 National Farmers Market Week. But in Atlanta, 9 community farmers markets decided to celebrate three weeks longer making August Atlanta Farmers Market Month. Participating markets include Clarkston, Decatur, East Atlanta Village, Grant Park, Peachtree Road, East Lake, Truly Living Well, and Tucker. Several local restaurants have also pledged their support; and on designated days (see below), will donate a percentage of their proceeds to support the markets.


August is also the last month to vote for your favorite market in America's Favorite Farmers Market Contest sponsored by American Farm Land Trust. So far, Snellville Farmers Market has the most votes (1649), followed by Riverside (548), Marietta Square (80), Peachtree Road (37), and Canton (37). Voting closes at midnight on Sept. 3.
