Atlanta-area neighborhood farmers markets are great places to meet the people who grow the fruits and vegetables you eat. The produce you purchase is grown within driving distance of where you are shopping and is at the peak of the growing season so it’s at its freshest and tastes best.

Market seasons vary in length and many markets are open year-round. Some markets are indicated as “producer-only”: That means there are no resellers at the market, only vendors who grow, harvest or make the produce and products they sell.
