From Alpharetta to Woodstock, there are about three dozen farmers markets in the metro Atlanta area, offering everything from apples to exercise classes.
At the Roswell Farmers and Artisans Market, for example, you can buy local sustainably grown fruits and veggies, baked goods and honey, while listening to live music, watching a chef demonstration or attending a free exercise class.
At the Norcross Community Market you can get to know the farmers and ranchers behind the market. There are also special days, like Pico De Gallo Day on Aug. 24, celebrating Mexican culture.
So we asked for you to vote for the best farmers market in metro Atlanta.
Claiming the No. 2 spot is Grant Park Farmers Market, with its variety of vendors offering everything from fruits and vegetables to honey and baked goods.
But the winner was an overwhelming choice, garnering more than a third of the votes.
Decatur Farmers Market is open twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with vendors offering smoked trout, fermented beverages, homemade pasta and sauces, fresh eggs, and leather journals and jewelry.
