From Our Market Manager

Peachtree Road Farmers Market is a home to so many people. Since its founding in 2007, we have become the state's largest producer-only farmers market, which means all items are sold by the farmer/maker with no reselling. Atlantans wanted farm-fresh produce, meats, and dairy, and the community supported the idea by supplying locally grown food and related products.

This year has been special as we've had another day to serve as a place for community. The addition of the Wednesday evening market series has provided all the delights of Saturday with a more casual pace. Families gather for farm-to fork-dinners and mid-week groceries, enjoying the fellowship while the kids enjoy the playground.

We continue to partner with Wholesome Wave Georgia to double food stamp benefits at the market and have provided over $23,000 in benefits. Not only does the program make healthy choices from local farmers more affordable, it keeps the money in the community. One of my favorite programs is our partnership with Meals on Wheels Atlanta. Each week we buy over 150 lbs. of fresh produce from our farmers at market close to provide food to local seniors in need. These are often the only fresh veggies the recipients receive. We are so proud to have supplied over 5,000 lbs. of fresh locally grown veggies to feed our senior community.

As our 10th season comes to a close, we are so grateful for another successful year! The market would not be possible without support from our sponsors: Country FinancialPiedmont HealthcareWholesome Wave Georgia, and Whole Foods Buckhead. We are grateful to our host, The Cathedral of St. Philip, our team of 31 volunteers, our farmers, vendors, and artisans. Most importantly, it is our shoppers who support the market in sun, rain, cold, and summer heat! Without your commitment to the market and to buying local, none of this would be possible.

We wish you a wonderful winter season and look forward to seeing you at our Saturday Market opening April 1-Dec 16 and our Wednesday Evening Market opening April 19-Oct 25.

Sincerely,

Lauren Carey
Executive Director

And while you're multitasking like a pro, take a quick rest, learn something, and have a little snack at this week's 10:00 a.m. Chef Demo with Atlanta's farm-to-table visionaryAnne Quatrano. You know and love her from destinations like Bacchanalia, Floataway Café, Little Bacch, Star Provisions, and most recently, her Ponce City Market restaurant W. H. Stiles Fish Camp (aka Dub’s). Plan to cross off one more item on that list by picking up a special cookbook, Summerland: Recipes for Celebrating with Southern Hospitality, and getting it signed by Chef Quatrano (books available at the Cathedral store). You're amazing. P.S. In other amazing news, there'll be shrimp for sale this week (because holiday parties need both kinds of cocktails).
