What better way to make yourself feel better than to visit your local farmers market, coffee house or cafe! Our creative team spent the morning at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market in Atlanta today and it was great to see people out shopping and supporting local businesses, farms, and artisans. If you can't make the market or live in a different city, most of the vendors have e-commerce stores on their website and can ship products direct to you door. Check the vendor list for more details at the PRFM website.
14 Years of Local Goodness
2020 marks the 14th season at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. Since its opening, the market has grown to be a leader in the good food community. PRFM is one of the largest producer-only farmers market in the state. Producer-only means that everything at the Market has been grown, raised, or made by the seller, ensuring fair prices for both the vendors and the consumers.
The Peachtree Road Farmers Market is open on Saturdays from 8:30am-12pm, with some modifications that will help maintain social distancing for the common good. Every effort is being made to keep the market safe for vendors and shoppers.

Why are they open?
The City of Atlanta has deemed farmers markets to be an "essential business" because farmers markets offer an efficient way for residents to obtain a diversity of healthy food options in an outdoor setting. Shopping at farmers markets gives you a way to acquire groceries while supporting your local economy, which is especially critical in this time of uncertainty.
