Farmers Market in Atlanta is looking to add vendors, grow
The vendors who routinely sell their wares at the Atlanta Farmers Market are hoping to see the enterprise grow in the coming months.
Farmers from within a 50-mile radius come to the market held downtown, on the large lot behind the police station, which can be easily entered from Louise Street. They can be found there now on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, usually from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.
“If there’s still customers coming in at 10 o’clock, we’ll stay there and service them,” said area farmer William Johnson who, along with his wife Tammy, can frequently be found selling produce at the market.
The activities of the market, sponsored by Richardson "No Bull" Insurance, typically run from June to September.
“Some of us have fall gardens that we plant, and we continue to run all the way up to the third frost,” Johnson added.
Vendors are hoping to draw not only more customers, but more sellers to grow the market.
“We’re looking for more vendors,” Tammy Johnson said.
