Johns Creek Farmers Market extended to April to October

March 18, 2015

Farmers MarketThe Johns Creek Farmers Market is back, but by popular demand, the market now runs from spring to fall.

Formerly limited to just the summer months, the Farmers Market will be open Saturday mornings from April 18 to Oct. 31.

“People want to eat healthier and to be able to pick locally grown produce,” said Recreation Director Kirk Franz. “The feedback we were getting is that they wanted more opportunities to do that. By extending the time the market is available, we also can provide produce that ripens earlier in the spring and later in the fall.”

The market, located at the Amphitheater at Newtown Park on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., features local farmers and vendors with organic and/or sustainable foods and produce. In addition to healthy things like tomatoes, lettuces, and squash, vendors sell a variety of hand-made goods and natural produce, such as flavored balsamic vinegars, free-range eggs, artisanal cheeses, jams and jellies, and pastas.
