Market Media: Thanks, Y’all!
Time to raise a glass of freshly made juice and toast the Peachtree Road Farmers Market! This week, on the heels of being voted Georgia’s Favorite Farmer’s Market, we were also named Creative Loafing’s favorite! Here’s what the fine folks at CL had to say about us in their annual “Best of Atlanta” issue:
Best Outdoor Farmers' Market:
Peachtree Road Farmers Market
The Morningside Farmers Market used to be the only exciting produce spot in our city. That was until the PEACHTREE ROAD FARMERS MARKET pitched its tents in the Cathedral of St. Philip parking lot a few years ago. Ever since then, the market — which has garnered the support of über chefs like Linton Hopkins of Restaurant Eugene — has steadily grown into a massive operation full of popular vendors like the H&F Bread Company, the Spotted Trotter, Moto Bene: Wood Fire Oven Craft Street Pizza, and around 50 other stands selling everything from fresh eggs to heirloom tomatoes to Savannah-caught shrimp.
Hungry for more? You’ll want to check out the footage that CNN’s “Eatocracy” shot at this week’s Market. The piece will run nationwide all next week.
Thanks to all of the volunteers, vendors and shoppers who support Peachtree Road Farmers Market each Saturday — good food for all is made possible because of you!
