Market Update

Fundraising Goal Met!

We’re so excited to announce that we’ve met our fundraising goal for the matching grant from the Zyman Family Foundation! It was the generosity of over 100 people that helped secure the funding needed to cover the police officer and city fees. As the market strives to get better every year, we can still use your support, so please keep us in mind when you plan your year-end charitable giving. Thanks to all of our supporters!

1,000 Pounds of Food
This July, the Peachtree Road Farmers Market began working with Second Helpings to donate food to the Gateway Center. So far, the market has given over 1,000 pounds of fresh vegetables and baked goods to support the 325 people who count on the Gateway Center for their daily meals.
