Thank You & See You in April!
Dear Market Shoppers,
It has been quite a year! Over 1,720 facebook fans, 120 dogs, 65 vendors, 38 wonderful markets, 36 chef demos, 20 amazing volunteers, 2 Holiday Artist sales, 3 baby goats, a Halloween parade and a Market Mash-Up! We have celebrated being named the Number #1 Farmers Market in Georgia (#4 in the nation), Atlanta's Best Farmers Market by Creative Loafing and, most recently, the Best Farmers Market in Atlanta by Atlanta Magazine!
We have also struggled to be seen by the city of Atlanta for the amazing community that we are. We've worked tirelessly to raise the funds needed to pay for the police officers and new city permit fees. In 2011, we will continue to pay these fees as well as be required to have police officers at the market. We are so grateful to the Zyman Family Foundation for establishing the matching grant and to all of our shoppers who gave to support the market.
Peachtree Road Farmers Market is a special place because of the smiling faces we see each week - farmers, artists, food producers and most importantly YOU. We notice when you aren't in your usual chef demo seat, we are excited to meet your new baby, and we love to make you smile as we fill your shopping bags with delicious local foods.
Thank you so much for supporting the 2010 Peachtree Road Farmers Market. We can't wait to see you on April 9 for opening day 2011 as we launch our 5th season.
