Waiting with anticipation for the Peachtree Road Farmers Market 2013 opening on Saturday, April 6th? Us, too. In the meantime, come celebrate all the good things in season now with a Farm Burger Buckhead dinner benefiting PRFM. On Feb 28th at 8pm, Farm Burger will host a special supper (4 courses...but probably 6) featuring some of your favorite farmers. Reservations are required and limited spots are available, so RSVP at 404-816-0603 starting Friday, February 15, to save your seat at this lip-smacking, PRFM-supporting benefit (cost is $39 + bev, tax & gratuity).

Reusable Bag Design Contest
Artistic designs will sprout in the minds of Atlanta high school students as COUNTRY Financial and Peachtree Road Farmers Market launch their first reusable bag design contest. This year’s theme is “Sprouts in the City.”
Atlanta high school students are invited to use their creativity to show what Peachtree Road Farmers Market, and this year’s theme, “Sprouts in the City” means to them. Ideas can be inspired from farming, Atlanta landmarks, images from the farmers market and everything in between.
The student with the winning design will receive a $1,000 scholarship. In addition, his or her artwork will be showcased on thousands of reusable canvas bags distributed to farmers market shoppers throughout the season. The bag contest will supplement initiatives to reduce waste and promote recycling.
Two runners-up will receive a $500 scholarship and have their designs featured at the unveiling ceremony.
The winning designs will be unveiled on opening day of Peachtree Road Farmers Market on April 6. All three finalists will be invited to attend.
Rules, instructions, and entry form are located here. Entries must be submitted to the address below by March 8 at 5 p.m.:
