As much as this southern belle LOVES her college football (WAR EAGLE y’all and Go Tigers), I LOVE summer for the all of the amazing local farmers markets!!! ‘Cause it sure isn’t because of the Atlanta humidity! We don’t call it Hot ‘lanta for nothing! Plus there’s that whole glistening thing (because southern ladies don’t sweat, we glisten) but I digress…
Anyone that knows my foodie habits, knows that I am a big believer and supporter of the sustainability initiative. I support local growers and am always game for trying restaurants that do the same. In fact, I’ll share some of my favorite Atlanta restaurants that do just that! That’s a post for later. I have to keep you all wanting to come back for more!
What are some of my favorite Atlanta farmers markets you ask? I’ll tell you… here are just a few. In this post, I am sharing my favorite smaller/local markets. I will post again about some of the larger stores that I like to visit for supplies to include places like Dekalb Farmers Market, Penzeys etc. Please feel free to share in the comments section if there are any markets in your neighborhoods that I’ve missed that you like to visit.
