Did you miss the fresh food you could purchase just down the street at the farmers market, every Thursday of the week? We did! ATL's freshest veggies, fruits, eggs, breads, cheeses and tasty treats, can all be yours at the farmer's market. Starting Thursday, April 13th, East Village Farmer's Market is open for business in it's 12th season!
You may not know that the *East Atlanta Village Farmers Market was the first market in the state of Georgia to accept SNAP *(aka "food stamp" dollars). We were also one of the first markets to pilot the double SNAP program with Wholesome Wave Georgia.
We are hosting a small ceremony to celebrate our 10th season of accepting SNAP at the EAV Farmers Market - celebrating a decade of making local fresh food more accessible for all!
