Spring Is On Its Way!

And so is the Greenway Farmers Market, 

Saturday, March 16th from 9 am til noon

Spring is fast approaching in middle Georgia, and all of your favorite farmers and producers are gearing up for an exciting market season!  The Greenway Farmers Market will be this Saturday, March 16th from 9 am til noon.  Your favorite middle Georgia farmers and producers will be there offering the best locally- and sustainably-grown food in town, including: great sustainably-grown produce and mushrooms; pasture-raised beef, pork, lamb, goat, chicken, and eggs; hormone-free and antibiotic-free dairy products; hearth-baked artisan breads and other baked goods; and handcrafted jams, jellies, and preserves.

But there's more. . . starting in April, you can look forward to the Greenway Farmers Market EVERY WEEK at the Oconee River Greenway from 9 am til noon!  The first weekly market will be Saturday, April 6th from 9 am til noon.  You can expect all of our regular vendors, plus seasonal vendors and craft vendors on special occasions, every week from April through November at the Oconee River Greenway.

Why Eat Organically-Grown and Local Food?

All regular vendors at the Greenway Farmers Market produce everything they sell within 100 miles of Milledgeville.  Also, all produce is grown without synthetic chemicals and animals live on pasture and do not receive regular antibiotics or hormones in their feed.  But why should you eat organically-grown and local food?  Here's six great reasons (and lots more info) from Georgia Organics.

Interested in Volunteering at the Market?

If you are interested in learning how to become more involved, be sure to stop by the market table for more info.  We need volunteers to help run the market table, set up and take down signs on the day of the market, help with marketing, fundraising, playing music and other market day activities, and organize activities for kids.  If you love your farmers and want to give back, please stop by the market table to learn how at the market next Saturday!
