Established five years ago, downtown Atlanta’s only farmer’s market is weekly bringing local color and traffic to the Peachtree Center development. With the Green Market at the heart of the city, Urban Enterprises, which coordinates the market, must use military precision to get the vendors and consumers in and out smoothly.
If you are thinking about having a Farmer’s Market on your property keep in mind that it is not the best option for everyone. The location and demographics must be spot on, but it also requires commitment of time and money.
