The Morningside Farmers Market has its roots in a farmer cooperative that started with Cynthia Hizer's herb garden at the old Atlanta Waterworks in the late 1980's. In 1995 the Georgia Grown farmers were asked to bring extra produce for a market that would share with the public the same abundance they were offering the chefs. By the second week it was so successful the farmers wanted to start doing the selling themselves. Now, fifteen years later, some of the same farmers and partners are still with us, proud to be serving the community with fresh, local and organic produce.
The market is open Saturdays year round from 7:30am - 11:30am in the Summer and from 8:30am - 11:30am in the Winter. Chef demonstrations start in mid-April and end in November.
