The 2016 Acworth Farmers Market features local produce and products, including fresh fruits and vegetables, plants, jams and jellies, fresh baked goods, cakes, cookies, pies and more. Market manager Tina Rhoades is proud of the diversity of the market, which “offers up a small town experience each and every week.” She estimates between 250500 attend weekly, with many of them regulars who enjoy shopping the entire market rather than stopping at one or two vendors. Another unique aspect of the Acworth market is that vendors don’t have to pay a fee to claim a spot. The focus is on fresh produce and locally produced food items, with a few craft displays among the 2535 weekly vendors.
The market is open 8 a.m.noon Fridays through Oct. 28 in the Main Street parking lot of Acworth First Baptist Church, 4583 Church St. For information, call 7709171234.
