Georgia's locally grown foods

Fresh, locally grown tomatoes

Organic and naturally grown foods are sold at farmers markets in Georgia.

Georgia is home to many farms, organic and vegan restaurants and farmers markets.  Whether you are an avid or occasional healthy food consumer, you have many choices when searching for organic and naturally grown produce and dairy products.

More and more people are becoming aware of healthier food choices.  Many prefer to purchase fresh produce from local farmers.  Not all farms have an on-farm market to sell their products.  Farmers Markets give consumers the opportunity to buy produce and other farm items at one location from several different farmers.

The Local Farmstand is a quaint local farmers market in Midtown Atlanta.  It is located in the upscale urban complex the Westside Urban Market.  One of the farm owners, Ms. Winfrey, operates the market.  She is very knowledgeable about the  produce being sold and the farmers who contribute to the market.  Among the items displayed are torpedo onions, green tomatoes, bunched garlic, potatoes, string beans, greens, dairy products, honey from the pollination of several plants such as cotton and strawberries, and other food items.

The Local Foodstand is situated in a small corner shop with large windows.  The produce are fresh with beautiful color, some with unusual shapes and neatly displayed and labeled.  The market has an outdoor farm stand feel.  As the room begins to fill with health food enthusiast and the curious, the atmosphere remains cozy and comfortable.

There are many farmers market locations in Atlanta and Georgia counties which operate normally from Wednesday through Saturday.  Check your local Whole Foods Market for a Georgia Organics Local Food Guide.

    I really enjoyed this article. Very informative. I live in Delaware with many farms to choose from but I will be asking more questions about the way they grow their veggies. I will be adding you to my twitter, facebook & iseecolor pages.
