I really love going to the farmers markets on Saturday mornings. This week I traveled to the Sandy Springs Farmers Market. Awesome, just wonderful to see all the family's getting out to see the vendors and their wares. The Market is opened on Saturday mornings from 8:30-12:00 May 1 through December. They have a lot to offer and I recommend you stopping by one of these markets. I actually meet a lot of people I know and enjoy making friends with the vendors. Don't be afraid to talk to the vendors and ask them questions.
There is a annual harvest calender to determine when products are available. This calender is also available on the markets website Annual Harvest Calender.
Here are some of the vendors at the market.

I walked up to this vendor and they asked me if I had a double stack convection
the market was so busy. I told them no problem they could use the ovens. Then I realized they were not cookies but dog cookies. At the Green Dog Cookie Company
all the cookies are homemade with certified organic ingredients free from preservatives, chemicals, sugars, salts and fillers.
