The Marietta Square Farmers Market is in full swing and so popular this year that Marietta City Council July 8 approved extending it through December 26 along North Park Square. The market takes place every Saturday – rain or shine – from 9 a.m.-noon.
“The market features products that are grown and produced in Georgia, including fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs, plants, flowers, honey, breads, garlic, cheese and other such items,” market director Johnny Fulmer said.
To allow vendors and organizers enough time to get set up for the market, North Park Square and a portion of Mill Street will be closed from 7 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday mornings through December 26 for the market.
