The Main Street Farmer’s Market in Douglasville will be continuing this summer on Thursdays from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Old Courthouse Lawn. The market will run from May 24 through Aug. 30. The market will feature fresh produce, organic meats and cheeses, handcrafted items, baked goods, and specialty items.
The City is encouraging local growers, artisans, and crafts people to participate. Douglasville’s Main Street Manager, Stephanie Aylworth stated, “We had such a positive response to the Farmer’s Market this spring we decided to extend it into the summer. Because of logistics we will be moving the market just one block over to the Old Courthouse Lawn.”
A portion of the vendor fees will go towards the Old Courthouse Museum. The museum will be open during the market and has recently updated some of is exhibits. The Market Coordinator is now taking vendor applications for the upcoming Summer Farmer’s Market.
