The Atlanta State Farmers Market

Also commonly called the Georgia State farmer's market or the Forest Park Farmer's Market
Updated April 2016

I think you'll find this is the best guide to the vendors at the Atlanta Farmer's market. This is the huge farmer's market in Georgia - a REAL farmer's market, with acres of stalls, to which the farmers bring truckloads of produce every morning.  At 150 acres, and first opened in 1958, the Atlanta Market is considered one of the largest of its kind in the world. It has a garden center with a nursery, wholesale and retail sales, and is a major distribution point for fresh produce in the Southeast and throughout the country. The Forest Park Farmer's Market also has a restaurant, welcome center and USDA Federal-State office. 

If you are looking fo Christmas trees at the Farmer's Market, click here for the list of vendors who are selling fresh cut Christmsa trees and their phone numbers.

Their prices are good but shop around and haggle; don't buy from the first stand you see, as prices vary greatly. I can usually get apples there for great prices.  In mid October, 2012, I found several vendors with apples ranging from $14 to $28 a bushel.  The $14/bushel apples were smaller sized Gala's - perfect for applesauce. Fuji's were typically $20 to $28 per bushel.  Of course, prices change from week to week, due to weather, what's coming in, and market conditions.

You can find almost any fruit or vegetable (in season) there. Examples are tomatoes, corn, okra, avocados, beets, oranges, grapefruit, peppers, grapes, muscadines, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, etc.  There are also butchers, nurseries, and other products. To get an idea of what is GENERALLY available when, see this page.  Always call the vendor before you drive to the farmer's market, to be sure they will be open and have what you want (and at a price you want).

If you are looking for a particular show at the farmer's market, such as ceramic or birds, see this page of exhibitions at the Farmer's Market!

Be sure to tell the vendors that you found them through this website - that will encourage them to give me current information! If you have any additional information or comments, please write me! and accurate information!

If you have a stall at the farmer's market and want to be added or update your information, feel free to write me (click here) and I'll add you (no charge). 

Location: 16 Forest Pkwy, Forest Park, GA 30297.

Directions: It is right next to I-75, at the second exit south of I-285 on the south side.  The exit is labeled "Forest Park / Farmer's Market".  You can't miss it: Look for this sign 100ft up in the air -------->
And here's a map.

Phone: (404) 675-1782. (administrative offices, see the individual listings below) Email: cneilse@agr.state.ga.us (Craig Neilsen).

Open: While they are technically open 364 days a year (every day except Christmas Day), 24 hours per day, that does not mean that vendors are always there and open to sell anything in the stalls. Each vendor can set their own days and hours. On the weekends, the vendors are typically only there from early (6:00 am) until Saturday at 12 noon, so get there early! Few are open at all on Sunday. During the week, they seem to be open from 6:00 am until 5 pm. Many of the vendors are open at 5:30 am! They are effectively closed on Sunday.  The stalls area is always open; I'm giving you the times that farmers are actually there with their Produce; remember, they can set their own hours, different from the market facility itself.

Prices: It appears as though the USDA is posting typical prices for the Atlanta area. They tell you the size of the box, bag or carton, then the price range (without dollar signs. For example, for Cameo apples in a bushel carton, it says: "Cameo 72s 26.00", which means $26 per bushel carton (a bushel is about 42 lbs). I believe "72s" refers to a size of the apple.

See below for a list of vendors and their contact information so you can call and find out what they have BEFORE you drive all the way to the Forest Park.

Dealers in Buildings at the Atlanta Farmer's Market

Not all of the vendors are outside in the sheds or "stalls" . Some have their shops inside various buildings at the farmer's market. Typically, they may also sell goods that need to be kept refrigerated or frozen or more protected from the elements. On my next trip, I'll try to visit, photograph and gather more information about what they sell. If anyone has any information about these vendors (what they have to sell, prices, etc.), please email me!
