The TFM is staying open Thursdays until December 13! We will be adding arts and craft vendors to the market for the holiday season, so come on out and shop local this year!

All Vendors

Produce

Freedom Farms & Fruit

At Freedom Farms, you will a large selection of antique, heirloom and boutique varieties of fruit to tempt your taste buds. We have carefully selected and planted only the best varieties of each type of fruit by season to provide you with tree-ripened succulent produce from May through New Year’s Day. Our goal is to provide you with premium fruit varieties and flavors unavailable from other farms as well as a few of your old-time favorites; all carefully grown to perfection! All fruit is individually handpicked at the peak of ripeness to offer you complex flavors unavailable in stores.

Mama J’s Hydroponic Produce

Mama J’s Produce is a hydroponic greenhouse growing local, pesticide free lettuce and herbs. Started in 2009 in Cartersville, Georgia, Mama J’s is owned and operated by a mother and son team, Carol and John Jerauld. Concerns about the safety of the food her family was eating sparked Carol’s interest in locally grown, pesticide free produce. John is challenged by the technological aspect of growing healthy food and preserving the environment in the process. By combining these interests, Carol and John have started what can truly be called a “locally grown family farm”.

Straight From the Backyard

We are a small acre farm that practices sustainable agricultural methods, located outside of Loganville, Ga. We grow a large variety of vegetables; some are heirloom while others have only been available for a few years. We believe that having fun in cooking and incorporating new varieties in our diet is key to healthy eating. We hope our vegetables allow you to explore flavors from other cultures, countries and even varieties from our own country that have nearly become extinct.
