Tucker Farmers Market 2012

Tucker Farmers Market

Starting April 5th! 

Every Thursday
April 5 to October 18
4:00pm-8:00pm
Main Street, Tucker, GA
2333 Main St., Tucker, GA 30084

The Tucker Farmers Market brings together area farmers and artisans to offer their products to the community. Our mission is three-fold: 1) to support small, local businesses and independent producers like ourselves and to encourage people to “buy local”; 2) to encourage community between Vendors and their customers; and 3) to promote the continued rejuvenation of the Main Street Tucker area.

We anticipate a diverse group of local farmers, bakers, growers, and producers from around Tucker, the Atlanta area, and the state of Georgia. The customers demographics will reflect the vibrancy of the Tucker community, with diversity in age, race, culture and socioeconomic background. We endeavor to attract both locals and visitors alike, and expect to particularly draw from neighboring Stone Mountain, Lilburn, Clarkston, Decatur, and, of course, Tucker itself. People who live and work in the area will enjoy a safe, family-friendly gathering place to find the freshest local produce and prepared foods.

    Very exciting. I’d love to see handmade soaps from Hazelbrand Farms. We usually drive to Morningside’s Saturday Organic Market to buy their soaps. I’ve enjoyed the Farm mobile & their Georgia meats, if they can come too. I’m looking forward to finding in-season produce right here in Tucker.

  2. Thanks, Lori! We are very excited, too. And thanks for the Vendor references. We will definitely look into those.

  3. Can’t wait to come out, shop, & support Tucker!

    This is really exciting!
    Unfortunately, won’t be able to ever go because of my work schedule. Any chance there will ever be a Saturday morning opening?

    1. Hi, Glen,

      For now, we are only hosting the TFM on 1st and 3rd Thursdays from 4:00-8:00. We hope that you’ll be able to make it at some point! If things go well, though, we would certainly look in to expanding our availability in future.
