MoRhythm enjoy performing and that joy is palpable. “Music is our passion and we love bringing it to all who will listen!” Not your typical three piece, the band consists of Matt Donald on guitar, bass and vocals, Melissa Gouinlock on percussion, guitar and vocals, and Brian Walkabout on harmonica, percussion and vocals. They bring an eclectic mix of genres and styles of original pieces along with carefully chosen cover songs.

Vendor News

  • Honey Creek Mushrooms returns! Located in Conyers, GA, Honey Creek is a certified naturally grown provider of gourmet oyster mushrooms. Matthew also has other mushroom products available, which would be great additions to your holiday gift-giving.
  • Thompson Farms returns, with broccoli, cabbage, and a variety of greens.
  • Nona Rosa’s Kitchen is adding fall flavors, including molasses crinkles, orange poppyseed cookies, and chocolate dipped pizzelles

Keep all our farmers in your thoughts during this early deep freeze! And come out to the market to show them your appreciation for all the hard work they do to put fresh, naturally grown produce on our tables.

Opportunities for Giving

Good Neighbor Gift Shop

Bring toys and gifts for kids to the TFM November 14, November 21, and December 5.

Our goal is to preserve the pride and dignity of the families we serve in our community. We accomplish this by collecting new toy donations and selling them at extremely affordable prices, instead of giving them away, believing that our families would prefer to provide for themselves instead of receiving a handout. 

We need you to make that happen. You can help by donating funds, buying toys, and volunteering. A volunteer sign up link, complete shopping guide, and Amazon wish list can be found at our website. Desired items include: blocks, cares, action figures, ethnically diverse dolls, dress up clothes, sports equipment, books, paints, board games, bikes, & gift cards. 

Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes

Please turn in your shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child at the Thursday Farmer’s Market this week, or at the office of First Baptist Church of Tucker by 5:00 on Monday, November 18th.  Thank you for your participation.

Aid for the Philippines

Please bring children’s clothing (any age/size) to the Tucker Farmers Market this week, Nov. 14. Colin will work with Kalayag to get your donations distributed to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Kalayag is an organization run by Pio and his wife Sonia. Pio is the cousin of Colin Gardner, who sells you peaches, pecans, and boiled peanuts throughout the year at the TFM. With the recent disaster, Colin says they are “very busy and desperately need your kindness and generosity.” Bring your donations to Colin’s booth (boiled peanuts in the courtyard).
