The Mableton Farmers Market at the Mable House Complex will forego opening in 2020, but plans to be back in 2021 better than ever. Despite record rainfall to date, some of our produce growers are having unsatisfactory results. Added to that, the safe distancing and sanitation protocols brought on by the pandemic response and uncertainty of the future has led us to opt for best possible protection of our customers and vendor team.
The Market is known for a wide variety of tasty, fresh, grown good-for-you produce from by local small farmers, as well as fresh-baked items, honey, eggs and jewelry. Recipe demonstrations, showing visitors quick and easy ways to prepare “summertime” dishes using fresh produce the Market has to offer are also fun and tasty.
If you or anyone you know are interested in being a market vendor in 2021, contact the Market Manager.
The Market is a U.S. Department of Agriculture-approved Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps) retailer. Our partnership with non-profit Wholesome Wave Georgia (WWG) enables SNAP customers to double their eligible food item EBT card purchases of up to $100 per Market day ($50 SNAP plus $50, thanks to WWG). Come to the Market to find out about additional bonus SNAP token opportunities.
If you need assistance with SNAP enrollment or problems with your existing account, reach out to WWG at https://www.wholesomewavegeorgia.org/snap-enrollment, or call Sarah Moore at 678-631-7101.
