it’s farmers market time.

In honor of the 2012 Peachtree Road Farmers Market‘s opening day this Saturday (marking their 6th season!), I wanted to post a wonderful resource provided by Georgia Organics. This annual harvest calendar is the perfect guide for what to expect at your local Georgia farmers markets and will help you plan your seasonal, locally sourced meals.

For those who don’t have time to print, post and use this thing right away, here is a quick list of the April goodies:

  • Arugula
  • Asparagus
  • Beets
  • Bok Choy
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Collards
  • Green Garlic
  • Kale & other greens
  • Lettuce
  • Mushrooms
  • English Peas
  • Radish
  • Seedlings
  • Spinach
  • Strawberries
  • Turnips

Look out for a post with some of the fun vendors and their offerings from this week’s Peachtree Road Farmers Market. There is going to be a chef demo by Chris Hall of Local Three as well as live music by Hannah Onley. Also, one of my phavorite local ladies, Angie Tillman of Phickles Pickles, will be there too! Hooray!

Let me know what you think! I would love to hear about your local farmers markets and the awesome seasonal/hand crafted/delicious goodies you come across. Don’t forget to bring your reusable bags!
