Admission is free, and there is plenty of parking around the city of Alpharetta, Georgia.

Come early as the event is only open from 8:30 am until noon, and when a vendor sells out, that's it until next week. But the good news is, the market is being extended later into the fall. I don't know about you, but city markets and fall festivals just go together.

This year the market will have fewer vendors, but each vendor will be able to display and sell a more extensive variety of products. As the Farmers Market manager, Taylor Yurgalevicz, posted on the market's Facebook page, "Our focus this year is more on the farmers who will provide produce, meat, plants, and flowers. Customers will see many of their favorites back, but we're limiting the number of vendors in each category so we can provide a broader range of goods. This also allows us to offer more locally grown and sourced farm-fresh items and homemade food."

If you are wondering about safety protocols as the pandemic continues to wind down, have no fear. Until further notice, they won't have cooking demos, live music, or other communal events. This is to discourage large crowds from gathering in close proximity. This will also encourage customers to "shop with a purpose" and support these local vendors who have been suffering for over a year.

No food will be eaten on-site, and vendors are not allowed to hand out samples. All vendors will be masked and gloved at all times. Social distancing and masks on all patrons are strongly encouraged.
