From Summer to Fall, Acworth's Farmers Market and Other Downtown Attractions Change with the Seasons

With the harvest season winding down during the early days of fall, there's still time to visit Acworth's Farmer's Market for fresh farm goods, artisan baking and much more.

Hundreds of visitors have journeyed to Acworth's Logan Park each week since April to get the freshest farm products and check out other wares from local entrepreneurs. But time is running out on the farm season and the market, as Oct. 28 is the last scheduled day of the season for this local favorite.

Like the seasons, offerings change at the market each week, depending on the farm harvest cycle, the vendors who participate, and the mix of goods they bring along with them.

We made a short video about the market during a visit earlier in the year, meeting some of the local vendors and making purchases that brought us back on multiple occasions.

As summer turns to fall, we returned again to check out some of the newest seasonal offerings. And when the calendar finally flips to October, we'll be able to combine two of our favorite Acworth outdoor activities: the farmers market and visiting the city's scarecrow display along historic Main Street. Each year, we look forward to the creative, frightful and delightful exhibits sponsored by local merchants. It's a must-visit fall stop for our family and grandkids.

I left the business world behind, living in Northwest Georgia and writing about avocations including outdoor excursions, family-friendly travel, road trips, exploration ideas for active seniors and some of my community passions. I've traveled to 47 states and nearly as many countries, and I'm still counting up. I'm a traveler, hiker, cyclist, blogger, marketing consultant, community volunteer and local high school band nerd who previously has lived in Florida, Ohio, Indiana and Mississippi. I'm a South Louisiana-born French Cajun whose great-grandparents were sugar farmers, bar owners and reputed bootleggers. My upbringing in food-rich Louisiana and my restaurant industry career affirmed my status as an over-qualified eater. That also inspired the name of my blog, OurTravelCafe.com. There, I offer up a complete menu of our my own experiences, explorations and adventures, organized by geography and always sprinkled with some spicy, tasty tidbits and food notes.
