(ATLANTA, Ga.) Celebrate Earth Day with an organic burger and good weather in the heart of Atlanta!
A new Farm Burger location is opening on Thursday and will host a new farmers market in the neighborhood as well.
Located in the Virginia-Highland area, the seventh Farm Burger location is taking over the former Yeah! Burger building and will host the neighborhood farmers market every Thursday afternoon in the parking lot.
Owners George Frangos and Jason Mann founded the organic burger chain in 2010 and prides their establishment on serving cooked-to-order, 100% grass-fed burgers. Other menu options include burgers made from quinoa, chicken and pork-based patties as well as local beers, milkshakes and a selection of wine.
When talking about the new location, Frangos says he was drawn to the unique history of North Highland Avenue and the outdoor seating on the patio. The new location also features a mural of Farm Burger’s mascot, Sparkles the cow.
In a press release, Frangos spoke about the significance of opening on Earth Day saying, “Getting to open our doors on Earth Day is really special since our ethos is to serve people and the planet better. We’re thrilled to partner with the Virginia Highland Community Farmers Market.”
“Cultivating community is what matters most to us and having the opportunity to link arms with like-minded organizations is such a special aspect to this new location in the Virginia Highland neighborhood,” he continued.
The newest collaboration between Farm Burger and the Virginia Highland Community Farmers Market will take place each Thursday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the restaurants parking lot. In addition to standard cash and credit/debit payments, SNAP benefits will be accepted at the market.
Currently, Farm Burger has seven locations throughout the metro-Atlanta area, two locations in Tennessee and North Carolina and one location in Alabama.
