(Cumming, GA) A tradition that started in 1978 will enter a new period this fall. At the end of September, the Cumming Farmers Market moves to the Cumming City Center and will stay open year.

“We’re so excited to be partnering with the City of Cumming to move the market to our new home at the City Center where we can now provide a year-round market to our community,” said Randy Gazaway, the market manager, in a press release.

Once it moves, the market will operate on the following schedule:

  • October to May – 8 a.m.-11 a.m. Saturdays only
  • June to September – 6:30 a.m.-11 a.m. Saturdays and Wednesdays

“Our Farmers Market has been a part of the Cumming and Forsyth County community for more than four decades and we have a very loyal customer base, but our vendors are happy to hopefully reach even more people through the new year-round market at the City Center,” Gazaway said. “The Cumming Farmers Market is here to support our entire community with the freshest and tastiest products available, so we couldn’t be happier to now be able to provide those high-quality items all year long.”
