Farmer's Market & Pick-Your-Own Guide for North Georgia

Buy local!

By Lynne Westbrook, Publisher Macaroni Kid Blue Ridge April 5, 2021

It's almost farmers market and pick-your-own time in North Georgia!

We love supporting our local farmers and buying locally-grown produce and goods. Plus, it's fun for the whole family to visit a pick-your-own (PYO) farm or a farmers market in North Georgia.

Here are four things to note before heading out to farmers markets or PYO farms in North Georgia:

  • Pick-your-own farms can sometimes change hours on short notice dependent on weather, produce availability, and other factors. It's best to call ahead to make sure pick-your-own is available that day. Prices can also change from day to day.
  • Bring your own containers or bags to avoid any extra charges! 
  • Bring cash as some farmer market stands and pick-your-own farms don't take credit cards.
  • Some farmer markets and pick-your-own farms in our area might have rules or requests in place due to COVID. Please check their websites or social media sites before heading out!

Here are the details on our local farmers markets and pick-your-own farms:
