Freedom Farmers Market at The Carter Center was formed by a small group of local farmers who wanted to bring their Good Food to the surrounding neighborhoods. All of the vendors will have a dedication to sustainable production practices and represent the best of local food production.
The Freedom Farmers Market name is derived from the place (Freedom Park) and a sense of independence (the market is managed by the farmers themselves).
Access to Good Food is a fundamental desire for the market. Neighbors can reach the market by walking or biking the Freedom Park Trail, Marta Bus or by car.
The diversity of the communities surrounding The Carter Center are key for the Market: this is a place for friends and neighbors to gather together every week.
Freedom Farmers Market at The Carter Center will offer a wide range of local products including fresh produce, bakery goods, cheese and dairy, farm fresh eggs, handmade preserves and honey, prepared meals, fresh coffee and much more!
Freedom Farmers’ Market utilizes a token system in order to accept Debit, Credit and SNAP/EBT cards. Even though all farmers take cash, this convenient token system allows our neighbors who use SNAP/EBT (formerly known as food stamps) to shop for healthy food using federal benefits and our shoppers who run out of cash to pick up those last few items. It’s a win-win for farmers and shoppers!
The Freedom Farmers' Market is teaming up with Wholesome Wave Georgia to double SNAP dollars. SNAP users should scan their EBT cards at the Market Tent and ask for the amount they'd like deducted from their accounts. The Market will present them with tokens, then double the number. The tokens can be used at any booth in the Market. Thanks Wholesome Wave!
