Get Your Fresh Food Fix at Coweta County’s Many Markets

Fresh Is Just Around The Corner!

Agricultural Plenty

Coweta County is nestled in an agriculturally rich region of Georgia and hence home to several noteworthy farmers markets, each one with its own distinctive charms and experiences. Spend a Saturday exploring everything from local farmers markets to organic and you-pick farms and bring home a true taste of Georgia.

Kick off your weekend at Senoia’s Farmer’s Market (Saturdays, 8:30 a.m.–1 p.m.), largely considered to be the social event of the week. Here, you can order a Bloody Mary or mimosa to-go at one of the market’s two bars, and then wander the offerings. Vendors change from week to week, but expect a good selection of produce, live music, and tasty bites from local restaurants. Keep an eye out for the breakfast burrito, a local favorite.


Newnan’s town square hosts The Market Day (first Saturday of the month from April through December, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.), where you’ll find more than 50 booths featuring everything from locally grown produce and honey to pottery and handcrafted furniture. Musicians are invited to bring their instruments and join in for “Pickin’ on the Square,” a relaxed jam session for players of all skill levels.

Just down the road from Newnan’s square is the Coweta County Farmer’s Market (June to October, Wednesday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.), which features a weekly offering of whatever is in season as well as eggs, a selection of baked goods, and arts and crafts.


180-Degree Farm provides much more than fresh, organically raised produce and meats; it’s also a destination for those battling cancer. After struggling through their son’s cancer battle (he is now in remission), the Tyson family started 180-Degree Farm to provide anyone fighting cancer with access to fresh, organically raised products.

Open year-round on Tuesdays and Saturdays, from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., the farm also sells locally butchered meats, yogurt, and eggs. Visitors can stock up on fresh, healthy, nutrient-dense food; explore one of their flower gardens; or wander the nature trail. They also offer regular volunteer opportunities, and you can order products online.

Pay a visit to Curly the Bull, who shares his pasture with several beehives, at Whitley Farms. This family-owned, you-pick operation has strawberries and blueberries along with a selection of homemade jams and honey (harvested right from Curly’s pasture).

Take a class at Country Garden Farms, where they sell everything from produce to pasture-raised beef, chicken, and pork. Owners Mike and Judy Cunningham offer classes and hands-on workshops on how to grow, preserve, and cook fresh produce. Their cattle, pigs, and chickens are pasture-raised and never given antibiotics or hormones, and all produce is Certified Naturally Grown.
