The Cumming Farmers Market’s mission is to bring local farmers, cooks, and artisans together in order to provide fresh produce and goods to the community in an informal, unhurried setting.
Cumming Farmer’s Market’s most intriguing asset is its untainted simplicity. The vendors have a deep, almost parental pride in their homegrown and homemade products. The loyal customers know this and that is why they consistently return on Wednesdays or Saturdays.
On those days, before the sun rises, the pick-up trucks, SUV’s and cars loaded with freshly picked produce, tasty baked goods, woodworking, art and flowers will begin pulling into the parking lot across from the fair grounds.
The rhythm of the morning picks up pace as they each choose a parking place and begin to unload their folding tables, coolers, and boxes. Stunning displays are made of tomatoes, meats, okra, beans, peas, corn, eggs, flowers, artwork, nuts, soaps, peppers, squash, zucchini, fresh baked goods, watermelon, potatoes, honey, canned jams and jellies and MORE. The parking lots’ line of hardwood trees provide the perfect shade from the now rising sun and within only minutes, the first customers arrive.
If you are a customer, grab a go-cup of coffee, drive on over, and plan to stay a while.
If you are interested in becoming a vendor at the Cumming Farmers Market then please come to an informational meeting on Friday, May 3 at 9:00am. The meeting will be held in the Cumming Fairgrounds Parking lot across the street from the Fairgrounds on Castleberry Road.
