With so many fruits and vegetables in season during the summer months, now is one of the best times to shop local for your produce. Not sure where to start? I’ve compiled a list of the best markets in and around Atlanta this season. Most of these markets run through the fall (some are even year round), but dates and times are always subject to change, so please review a market’s official site before heading out to shop.
