Dawson County opens Amicalola Regional Farmers’ Market—the place to go on Friday afternoon

Dawson County’s Amicalola Regional Farmers Market opened Friday, April 28 in the Tractor Supply parking lot, located at 6921 Highway 53 East. The new market, launched by the Amicalola Regional Agriculture Committee, will be open Friday afternoons from 3:30 until 7 p.m.

Making the market as locally grown as possible was a top priority for the committee. Vendors who participate in the market must show their produce is grown in Dawson County or a county that touches Dawson (Forsyth, Hall, Gilmer, Fannin, Lumpkin).

Local artisans offering handmade arts, crafts, soaps, honey and baked goods will also be at the market. Nonprofit organizations are also invited to sell baked goods. The committee has waived all vendor fees for the first year in order to encourage a wide variety of producers to participate.

Market Manager and Dawson County Extension Agent Clark MacAllister said he is looking forward to Dawson County having more options for fresh produce. “We are excited to expand the opportunities in Dawson County for customers and vendors at our new farmers’ market location,” MacAllister said. “The Amicalola Regional Farmers Market will help connect local farmers with those seeking fresh food and farm-related products.”
