Freedom Farmers Market at the Carter Center

Freedom Farmers Market at the Carter Center was formed in 2014 by a small group of Georgia farmers with one vision: bring local, sustainably grown food to intown Atlanta neighborhoods. The market, now open year-round, now offers 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 more. The market’s name, Freedom, has a double meaning. It’s located steps away from the Freedom Park Trail. It also represents a sense of independence—for shoppers, and also for farmers, who manage the market through an independent board. Accessibility is an important goal of Freedom Farmers Market. Neighbors can reach the market by walking or biking, riding MARTA, or driving. A grant from Wholesome Wave Georgia allows us to double all SNAP dollars our shoppers spend. The diverse communities surrounding the Carter Center make Freedom Farmers Market a place to gather with familiar friends and meet new ones. Find us at the Carter Center every Saturday from 9 a.m. ‘til 1 p.m. We can’t wait to see you on market day!
