Farmers Market Highlights
Through a weekly gathering of farms, restaurants, small-scale artisanal businesses, and customers from the Emory community, the Emory Farmers Market fosters education and personal relationships through food. Consumers have the opportunity to engage with small-scale producers and support the local economy, contributing to a more robust and sustainable food system.
Since 2008, the Emory Farmers Market has been a lively campus community space for local farms and businesses that offer a wide selection of fresh produce, hand-crafted goods, and diverse beverage and lunch options for students, faculty, and staff.
Farmers Market Benefits
The market serves as a gathering place for the Emory community and offers an opportunity to connect Emory students, faculty, and staff with local Georgia farmers and makers. Cooking demonstrations, contests, musical performances and other activities make the Emory Farmers Market a highlight of campus life.
The Market supports smaller Georgia farmers and small business owners, while providing the ideal space for consumers to establish a relationship with the people who grow their food.
