Amidst Atlanta's bountiful harvest of community farmers' markets, one of our favorite everyday staples is the Sweet Auburn Curb Market. Rich in history, charm and flavor, Sweet Auburn was ranked by USA Today as the 16th Best food market around the world. The self-sustaining entity is comprised of 24 independently-owned businesses including eateries, retail shops and fresh produce. Atlanta residents and visitors can now enjoy restaurants such as Murphy’s, Grindhouse Killer Burgers, Bell Street Burritos, Sweet Auburn Barbeque and Arepa Mia.

It's officially farmers market season! Haley and I are so excited to bring you a two-part farm-to-table post this week. As you may have read in our ABOUT section, I began my public relations career at a small non-profit that helped cultivate an organic, producer-only farmers market in Macon, Georgia. The shoot below was a fabulous collaboration between several vendors with the intention of encouraging folks to shop locally and eat seasonally. The Mulberry Market, located in downtown Macon, has grown tremendously since its inception in 2011. The market even offers a 2 to 1 dollar matching program for EBT benefits through Wholesome Wave Georgia. We invite you to check out the market which runs every Wednesday from 3:30-6 PM at Tattnall Square Park! (Farm info available by clicking photos // all photos courtesy of Haley Sheffield Photography).
