Certified organic produce. Fresh. Local.
Morningside Farmers Market is the first and only farmers market in Atlanta that requires all produce to be certified organic. Unwavering in our commitment to you, since 1995.
Fresh, local, certified organic vegetables, fruits and mushrooms. Plus locally produced meats raised on 100% organic GMO-free feed, bread and foods. Beautiful organic flowers in season. And artisan crafts.
The produce is grown by the farmers who are at the market. It's a very small, intimate farmers market where you can get to know the producers of the food.

Our neighborhood farmers market is open year round, every Saturday from 7:30 AM to 11:30 AM (winter hours 8:00 AM to 11:30 AM January 1 – March 31).

This week's 100% organic soups are Split Pea, Hearty Vegetable & Potato, from Bella's Best Organic Gourmet. You'll find new "Hemp Energy + Protein Bites" from Pure Bliss Organics. Organic tomato plants for your garden from Crystal Organic Farm. And organic spring flowers from the garden from Elm Street Gardens....
... and as always, a wide variety of certified organic vegetables, fruits and mushrooms; plus meats from animals raised by our local farmers, and fed only organic non-GMO food; and delicious prepared foods including artisan breads, vegan cheeses, pastries, small batch dark chocolate and more.
Asparagus Selection and Preparation Tip: Buying freshly harvested asparagus is of paramount importance. It can lose much of its flavor and nutritional value within just a few days. According to Jo Robinson, author of "Eating on the Wild Side", fresh-picked asparagus has four times more natural sugar than asparagus that has been stored for just one day, which gives it a very appealing flavor without boosting blood sugar. After just three days of storage, asparagus becomes twice as acidic and rapidly loses its phytonutrients. I recommend buying fresh-picked asparagus from the farmers market and eating it the day you buy it, for best taste and nutritional value. - David
