Meet our farmers and artisans

A small, intimate farmers market where you can get to know the producers of the food. All produce is grown by the farmers who are at the market.

153 Boutique – Lake Spivey, GA website

153 Boutique handcrafts organic skincare products and specializes in organic handcrafted soaps. Each batch of soap is made with our own sodium hydroxide solution with which we combine organic oils to produce soap. This is known as the saponification process. It is during this process that all the sodium hydroxide is removed by the oils. We add essential oils to some of our soaps for their keynote properties such as healing or protecting skin or to help reduce anxiety and stress. We do not use any animal or nut by-products, such as goats milk or almond oil in our soaps. It is our desire to provide a hypo-allergenic and vegan soap. While we do not test our products on animals, a few of our clients use our soaps on their pets. We are a family business and serious about being healthy. Every bar of soap is handcrafted in Lake Spivey, Georgia. Our soaps are created from scratch using our tested and tried recipes.

153 Boutique is at Morningside Farmers Market every other week.

A Good Gut Feeling – Marietta, GA

My name is Trevor Miller. I am the owner of A Good Gut Feeling. Our company specializes in handcrafted artisan foods.

I was extremely sick for many years of my life. A Good Gut Feeling was born out of necessity. Nourishing foods saved my life and became my life’s passion. 

We wholeheartedly believe that Hippocrates was right when he said: “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food”. This quote sums up everything that guides our products. Simply said, health begins with the food that we eat. 

We only use the highest quality and freshest ingredients available;

We promise that all of our products are Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Preservative free, Paleo, Keto Friendly, and Sugar-free always. 

Healthy food is our passion. We cook all of our products in 100% stainless steel pots and never aluminum. We also only cook with reverse osmosis or spring water, and never tap water. We are committed to providing the healthiest food cooked in the most responsible ways. 

Our products are most flavorful at room temperature!

Bamboo Juice-Palmetto, Georgia website

Bamboo is a cold-pressed juice company that utilizes organic ingredients and the highest quality products on the market to maximize the nutritional value of each juice. Ingredients and combinations used for each drink are carefully crafted so that each juice, almond milk, and elixir shot is more than a drink, but a health tonic.

The idea for an organic, cold-pressed juice shop was the manifestation of Bamboo’s CEO, Kelley Sibley’s, 15 years studying the diets and cultures of people across six continents. Through her experiences and studies, she learned there are a few basic principles that enable people to maximize their health and longevity that include a plant-based diet. Bamboo was born to bring her community dietary options that mimic those of the world’s healthiest people through fresh, delicious health tonics and elixirs.

Café Campesino – Americus, Georgia website

Café Campesino is an organic coffee roastery based in Americus, Georgia, that is fully committed to fair, direct and transparent trade with coffee farmers.   It was founded in 1998 after Americus-native Bill Harris traveled to Guatemala on a Habitat for Humanity trip where he saw the need for a fair approach to the coffee trade.  Shortly after Bill started Café Campesino, he launched the country’s only fair trade green coffee purchasing and importing cooperative called Cooperative Coffees.   As a member of Cooperative Coffees, Café Campesino is able to partner directly with small-scale coffee farmers around the world and roast some of the highest quality, specialty grade coffee available. Those coffees are sold to retail and wholesale accounts across the country, inside Café Campesino’s Sweet Auburn Curb Market coffee shop, and at the Morningside Market.

Cafe’ Campesino is at Morningside Farmers Market every other week.

Crystal Organic Farm – Newborn, Georgia website

Nicolas Donck was born in Belgium and moved here to the land he now farms in Georgia when he was 16. He graduated from UGA with a degree in international business but quickly realized that his heart belonged to farming. Nicolas started Crystal Organic Farm sixteen years ago, the same year that he and several other organic farmers started the Morningside market. The loyal support of Saturday morning market buyers has enabled Crystal Organic Farm to grow steadily over the years. We have been coming to the Market year round now for several years and are so thankful for its existence.
Nicolas’ teenage boys and his mother often join him at the Market or at the farm. Nicolas loves that it is a family operation and that he can now share what he has learned with a new generation of farmers.

Elm Street Gardens – Sparta, GA website

Elm Street Gardens is an intensive one-acre certified organic vegetable garden, spread out among four acres, located behind a historic house in Sparta, Georgia and along Elm Street. The gardens were begun in 2004 as an experiment to see if the Currey family could grow the vegetables they wanted to eat throughout the year. A diverse array of vegetable and fruit crops are now grown year-round using a no-till method in the outdoor beds and in the hoop houses. In addition to the six hoop houses, there is a heated seed house for starting transplants.
Robert & Suzy Currey are the owners and founders of Elm Street Gardens. Over the years they have transformed an overgrown backyard into a beautiful and highly productive one-acre working vegetable farm. They are an essential part of the planning, growing, and selling of Elm Street’s produce.

“We never use any synthetic fertilizers or chemicals on our property and abide by organic standards in growing our produce. Every year the soil in our garden improves with our constant mulching, and we can not only see the difference but taste it as well. The health of our soil directly impacts both the health of our plants and of those who consume them. Quality and taste are our results.”

Grateful Pastures – Mansfield, GA

Grateful Pastures is a small farm on 25 acres in Mansfield, Ga. We produce the tastiest pasture-raised chicken and eggs around.  Founded in March 2015 by Shaun and Sabrina Terry, Grateful Pastures focuses on humane and ecologically responsible farming practices.  We move our mobile shelters every morning so that our chickens always have fresh pasture to feed on. We never use antibiotics or any other unnatural supplements.  In addition to the constant supply of fresh grass and bugs, our chickens eat Certified Organic feed. We believe that someday these farming practices will be the norm.  It just takes the consumer’s dedication to purchase only the most responsibly produced foods!  We love to answer questions about the farm and our dreams for the future of agriculture, so stop by our booth soon! Certified Naturally Grown.

Riverview Farms- Ranger, GA website

Ranger, Georgia might be the farm’s mailing address, but it’s the banks of the Coosawattee River north of Ranger that Riverview Farms calls home. Nestled into the crook of an elbow of the river, the 500-acre farm has been growing certified organic produce since 2000. The farm’s certified organic pastures are where you’ll find the cows and pigs that Riverview gently raises — producing the lauded grass-fed beef and Berkshire pork you’ll find on the menus of the best restaurants in Atlanta. As a matter of principle, the second generation family farm operates as a closed-loop, single-source farm that exceeds certified organic requirements: all of Riverview’s animals are born and raised on the farmstead, and everything they eat is certified organic and grown on the farm. Why? Because it’s good for the land, good for the animals, and good for people — and because pigs love melons and tomatoes, too!

Rodgers Greens and Roots

Rodgers Greens & Roots Farm is a certified organic farm, located 30 minutes southwest of Atlanta in Douglasville, Georgia, on 64 acres of historic farmland along the Chattahoochee River. Currently, 12 acres of flat clay-loam soil is under cultivation using organic practices, 10 acres in vegetables, and 2 acres in perennial fruit orchards. The farm’s Owner and Operator, Ashley Rodgers, has been farming in Georgia organically for her entire career, now on her 9th season. Ashley has sold at the nearby Peachtree Road Farmers Market for the last 6 years and we are thrilled to now be apart of the Morningside Farmers Market. Rodgers Greens and Roots farm is not only a testament to Ashley’s skill at growing greens and roots, but is also named after Ashley’s father, Robert George Rodgers, RGR, who passed away in 2011. We grow over 120 different types of vegetables and with the help of an amazing farm crew bring everything to market each Saturday. The farm’s growing style is medium-scale, mechanized production: tractors, tools and machinery, however, we are not a big AG farm. Sustainable farming practices are the backbone of Rodgers Greens and Roots: compost, cover crop, and crop rotation. At Rodgers Greens and Roots, our goal is to build community awareness of local, seasonal, organic food through providing quality ethical certified organic produce to our local community. We look forward to getting to know many new customers this season and joining the Morningside market family!

Talat Market

Parnass Savang was born in San Diego to hard-working immigrant parents from Thailand and Laos. His family moved to Duluth, Georgia, when he was 2. At age 5, Parnass was already working in the family business: a Thai restaurant that catered to American tastes.

He cooked at Valdosta University school cafeteria throughout college and went on to study at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. After graduation, he returned to Atlanta and began to cook in some of the city’s best restaurants, including Empire State South, Kimball House, and Staplehouse. With each restaurant, Parnass deepened his ties with North Georgia farmers and a vision for his own project soon crystallized: a heartfelt, no-compromise Thai food using ingredients from local farmers and purveyors.

In 2017, Savang debuted Talat Market. a pop-up in Atlanta’s Candler Park neighborhood. Only open Friday through Sunday, Talat Market was an immediate success with Atlantans forming lines around the block to experience his balanced curries, nuanced crudos, and funky fresh salads. He earned Eater’s 2017 “Chef of the Year,” James Beard Rising Star Chef nomination, Atlanta Magazine’s The Chef to Watch 2018, Bon Appetit’s Best 50 Restaurants 2018, StarChefs Rising Stars Award.

Rod spent his childhood around home-cooked southern food in Tallahassee, Florida, and he has worked over a decade in professional kitchens. In Atlanta, he has worked as the Executive Sous Chef and interim Head Chef at Wrecking Bar Brewpub, the Executive Chef at Ration and Dram, and Tournament at Kimball House. Through his work all around Atlanta, Rod prioritizes using seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients in his food, and he’s developed relationships with local farmers and producers.

Wildcraft Flowers

Wildcraft Flowers is a certified naturally grown flower farm owned and managed by husband and wife Carroll and Richard Candler in Sharpsburg, Georgia. We grow a wide variety of flowers from everyone’s favorites to unusual, uncommonly available varieties. The farm began in 2015 and is continuing to grow and serve an expanding area of florists, markets, and shops. We are conscious of our environmental impact and strive to make ethical choices about the way we farm, including using solar panels to provide our electricity. We pride ourselves on being a local source for ethically responsible and organically grown blooms for this part of the state.

Woodsong Farm

We take great pleasure in producing quality pasture-raised products.  We feed our birds soy-free organic feed and rotate them via managed intensive grazing onto fresh pasture. Our cows are happy girls, spending the day munching on grass or hay and giving us rich creamy raw milk. We work with the seasons, not against them.  The animals are free to live the way, we believe, they were designed to live. With diverse forage pastures, clean air, exercise, play, and quality attention.  We strive to steward our land and animals with the utmost care.  We believe that agriculture, when done right, can be a powerful tool for the restoration of community and land, and a force for social justice. Certified Naturally Grown.

Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate – Atlanta, GA website

Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate is proud to offer Atlanta “bean-to-bar” dark chocolate. We import cacao (cocoa) beans from 6 different countries–each chosen for the different flavor profiles of the beans. We roast the beans, then crack, winnow and grind them for up to 72 hours, adding only organic cane sugar. We then temper and hand-wrap the dark chocolate bars all at our Krog Street Market micro-factory. Because we only make 2 ingredient chocolate (cacao and sugar), our bars are gluten, soy, and dairy-free. In addition to our line of single-origin dark chocolate bars, we also offer a rotating selection of flavored bars as well because who doesn’t like chocolate with nuts, or fruit or mint or coffee??

Xocolatl (chock-oh-LAH-tul) is owned by a local husband and wife team and is the result of our search for a calling that involves using our hands, connecting to real food, supporting local communities (both our own and other people’s) and a fortuitous trip to Costa Rica.

Take a guided tour of the Xocolatl chocolate-making facility in this short video, and see how chocolate is made.

Xocolatl is at Morningside Farmers Market every other week.
