The Lake Oconee Lifestyle includes wonderful shopping opportunities to pick up fresh produce when it's in season. One of the largest and the most popular Farmer's Markets is held weekly on a grassy area inside the Harmony Crossing shopping center. All of the vendors are from a radius of 75 miles around the market. The event takes place from May to September, every Saturday morning from 8 AM until 12 Noon.
So many friends have recommended this particular farmer's market to me, so I ventured down the road one day this summer to try it out. I came away with my favorite vine-ripened tomatoes, squash, and some fresh bread. Many vendors offered samples of their wares; I tasted a bit of Hummingbird Cake (a Southern treat), and some peaches. However, I learned to be cautious in tasting samples as some "spicy" peach salsa sent me running for water!!
This Farmer's Market includes all types of local produce, but also includes home sewn gifts, local artists' creations, honey, and a wonderful array of freshly baked pastries and cakes. Don't miss this special "happening" if you are in the Lake Oconee area on a Saturday morning! This Farmer's Market is a wonderful part of the Lake Oconee Lifestyle.
