Finally I got to go to Newnan's Market Day! For me the square has always been a special place. I still remember that cold Fall Day; It was October 29th of 1986 and my parents and I had came up from Fort Lauderdale Florida to look for houses and immediately fell in love with Newnan. The leaves were still falling, and the pumpkins were out. I guess we liked the square because my Dad's childhood home, and that of my Grandparents out in Rupert Idaho had a town square. Since then the square is even more vibrant and now with a successful street fair! It was the perfect day too, with low humidity levels and a comfortable 74 degrees. As you can see, there were lots of people out.
Market Day is every first Saturday of the month between the months of April and December right in downtown Newnan. It features produce and creations from local artisans and farmers in more than 50 spaces. For details check the web site: https://www.mainstreetnewnan.com/p/events/the-market-day
Since US Highway 29 runs Norths and South on both sides of the square, only two of the four streets are closed for market Days, but there's plenty of room and parking is a little hard to find but you'll find something within a few blocks. I was lucky and got an on square spot by Golden's on the Square.
Another fun thing to see at the street market, is what is called "Pickin' on the square". Any musician with an acoustic instrument can play on the West side of the Court House. I can't wait for Monday. That's the Labor Day Arts and Crafts Market that will be on the square sponsored by the Corner Arts Gallery. https://newcaa.com/
I didn't get much, but I saw a lot of happy smiles, kids were having fun, and I med a couple of really nice vendors. I decided some local honey would be good to eat to help with allergies, and you can never have enough fresh roasted coffee beans in the kitchen. Jamee at the Arts commission gave me a tote bag to help carry stuff. What a great community event!
