Offers new additions to the Green Market

Milledgeville Main Street and The Green Market are joining forces and focusing their energy on one community farmers market for the 2017 season. Milledgeville Main Street will collaborate with the Green Market to help it reach a wider range of customers and become an even more successful and vibrant market.

The Green Market will take place every Saturday May- October from 9am-12pm at the Pavilion, located at 222 W. Hancock St., next to the Golden Pantry. At the Green Market, there will be a variety of locally grown, sustainably produced vegetables, fruit, meat, bread, preserves and plants. The Green Market accepts and matches SNAP/EBT dollars--dollar for dollar. Spend $10, and get $20 worth of fresh, local food (up to $50). Pay less for fresh and local food that is higher quality and more nutritious! Stop at the main booth on Saturday to use a SNAP/EBT card. To learn more about this program, visit www.greenmarketmilledgeville.com.

On the second Saturday of each month starting May 13th, Main Street will host a handmade crafts and yard sale that is open to the public to sale their wares and old treasures. The sale will take place in conjunction with the Green Market. To register for the sale fill out a short application on the Main Street website, milledgevillemainstreet.com or email Deana at dthornton@milledgevillega.us. There will be a $10 fee to setup and all crafts and yard sale vendors will setup on the lawn.
