Join Community Farmers Markets for the celebratory opening day on Sunday, April 8, at the Grant Park Farmers Market. The 2018 market season will include activities for kids, chef demos, and all the locally grown and made vegetables, meats, eggs, breads, and more that Grant Park has grown to love.

After holding a winter market that featured offerings from local growers and food artisans at Eventide Brewing, the Grant Park Farmers Market will be returning to our regular location in the park for the opening day celebrations on April 8.

On opening day, look for the best tastes of the spring season: carrots, turnips, kale, lettuce, and more. Visit throughout April for everyone’s favorite time of spring: strawberry season.

Grant Park Farmers Market is managed by Community Farmers Markets, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is committed to increasing food access through education, farmers markets, and financial incentives.

The market takes place on Sunday from 9:00am to 1:00pm in Grant Park near the Milledge fountain, located at 600 Cherokee Avenue.
