Marietta Square Farmers Market

Cooking during this fall season should be all about highlighting beautiful seasonal produce. Lucky for us, we have a bounty at our doorstep at the Marietta Square Farmers Market, open year-round.

Johnny Fulmer has been the market director for 20 years and is a board member of the Downtown Marietta Development Authority.

This fall season, he celebrates local farmers and growers and says vendors are committed to producing the highest quality handmade goods. The market has an average of 67 vendors and hundreds of customers each week.

“Market customers have lots of variety to choose from including heirloom tomatoes, fruits and vegetables that are rarely, if ever, available from the grocery store,” he says. “We also have lots of the staples such as potatoes, onions, tomatoes, squash, and beans in addition to pattypan squash, heirloom salad mix, amazing cut flower arrangements, local honey, herbal soaps, whole grain breads, jelly, jam and preserves. Customers can also take home many live garden, yard and culinary herb plants.”

The objective of the Marietta Square Farmers Market is to support the development of the local agricultural economy which will foster stewardship of our land and goodwill in our community.
“We do this by providing a place for farmers/growers to sell their goods directly to consumer and by assisting businesses that sell food, farm and garden and kitchen related products gain entry into the local market,” says Fulmer. “The Market is a place that will provide alternative shopping and bring together people from all walks of life from throughout our community.”
