Scenes from opening day Saturday of the 2012 season at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market
|As usual, the lines were long at the H&F Bread Company booth.|
There obviously was a lot of pent up anticipation and desires among Buckhead residents—waiting for the return of the Peachtree Road Farmers Market at the Cathedral of St. Philip, 2944 Peachtree Road.
Chris Hall of The Local Three gave the opening day
chef’s demonstration to a crowd of at least 50 people.
The opening day crowd on Saturday, April 14, was the largest we can recall since the market started in 2007. And there were more vendors participating than in years past, including a host of steady participants and a few new ones.
As usual, there were lots of people with baby strollers (including the babies) and with dogs, all of which seemingly got along with each other.
Once again, it seems to be the place to be on Saturday mornings, between 8:30 and noon, to buy some good locally grown organic produce and other food items, to mingle with friends, to take in a chef demonstration, and maybe get a crepe and coffee for breakfast or lunch.
This is just a few photos from opening day.
