Sandy Springs Farmers Market

Sandy Springs residents throng the parking lot of a defunct Target to shop the wares of more than thirty merchants (including nonfood vendors selling jewelry, pottery, and soaps) and enjoy live music and occasional cooking demos. Standout producers include Abundant Harvest Gardens (fragrant French melons, zephyr squash), Bray Family Farm (sweet corn), and Bella’s Best bakery, innovators of a rich, crumbly pastry called strucla.

Parking tip: Convenient parking is available right next to the market.
