Remembering Ann Brewer, the driving force behind Atlanta’s farmers markets

If you’ve ever enjoyed local produce in an Atlanta restaurant or visited an area farmers market, you likely have Ann Brewer to thank. More than two decades ago, she helped launch and run Georgia Grown Cooperative, which sold locally grown food to restaurant chefs and led ultimately to the founding of Morningside Farmers Market.

Kale haters, be warned: It’s in your soup

Feast on local strawberries at Morningside Farmers Market

Strawberry season is currently upon us here in Georgia, so Slow Food Atlanta and its student chapter at Le Cordon Bleu-Atlanta are hosting a strawberry celebration at the Morningside Farmers Market this Saturday. There will be plenty of opportunities to sample the super-sweet local strawberries that put those overpriced packages of Driscoll’s to shame. Slow Food volunteers will be serving up strawberry shortcakes made with local berries and local cream from Sparkman’s Dairy. The shortcakes cost $5 for what I’m told is a generous portion, and proceeds go to the Morningside Market and these local chapters of the international Slow Food organization. (Full disclosure: I’m a student at LCB-Atlanta, but not involved with planning this event).
