Boxcar Grocer raising funds for expansion into food deserts The brother and sister team that brought fresh produce and sandwiches to an Atlanta food desert are at it again. This time they’re raising money with hopes of taking their business to the next level.
National Farmers Market Week, this year to occur Aug. 5-12 as proclaimed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is a very nice idea, but here in metro Atlanta, it just won’t do. No, we’ve got Farmers Market Month, thankyouverymuch. It’s brought to you by—who else?—area farmers markets.
Update: On Aug. 11, the city of Atlanta's Zoning Review Board approved a proposed amendment to the zoning ordinance to allow farmers markets to operate on private property within city limits. On Aug. 31, the legislation will go before the City Council's Zoning Committee. If that group votes to recommend approval, the legislation will go before the City Council for a final vote on Sept. 6.
