Holiday Farmers’ Market glee!! Our perfect Saturday includes a long run in the morning, followed by wandering around the Peachtree Road Farmers’ Market right in our backyard! The Peachtree Road Farmers’ Market runs from April to December, and this weekend they are closing their doors with a Holiday version (oh, and thanks to the freezing weather in ATL…it’s inside). Looking for neat electic art or good farm to table breads, sausages, and cheeses – the market has the best of Atlanta literally in (elaney’s) backyard.

Ever since the 6th grade discovery of the Renaissance Festival, we’ve loved any sort of festival / outdoor tax free retail / mecca of starving artists / farmer’s market. If Labor Day brings a staycation for you in the ATL, try out one of these fun festivals or farmers’ markets:
DeKalb Farmer’s Market: It’s hard to know if you are in a suburb of Atlanta or some international food capital in Europe. The DeKalb Farmer’s Market has every spice, vegatable, wine, cracker, fruit, meat, etc. that you can imagine. It’s overwhelmingly wonderful. But not for the crowd-shy individual.
Peachtree Road Farmer’s Market: Small little Saturday morning farmer’s market for those of us that don’t like to travel far. Meets from 8-12 in the parking lot of St. Philip’s Cathedral.
Decatur Book Festival: Talk to new and estabilished authors including Sara Gruen (Water for Elephants) and Kathryn Stockett (The Help).
Marietta Art in the Park: Get lots of lots of cool art for reasonable prices!

Regarded as the most electic and favorite weekend festival in the city, the Inman Park Festival starts Saturday and Sunday! Inman Park is a great ATL neighborhood – come enjoy the art, food, music and fun of the locals and with the elaney staff!
