The final Peachtree Road Farmers Market for 2010 was to be held Dec. 18. It featured more than 25 local artists and craftsmen along with local farmers. The market will return April 9 to begin its fifth season. It usually is held in the parking lot of the Cathedral of St. Philip, 2744 Peachtree Road, but moved inside during December because of the weather.
On Dec. 11, Allen Ferrell, pictured above, of the Buckhead Men’s Garden Club, sells a plant to Michelle Alcock, at the Garden Girls booth. Garden Girls sells artwork of flowers and plants. In the photo at right, Paula Guilbeau of Heirloom Gardens sells some of the vegetables in her booth.
Manager Lauren Carey said the market had raised the $5,000 it needed to match a grant offered by the Zyman Family Foundation to cover the cost of police officers required during operating hours of the market for 2010 and 2011.
