Dunwoody Green Market is closing

The Dunwoody Green Market is closing. It announced on its Facebook page that its Wednesday market has “run its course in Dunwoody and no longer makes good business sense to continue.”

Over the last decade, the Dunwoody Green Market moved five times to different Dunwoody locations, according to market officials who said each move caused the company to lose a portion of its customer base.

Without that weekly customer support, the market loses its viability, market officials said in a press release.

Art Festival moving to “Main Street”

Organizers of the Dunwoody Art Festival announced this year’s event will take place at Dunwoody Village Parkway on Mother’s Day weekend, May 9 and 10.

Residents attending the festival will be able to find live entertainment, food and shopping on what festival organizers called the community’s “Main Street.”

A special Kidz Zone will welcome younger members of the community with face painting, sand art and rides.

Students from elementary, middle and high schools in the area are busy designing and decorating chairs and stools that will be auctioned off to the highest bidder to benefit the art programs in the schools. Last year’s Chairs for Charity auction raised more than $1,000.

The festival will take place on a portion of the parkway between Mount Vernon Road and Jiffy Lube. Free parking and shuttles will be available at Calvary Church, located at 5067 Chamblee Dunwoody Road.
