Norcross Community Market

the 1st in the 2019 Series

 Know Your Farmer

Norcross Community Market has been selected to receive a grant from AgSouth Farmers Credit as a part of AgSouth’s Think Outside the Store® farmers grant program.

The funds are designated to be used for promoting the market, and Norcross Community Market was chosen based on our plan to increase public awareness of the market with this “Know Your Farmer” series.

Here at Norcross Community Market, we want to encourage a sense of community that comes from knowing your farmers as friends. When you come to the market on Saturday mornings, stop and spend a few minutes chatting with the farmers. Let them know that you read some of the details that makes them unique and interesting. Thank them for being a part of this community.

Meet the Writers and Photographers

In case we haven’t met, let us introduce ourselves. We are Pam and Sara, the mother-daughter team behind the food blog, Biscuits and Burlap and we’re so excited to be creating the “Know Your Farmer” series again this year. We live right here in the neighborhood (Pam lives in Norcross, and Sara in nearby Clarkston). We are huge believers in buying local to support our community and cooking with the freshest food possible. We invite you to visit Biscuits and Burlap, try some of our recipes and reach out if you have food photography needs.

If you see us at the market with our clipboards and cameras, be sure to stop us and say hello.

Here’s what you can expect:

Throughout the summer we’ll be featuring different farmers in each series. We can’t wait to share details with you about their farming methods, what’s new with them this year, and their future plans and goals. We’ll even try to give you a little peek into who they are and what makes them tick. Included in each article will be photographs of some of their beautiful products and their smiling faces.

Our goal is, by the time you meet them at the market, you’ll feel like you’re running into an old friend.

Some of the farmers you’ll be getting to “know” this year:
