Annnnd, We’re Back! ...Sorta

Did you miss us?

It has been a couple of weeks since the last market of the first regular season of Norcross Community Market and we thank you for a successful beginning! 

Are you having withdrawal symptoms like us?

Are you craving farm fresh veggies? Do you miss seeing old friends and neighbors and meeting new ones? Are you looking for something fun to do on Saturdays?

Well, we have two solutions for YOU!

The second season of the community supported agriculture (CSA) farm subscription program is signing up members NOW. With your prepaid order you get the fresh farm bounty in season that week through our friends at The Turnip Truck.

Deliveries start Saturday September 10. Select either a full 10 week program for $330 or a half program for delivery every other week during the season for $165.

Register online and pay by September 7 to begin picking up fresh Georgia produce at the local VSOP Olive Oil and Vinegar Taproom at 81 South Peachtree St. in Historic Downtown Norcross.

VSOP opens at 10 am on Saturdays and has a wide selection of oils and vinegars to compliment the dishes you can make with your CSA box ingredients. Since CSA boxes will not be refrigerated we recommend you pick up by noon on delivery days.

 

Solution number 2 is a fun event, the annual Gateway International Food and Music Festival hosted by City of Norcross with sponsor Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District (GVCID). Go around the world with us in one day without even leaving downtown Norcross. Attend this special event on Saturday September 17 from 4 to 8 pm at Webb Park on the lower lawn.

What better way to bring the community together than over food and music? 

There will be a "pop up" farmers market, crafts, and delicious prepared food and beverages, music and dancers from our culturally diverse population.

Contact us NOW if you would like to be considered as a vendor.

To volunteer or for more information email norcrosscommunitymarket@gmail.com.

And watch for future "pop up" markets.

 

 

 

 

Norcross Community Market Day Proclamation

Celebrate National Farmers Market Week and the last farmers market of the first season of Norcross Community Market. Both fall on Saturday August 13 and we even have a City Proclamation naming August 13 as Norcross Community Market Day! Join the fun from 9 am to 1 pm at Webb Park, 5 College St. in Norcross.

Be sure and stock up from vendors who have braved the heat and humidity for one or more of the 10 Saturday season. They have brought us a fine variety of farm fresh local produce, meat, eggs, cheese, milk, fruits, cut flowers, plants, bakery, preserved items, shrimp, prepared foods and beverages, honey, cold treats, and natural soaps. Let them know you want them to return for future Norcross Community Market days by supporting them with your purchases.

Remember to thank our partners and sponsors. Without their financial contributions and in kind donations and support we would not have a farmers market. Our organizing partners are Sustainable Norcross, Project Generation Gap, and Georgia Farmers Market Association. 

Sponsors include City of Norcross, Norcross Downtown Development Authority (DDA), Accent Creative Group, Advanced Disposal, Brock Built Homes, Massage Envy, Wholesome Wave Georgia, J B Realty Partners, Heaven and Associates LLC Certified Public Accountants,  Lionheart Theater Company..

Special thanks go to our wonderful volunteers who assisted in so many ways starting months before the first market, or all during the market season, and the upcoming post season. Contact us if you would like to join this special group of dedicated market helpers.

Check out our market agenda for August 13 then watch our Facebook and website for news about our pop up markets. The first one is Saturday September 17 from 4 to 8 pm in conjunction with  Gateway International Food and Music Festival on the lower lawn of Webb Park.
