Camp North End’s farmers’ market opens on Wednesday, April 28. From then until October, you can shop local goods from 26 vendors every Wednesday from 4-8pm.
What to expect: The market will be located outdoors on Keswick Avenue near the property’s four food stalls.
- It’ll host 16 anchor vendors and 10 rotating vendors every week, selling an array of goods from local produce and fresh seafood to eco-friendly products and herbal medicine.
Why it matters: Access to fresh food is a “longtime priority” for the 76-acre complex near Druid Hills, says Tommy Mann, development director at Camp North End. This market helps address that with options for SNAP recipients.
The state of play: Before the pandemic, CNE was buzzing on weekends, but often quiet on weekdays. From this market to other community events to the new restaurants that opened in the past year, CNE has established itself as a destination on all days of the week.
