One of my favorite things about spring and summer is farmer’s markets. There’s nothing better than grabbing a cup of coffee and spending the morning checking out what the local vendors are offering. Most farmer’s markets offer fruits, veggies, homemade jams, meats, baked goods, and even handmade crafts. Luckily, there are farmer’s markets located in almost every city in the Atlanta area, so you have many options to choose from.
