This Farmers’ market takes place on a private farm in Dacula, where local farmers bring their naturally grown vegetables, fruit, and eggs to sell. Several farmers also offer beef, pork and chicken, which you can pickup at the slaughter house or on their farms. The Dacula Natural Buyer’s Club provides boxes of organic produce from around the world to augment what is locally available. The market is also a drop point for Johnston Family Dairy. They graze their cattle on pasture to produce some of the most delicious milk you’ll ever taste. It is un-homogenized and only lightly pasteurized.

Farmer’s Markets

How can you contribute to Green and include your families? One way to be a little more green is to buy local food. It takes a lot less fuel to bring peaches from rural Georgia to Suwanee than it does to bring one from Chile. It can be hard to find local produce at your neighborhood grocery store, but luckily Gwinnett County and the surrounding area have a few summertime farmer’s markets! You might just like some yummy organic food.
