New FMC State Partner Launches 2016 Peach Tour

      Posted On: June 16, 2016


We’re excited to welcome the Georgia Farmers Market Association to FMC’s State Partner Program! GFMA is an association of farmers markets, producers and other organizations committed to improving healthy food access across the state of Georgia. As an FMC State Partner, all GFMA members automatically become FMC members, granting them access to FMC programs and resources, as well as a network of like-minded individuals from across the nation, dedicated to improving the local food system. FMC’s State Partner Program allows state associations to easily expand their service and ensure their state is well-represented within the FMC member base.  Learn more about our membership program and how your organization can become a State Partner.

GFMA is also busy preparing for their first annual Peach Tour! Peach Tour 2016 aims to feature GFMA, its member markets statewide, and showcase the diverse collection of Georgia producers. The tour runs June 18-30 and kicks off simultaneously at the West Broad Farmers Market in Athens and Norcross Community Market in Norcross on Saturday, June 18th. Additional tour stops feature Atlanta’s Ponce City Farmers Market, Macon’s Mulberry Market, Warner Robins’ International City Farmers’ Market, Augusta’s The Veggie Truck Farmers Market and Rockmart Farmers Market.

At each Peach Tour location, patrons are invited to enter a drawing for a chance to win a peck of sweet Georgia grown peaches from Dickey Farms and Pearson Farm. Come on out and get to know GFMA!
