Aja Rae Embry

Anti Racist Toolkit For Farmers Markets Work Group Member

Aja Rae Embry was born in Decatur, and as a child tried to grow fruit trees from the seeds of the produce she ate. She’s worked in sales and customer service since high school, but truly found her passion when growing food, and then linking with the local agricultural community. Aja is currently the East Atlanta Village Farmers Market Garden & Lot Coordinator with Community Farmers Markets in Atlanta.

When not at market or a farm, Aja loves singing, writing, and recording music (take a listen here!). She enjoys taking short trips with her daughter. Aja loves serving the community that served her as a child, and greeting everyone that comes to market. She loves interacting with the local children and using any opportunity to get them excited about agriculture.
