Gourmet foods and artisan products featured at the Acworth Farmer’s Market

June 17—ACWORTH — Local food and other produce is on offer at the Acworth Farmer’s Market every Friday morning through October, 8 a.m. to noon.

The Acworth Market features a variety of produce from across Georgia and provides the community with artisan goods, fresh fruits, vegetables, breads and dairy products, and homemade desserts.

Bonnin’s Bakery customer Carol Jansson is a fan of the bakery’s pies.

Anisa’s Secrets, a market vendor, has a physical store in Marietta. Chief operating officer Dominique Ali said he started making seasonings at home and giving them away at housewarming parties before realizing he could start a business.

“Next thing you know, we were selling our seasonings at farmers markets, and then from there we got into Whole Foods, and last year we were on ‘The View’ TV show,” said Ali said.

Another seller raved about what he called his “proudly pickled high peppers.” Rich Newton, CEO of Point Blank Pepper Company, sells various spice flavored dips.

If people want to experience different homemade products, farmers’ markets are “go-to places,” Newton said. For sellers, marketplaces help spread the word, introduce your product to more people, and connect with different food events and contests.

“Our smoke rings took second place at Zest Fest in Dallas last year, and they were runners-up for Flavorist of Georgia a few months ago in Athens,” Newton said.

The Acworth Farmers Market is held at Logan Farm Park on Cherokee Street.
