Oct 17 Jonesboro Farmers Market Jonesboro, GA - (31.0 miles) The Jonesboro Farmers Market is attracting more vendors and urban farmers to the market this year. There is no charge for farmers/vendors to participate at the market, which makes the market unique. The market's vendors include urban farmers with a variety of locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, cottage food vendors with an array of homemade products and a handful of vendors selling house plants and vegetable seedlings to start your backyard garden. UGA Clayton County Master Gardener Extension volunteers are at every market day sharing Extension gardening information. The market will also continue its live food preparation/nutrition demonstrations on occasional market days.
Oct 17 STEM Club Atlanta, GA - (11.0 miles) Calling all future engineers, designers, and programmers, come join our new special interest STEM Club to learn about how 3D printers work, the design and engineering process, and future careers.
