About Us

University of Georgia Extension has served Fulton County residents since 1914, when fields still covered much of the county. Over the last century, our programs have expanded to include urban gardening, sustainable landscapes, family and consumer sciences and 4-H youth leadership.

The Fulton County Extension, backed by the resources of Fulton County and the University of Georgia, provides educational programs, information, and actual assistance to citizens of the County. Education and information is also provided to citizens by telephone consultation, site visits, newsletters, news articles, radio and collaboration with other community agencies. Publications and lab services are other delivery methods for education and information to citizens.

Fulton Fresh Mobile Farmers Market                                        

Fulton Fresh Mobile Market Applications – Fall 2018 Season

The Fulton Fresh mobile farmer’s market was created to educate residents living in communities designated as “food deserts” on the importance of fresh and in-season produce. Every week, attendees will participate in a 30 minute UGA Extension SNAP-Ed nutrition education food demonstration and then be provided with a free bag of in-season produce from our mobile market.

The mobile farmer's market will run for 5 weeks during the 2018 fall season: October 16 - November 15. Organizations will be on a weekly schedule. Location stops will be selected through this application process and the location contact will assist in the set up and advertising of the mobile market stop.

To apply, please fill out this application form online or contact Yvette Davis at YvetteA.Davis@fultoncountyga.gov or 404-762-4077 to receive a pdf version of the application. Please submit the application by Sunday, July 29 by 5 pm – NO EXCEPTIONS. If you have any questions, please contact Kristen Sumpter at ksumpter@uga.edu or 404-762-4077.

Please note, applications from agency locations from the 2018 Summer Season will not be accepted in order to serve as many Fulton County communities as possible. Thank you for understanding.

 

Looking forward to the season!

Kristen Sumpter and the UGA Fulton County Extension team
