UGA Extension Office


The University of Georgia Extension has continually served Fulton County residents since 1914 when fields still covered much of the County. Our programs have expanded over the last century 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 assistance to citizens of the County. That assistance is provided to citizens by telephone consultation, site visits, newsletters, news articles, radio, and collaboration with other community agencies. In addition, publications and lab services are delivery methods for education and information to citizens.

Fulton Fresh Mobile Market Application - EXTENDED! 

2024 Summer Season
University of Georgia Extension, Fulton County

The Fulton Fresh mobile 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 30-45 minute UGA Extension nutrition education and food demonstration and will then be given a free bag of in-season produce from our mobile market to take home and prepare.  The produce is not sold; rather, it is given away to individuals who arrive to the nutrition class no later than ten minutes after it begins.

This Summer, the mobile market will run for two five weeks sessions during the 2024 Summer season, from May 28 -  June 27 & July 9 -August 8, 2024. Each chosen organization will be served a total of 5 weeks during the Summer season. Location stops will be selected through this application process and the agency contact will assist in the set up and advertising of the mobile market stop.

1. We give priority to those locations that are located in a USDA food desert: or within a Fulton County Food Severity Index: 
2.The point of contact is responsible for marketing the five-week session and must be present at all sessions.

Agencies that have been selected in the past may apply again, but will go through the same rubric and interview process as every other agency that is interested and applies by the deadline.

Please submit the application by April 12, 2024  by 5 pm – NO EXCEPTIONS. If you have any questions, please contact Shirley Dodd at or 404-613-4935.
