The 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 are 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 Market
Our Fulton Fresh Mobile Market is BACK for the Summer 2019 Season
The mobile market will make 12 stops a week throughout Fulton County and is open to the public. Attendees will participate in a 30-minute nutrition class and food demonstration and will then be given a free bag of in-season produce from our mobile market to take home and prepare. It will run this summer from May 28 - August 8.
Please note: Attendees must arrive at least 10 minutes after the class has begun to receive the bag of produce.
