Farmers markets are a great place for people looking for fresh food that’s grown locally. It can be hard to know where fruit and veggies are from if you buy them at the supermarket, and many places don’t always provide the freshest produce. Farmers markets solve this problem, and they also provide a way for you to support the local economy. Check out the Fairgrounds Farmers Market this fall for a wide selection of food and crafts.
At Cronic Nissan, we’re proud to be a part of the Griffin, GA community, and often attend the Griffin Famers Market. The event is held at the Kiwanis Fairgrounds throughout the year, and the next one will be held on Friday, September 1st from 9am to 1pm, according to Eventbrite. There’s constantly a call for new vendors, so there’s always new produce and products at the market.
You can find local products at the farmers market like Baker’s Bark spice rub, Grazing Here grass-fed beef burgers, fresh pumpkins, honey, jelly, and jam. Pecans are ever-popular, though you can get virtually any veggie or fruit you might need for your next dinner recipe.
Visiting the Fairgrounds Farmers Market is just one way you can support your community. Hop in the car and explore what the area has to offer.
Spring break is right around the corner for many schools. If you have any students in your family, you might be thinking about some activities you can do or trips you can take. However, you don’t have to go far to have some fun. Here are some ideas on how to spend spring break in Georgia.
- Hiking in the mountains. Head north to the Chattahoochee National Forest and enjoy some excellent hiking with the family. If you make it to the top, you’ll get some great scenic views.
- Visit Macon. Just an hour away from Griffin, Georgia is Macon. Take a few day trips and visit the Earth Lodge, dig for fossils at Ocmulgee National Monument, take a walk through the Dauset Trails Nature Center, or tour the Museum of Aviation.
- See some color. Head an hour southwest to Pine Mountain and visit the Callaway Gardens. This beautiful garden explodes in color during the spring. You can also take a walk through the butterfly house.
- Take in the city. Plan a stay in Atlanta and act as touristy as you like. Get a CityPASS and visit five of Atlanta’s best attraction. And, catch a screening or two of some great movies at the Atlanta Film Festival.
We at Cronic Nissan are so glad spring is finally here. What is your favorite way to spend your free time in the spring?
