With the rise in popularity of farmers markets, it’s no surprise that there is a National Farmers Market Week. In fact, this week marks the 15th annual celebration. Luckily for the residents at Jim Chapman Communities’ Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge, they don’t have to go far to find freshly grown products.
Located in Cumming, the active adult community is minutes from 10 farmers markets. The Cumming Harvest sells locally grown, chemical-free produce to customers and allows Wednesday preorders to be picked up on Saturdays off Colony Park Drive. The Cumming Farmers Market is open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to noon at the Cumming Fairgrounds, and the Brookwood Farmers Market, a non-profit started by elementary school PTA members, is open every Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. at Brookwood Elementary School.
Other nearby markets include the Suwannee Farmers Market, Sprout Springs Library Farmers Market, Dawson County Farmers Market, the historic Downtown Gainesville Market on the Square, Green Acres Farm Market, Berkeley Lakeside Market, Whistle Stop Farmer’s Market in Norcross and many more.
In addition to Farmers Markets, the nearly sold out community is located near tons of shopping, dining and entertainment options.
Priced from the $280,000s, Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge features ranch condominiums with low maintenance living. To visit from Atlanta, take GA-400 North to exit 14 (Cumming/Buford Hwy). Turn right onto GA-20, and go approximately two miles. Turn left onto Samples Road, and then take an immediate left into the community just past Publix.
