The Dahlonega Farmers Market is a weekly event that brings local residents to the downtown business district. It promotes a sense of community and provides fresh, locally grown produce to customers, while offering agribusiness sales opportunities to growers from Lumpkin and nearby counties.

All items at the Market are locally grown and seasonal. In May, buy locally grown plants, such as vegetable, garden, landscape, and house plants. With the arrival of summer, you can buy vegetables and seasonal fruits, plus jams, jellies, and baked goods containing locally grown ingredients.

The Market season runs Tuesdays, 2pm to 6pm, and Saturdays, 8am to 1pm (or until inventories are sold out) May until October.
