Macon's Mulberry Market

Central Georgia Healthworks in Macon began the City Market on the Green as a weekly initiative to encourage economic development, encourage healthy lifestyles and healthy eating, and create a sense of community in downtown Macon. It is a producer-only market operated each Wednesday from 4-7 pm, giving access to fresh produce (seasonal offerings), meats, dairy, etc. provided by local farmers. The project received the attention of several local small producers who were unable to expand their production due to a lack of storefront for their product. It provided them access to a market for their goods. An added benefit is that residents of downtown Macon have a market available to them that is walkable. The Market has been so successful that it recently moved to nearby Tattnall Square Park to provide the much needed additional space for both vendors and shoppers.
