Athens Farmers Market Goes Digital: Athens/Oconee Residents Can Now Get Organic Produce Delivered

Staff Report From Athens CEO

Monday, April 6th, 2020

While raided grocery stores and panicked shoppers may not seem reflective of this idea, there is no shortage of life-giving food in the Athens and Oconee County communities. The Athens Farmers Market takes seriously their responsibility to provide fresh foods that strengthen immune systems and boost health, despite the growing challenges of COVID-19. 

That said, with a commitment to the safety and wellness of our entire community, the Athens Farmers Market has delayed opening—in a traditional sense.

Instead, AFM has partnered with Collective Harvest to officially open an online farmer’s market featuring the same vendors typically found at Bishop Park.
