Also, there is a community farmers market targeting the eastern area of Coweta. It is located in the parking lot of Grace Baptist Church, 825 Hwy. 34 East (intersection of Hwy. 34 E and Ebenezer Church Road). The community market is held every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will run through the end of November. The church is about 1 mile east of Thomas Crossroads. This is also a producer-only market, meaning that the farmers cannot broker the food; they must produce it themselves. Everything will be handmade, homemade or local.
