Newnan’s downtown food offerings got a little bigger — and a little fresher — starting May 1, when Our Community Farmers Market opened in cooperation with Main Street Newnan and the city Business Development department.

The market is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesdays in the parking lot of the historic train depot between East Broad and East Washington streets.

Marianne Pizzitola, who operates Our Community Farmers Market, said her group is excited to be part of the effort to bring healthy, fresh vegetables to downtown Newnan.

“We have two Newnan farmers that are Certified Naturally Grown,” Pizzitola said.

Other vendors include sweets, a dedicated gluten free/allergen friendly baker, homemade fresh salsa, all natural soap and fragrances, local honey, all natural dog treats, hand-made clothes, goat cheese, relishes, fudge, and more.

“We think this is a great fit for downtown Newnan,” said Hasco Craver, Newnan Business Development director.

“We’ll start off one day a week but hope that it will grow organically — pun intended — to being open twice a week,” Craver said.

The market will be open Wednesday mornings until Thanksgiving.
