Market Days on the Square, organized by Main Street Newnan, returns Saturday, May 4.

Each month vendors showcase homemade, homegrown, or handmade items to include fresh food, pottery, jewelry, arts and crafts, sweet-smelling soaps and lotions, children’s clothing, locally-grown produce and honey, pet accessories, jams, jellies, fresh-squeezed lemonade, salsas and more.

Also enjoy music with Pickin’ on the Square, a gathering of acoustic players. The musicians set up at the steps of the historic Coweta County Courthouse offering bluegrass, gospel and many other well-loved selections. 

There is free public parking available along downtown streets and in several city off-street lots.
