  1. What is up with having it on a Friday? Most people are in School, or at work. Move it to a weekend day, or even Friday evening. But doing it during the day really doesn’t allow people who would like to go to enjoy it. We drive to Marietta on Saturdays almost every Saturday. Would much rather stay local in Acworth.

  2. Who had the brilliant idea of having this on a Friday morning? Did someone not get the memo that Friday is a work/school day? Having this event on a Saturday from 8-Noon or even 9-1 would draw people in to shop for local produce, which my family would certainly like to do, and then people would likely grab some lunch, have a beer, get some ice cream, etc… at the local establishments.

  3. I miss it every weekend because I can’t seem to get there by 11:00a. I think it should at least go to 12:00a or 1:00a. If it can’t due to parking needed for the business establishments then it should be moved to another location.

  4. Just wanted to say that I only very recently discovered this & I love that it’s a Friday event! So many things going on on the weekend days already, so it’s nice for my 3 month old & 5 year old to be able to browse around and pick up some fresh veggies/fruits that actually gets them excited to cook & eat.

  5. Love this smaller farmers market, and it’s on a Friday so NO LARGE CROWDS. Love IT! Keep it just the way it is. There are plenty of larger farmers markets that operate on Sat/Sun, check out Canton and Woodstocks.

  6. If you’re not going to change to a larger location, I wish that you’d block off the area so people can’t drive thru. I’ve been hit (not hard, but that’s not the point) three times by careless drivers driving too close to the booths.

  7. Why not have this on a Saturday instead of Friday? We working people can’t attend that early in the morning, we have to go or we are at work at that time :( :(

  8. Please change the day or time. As a previous athens resident I fell in Love with the Athens farmer’s market which was on Wednesday evenings and Saturday Mornings. Please move the time or day of the farmers markets so hard blue collar workers can spend their hard earned money on their local farmers.

  9. I had to go to Acworth for something. Saw the sign , but when I got online to check what time it closed. I was sad to see you all closed at 11 and only on Friday. I was going to come back tomorrow morning , but I guess I will have to wait. Sad to I needed to do some food shopping why I waited for my daughter.

  10. Please, change the date and time and location!! How many people have to complain before you do something about it???

  12. Everyone does not understand that most of these vendors have other places to go Sat/Sun and the city of Acworth has other venues on the weekends. I think it’s awesome they found a niche for Friday. I’m going to try to get there. I work every weekend due to my massage business so the timing and location are great.
