Decatur Farmer’s Market May Soon Have a New OperatorDecatur Metro | | 8:52 am
In addition to an already reported new location, Decatur Farmer’s Market founders Greg and Nicole Coleson are in negotiations to transfer operational control of the market. From Atlanta Magazine’s Covered Dish blog…
Market founders Greg and Nicole Coleson are in discussions to transfer operational control of the market to Community Farmers Markets, the nonprofit organization that oversees the Grant Park and East Atlanta Village farmers markets.
The switch would certainly mean an increase in resources devoted to the market, and would likely result in a larger, more consistent collection of vendors.
“We just couldn’t dedicate the time and the energy to it that it needs,” says Nicole Coleson, who with her husband started the market in 2002, right around the time their daughter was born. “So when they approached us, we said, ‘Yes, it’s absolutely time.'”
But the transfer isn’t a done-deal just yet. Check out the full Atlanta Mag post for all the details.
