Canceled: Callway Garden's Winter Market

February 3, 2013 

The Winter Market scheduled at Callaway Gardens for Saturday, Feb. 23, has been canceled due to possible bad weather coming Saturday morning. The Farmers Market will begin Friday, May 24.

Local and regional vendors will sell baked goods, soaps, sauces and other specialty food items.

The Farmers Market is committed to supporting the development of our local agricultural economy and healthy stewardship of area land. All products are produced within a 150-mile radius of Callaway's home in Pine Mountain.

It offers an opportunity for farmers and artisans to sell their goods directly to consumers; assists businesses who sell locally grown food and garden-related products; and provides a unique shopping experience and gathering place for guests at Callaway Gardens.

The market will be held at Robin Lake Beach, so enter the Gardens through the beach gate on U.S. Hwy. 27. Admission is free to the Winter Market but will be charged if people want to explore the Gardens.
