The State Farmers Market is the second largest commercial, fresh produce market in the southeast, after Atlanta. It is also the only market in Georgia that still holds auctions for local producers (May – November). In-season fruit and vegetables are available year-round at the retail produce stand. Purchase regional delicacies such as Vidalia onions and Mayhaw jelly. The “Mayhaw” berry grows on trees in swampy areas and resembles a very small crabapple. (“Haw” is a Southern term for apple and “May” refers to when the berry ripens, thus “Mayhaw”.) When cooked they have the most delicious, sweet flavor.
