Explore Farmers' Markets in Savannah

Farmers markets offer fresh produce directly from local farmers, growers and producers. 

When you buy from farmers' markets, you not only support the local community, you also support your health, since freshly harvested fruits and vegetables are more nutrient-dense compared to those that have been on the shelf for a while. Savannah offers a plethora of options when it comes to farmers markets, check out our top five picks! 

Savannah State Farmers Market

701 US-80, Savannah, GA 31408

One of Savannah's true treasures, the Savannah State Farmers Market is operated by the Georgia Department of Agriculture and is open to the public year round for business, providing both Retail and Wholesale establishments to shop from. Opened for business in May of 1953, it has been in operation for over 66 years and is Savannah's oldest farmer's market. Aside from seasonal favorites like Georgia's famous Sweet Vidalia Onions, Peaches, and Watermelons, the market also sells holiday favorites, including pumpkins in the fall and Christmas trees during the Christmas season. A local Spice Company, Restaurant, Florist, Food Refrigeration Company and Sign Artist , can also be found here.

Forsyth Farmers' Market

13 E Park Ave, Savannah, GA 31401

Open every Saturday at Forsyth Park, this is Savannah's food-only, producer-only market where vendors on can offer fresh produce, pastured meats, local honey, artisan dairy and cheeses, craft breads and baked goods and a wide variety of prepared foods, including handmade pasta. This is a great place to go for your weekend shopping and, combined with a lovely stroll through Forsyth Park, not a bad way to spend your Saturday.

Davis Produce

7755 US-80, Savannah, GA 31410

This a roughly 1,300-square-feet, non-conditioned, garage-style store designed by owner Randy Davis and has been in the same location for 25 years, developing from a roadside table of fruits and vegetables a few days a week into a well-established market that is now open seven days a week. His wife, Sherry Polks Davis, is granddaughter of Hezekiah Polks, owner of H. Polk Produce and well-known among Lowcountry natives for his high quality produce, and the market is an offshoot of the original produce stand as a response to the growing demand for fresh fruits and vegetables. Davis Produce is the only market that offers year-round produce, largely due to the relationships that the Davises have built over the years with farmers, who often plant a second crop in August and pick again over the fall months. 

Island Farmers' Market

401 Quarterman Dr, Savannah, GA 31410

The Islands Farmers' Market is held every Saturday, and provides Savannah and its East Islands residents with seasonal produce, artisan goods and crafts, and more. It is a continuation of the Wilmington Island Farmers' Market, which was established in 2012 and was held on the grounds at a church in Wilmington Island. Growing in popularity, the market soon outgrew the location, and in 2018 new management took over and renamed and relocated the market. Serving as a  non-profit organization, the market also provides fun for the entire family with children’s activities, musical entertainment, and food trucks. 

Polks Plus

807 US-80, Pooler, GA 31322

Polk's Plus Produce is a real Southern institution, offering everything from fresh-off-the-vine tomatoes to luscious blueberry cobblers to sweet locally-grown honey. The market also carries local raw honey, Savannah coffee, and Hunter Cattle products (grass-fed beef out of Brooklet), and rhe freezer is stocked with soups and casseroles that you can take home and defrost and have a hot meal without all the effort. One great feature of this market is the "Polk's On the Go" aspect of it, where you can order a fruit and vegetable box to be delivered every week or every other week.
