Kroger Farmers Market helping support Atlanta’s local food fresh and delivery

More than 60 farms, chefs and artisans in the Atlanta area have easy access to millions of potential new customers thanks to a new Kroger partnership. Kroger Farmers Market powered by Market Wagon offers a uniquely local assortment of over 1,150 products.
Kroger Farmers Market powered by Market Wagon gives people the ability to support local farmers and Georgia small businesses by providing last-mile delivery service to a 60-mile radius across Atlanta which includes 28 counties in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Customers can choose their preferred delivery day of Tuesday or Friday or both.
A strong local supply chain provides an important solution to the continuing global supply chain problems exposed by the pandemic. Market Wagon’s success has been instrumental in keeping many Georgia small businesses going including:
D&B Farm and Livestock (Loganville) – Brianna Boyd is part of the mother-daughter team behind D&B Farm who want to share their clean eating habits with everyone. In addition to fresh free-range eggs, they grow a variety of vegetables like squash and zucchini naturally with no pesticides.
Piedmont Kitchen Co. (Atlanta) — As a father of three young children, owner Brad Coolidge discovered how much easier life is with ready-to-eat meals. In addition to his signature BBQ dishes and sides, he also offers delicious vegan options like chili and stew.
7W Farm (Winston) — Fred Waldrop’s family has been farming the same land in Douglas County for seven generations—hence the 7W name. He offers grass-fed ground beef, breakfast sausage as well as sustainably grown vegetables.
Now, thanks to the opportunity provided by Kroger Farmers Market powered by Market Wagon, farmers and food producers can reach people even more easily.
Kroger Farmers Market powered by Market Wagon contains everything you would expect to find at a physical farmers market—local farm-fresh eggs, dairy, meat, produce, baked goods, and more. Shopping requires no upfront fees or long-term subscriptions. Food is delivered in reusable, insulated cloth bags along with ice packs which can be reused over and over again.
