The Fall Harvest Festival is to “celebrate the end of a successful third season of Fresh on DeK,” which is put on by the University of Georgia’s DeKalb County Cooperative Extension. Part of Fresh on DeK’s mission is to contribute to a creating a healthy community through providing local produce.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., this Mobile Farmer’s Market will be selling discounted fresh produce as well as hosting some of the Cooperative Extension’s educational demonstrations. It’s a family-friendly event, too, featuring interactive games, food, and prizes for kids.

According to a recent press release, Fresh on DeK was able to “[relieve] food access barriers by providing fresh produce paired with nutrition education programming around the county.”
