Have you heard about the brand new Georgia Farmers Market opening in Cumming GA & Fosyth County?

When we first shared this photo on our Facebook page – gosh you all got excited!!  And I admit it.  I got excited when I first saw it too.  We have long talked about when a Whole Foods or Trader Joes would open in Cumming or Forsyth.  Remember my post about “Is Whole Foods Opening in Cumming GA” – so yes, I’m excited!

The Georgia Farmers Market will be remodeling the space next door to Stars & Strikes (formerly occupied by Overstock Floors).

According to this article by North Fulton News, the brand new Georgia Farmers Market in Cumming will offer “locally grown produce, locally raised meats and regionally caught seafood.”  That’s awesome!!  And according to the same article it’s scheduled to open by the end of October.  Awesome again!!  Read the full North Fulton News article for even more details.

I will definitely be giving the new Georgia Farmers Market a chance!  Until then, I’ll just make drive-bys and see how close to October they’ll be!

Is a Whole Foods Opening in Cumming GA?

I don’t know if I’m in a super small minority that reads every billboard and tries to notice every new store coming into town or not.  Are you like that too or is it just me?

Just like when I get sad to see businesses close (did you hear that Menchie’s is closed!!), I get really happy to see new ones opening up in town.  And it seems like Cumming GA & Forsyth County is on an up-swing of openings these days.

Laguna Mexican is getting ready to open up right in downtown Cumming (in the old City Bistro space).  7 Tequilas Mexican is opening up in the old space of Smokejack at Midway Family Festival.  Asian Silk is opening up in a space that hasn’t been occupied in so long I forget the name of the last restaurant there (behind Verizon at Market Place Blvd)!  OVR Coffee Cafe just recently opened up at Vickery Village and a new restaurant is going inside the old Tavern space there too.  Panera Bread is finally in Cumming GA and The Cupbearer is in the same shopping center.

Oh, and I know LOTS of you are excited about Costco coming to town.  I truly am curious … why is there so much excitement about Costco??  I guess I’ve never shopped there.

Anyhow.  That brings us to the one thing that Forsyth County is in desperate need of (well if they would ask for my opinion at least) … a good grocery store!!  What is it going to take to bring Whole Foods or Trader Joes to Cumming GA or Forsyth County?

Since they don’t clue me into their plan, I have no idea when or if that will ever happen.  But I do try to remind them from time to time that we need them!  And here’s what transpired the last time I reminded Whole Foods …

 So what does that mean to you?

Do you think we’ve waited long enough?  And a Whole Foods would be a good thing, right?  My answer to both of those is YES!!  So come on Whole Foods!!  SO … do you think a Whole Foods is opening up in Cumming or Forsyth County soon?  Or if they don’t jump on something soon, maybe Trader Joes will!
