In honor of International Women’s Day, Community Farmers Markets held its Lady Locavores event last night at the Garner Girls Specialty Foods and Culinary Studio. The event celebrated amazing woman chefs, artisans, and farmers in the Atlanta community. Food and drinks were prepared by woman chefs and mixologist using locally sourced produce from female owned farms and artisans. It was a beautiful night as we celebrated these divine queens in all of their glory. I was truly honored to be amongst such inspiring women.
