Lady Locavores Celebrates International Women’s Day 

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.
