Milledgeville is a place with an amazing downtown, but in the surrounding areas, we have rich farmland and some awesome farmers to go along with it. With The Green Market every other Saturday in Milledgeville, you won’t be missing out on the best organic and fresh produce from these cool locals. Here are some of the highlights:
