A new initiative aims to enhance the consumer retail experience at the State Farmers Market in Macon.

The Georgia Grown Farmer’s Showcase, which is open to the public, is from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, according to a news release.

“After the success of the farmer’s showcase events in Atlanta, we have decided to expand the efforts statewide,” Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black said in the release. “Agriculture is the largest industry in our state, and this event will utilize the Macon State Farmers Market to show our locally produced items.”

In addition to a wide range of Georgia Grown fruits and vegetables, consumers also will find locally produced meats, cheeses, plants and flowers, as well as jams, jellies and honey.

Products from similar areas of the state will be grouped together to showcase the agricultural regions in Georgia.
