Buckhead’s Peachtree Road Farmers Market will ask shoppers to pre-order if possible to avoid lines. The Brookhaven and Dunwoody markets are, among other precautions, barring pets (except service animals) and asking patrons to “please shop with a purpose and do not linger at the market.”

Here are the details on local markets this year.
