Market Manager

The East Atlanta Village Farmers Market Manager is Katie Hayes.  A fourth generation Atlantan, Katie enjoys nothing more than heirloom tomatoes, Georgia peaches, and a heaping pile of boiled peanuts.

Katie is passionate about building community through supporting small, local business.  Since graduating from NYU with a focus on thinking locally, Katie is an active locavore and community builder.  She has a passion for education, and has worked at National Geographic, KIPP Charter Schools, and helped start several education non-profits, community gardens, and innovative companies.   She believes that farmers markets are a critical economic and community building tools (not to mention full of delicious food!)

When Katie is not managing the East Atlanta Village and Grant Park Farmers Markets, she can be found walking her pug and chickens around Cabbagetown.
