SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (March 10, 2022)—The City of Sandy Springs is putting the spring(s) in springtime fun and it’s time to celebrate the new season with something for everyone.

Time for Open-Air Shopping at the Sandy Springs Farmers Market

Beginning Saturday, April 9 and running through Nov. 12, head to City Springs and shop what's in season at the Sandy Springs Farmers Market. Each week, a unique selection of vendors will set up shop providing an open-air opportunity to purchase fresh produce and artisan foods.

Many bring their farm to your table, others offer deliciously prepared specialty foods. The 2022 market will feature a robust offering of produce, foods-to-go, entertainment and community engagement activities. The Sandy Springs Farmers Market will take place Saturday mornings (rain or shine) at the City Green at City Springs. Market hours are from 8:30 a.m. until noon.

Light up the Night at the Annual Lantern Parade
Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 30 for this year’s Take it to the River annual Lantern Parade at Morgan Falls Overlook Park. Participants will gather in the Steel Canyon Golf Club parking lot and enjoy music, food trucks and children’s activities prior to the parade. The parade, a glowing procession of light, music and color, strolls from the Golf Club to Morgan Falls Overlook Park (participants who make a flying pig lantern march in the front of the parade with Sanderson the Flying Pig). 

As walkers arrive at the park with their brightly-colored and lighted globes, parasols, hats and a vast assortment of animated whimsical creatures, the river is transformed into a breathtaking sight with beautifully-lit floating lanterns escorted by paddlers from High Country Outfitters.

While Concerts by the Springs and City Green Live are free to attend, some concertgoers choose to purchase tables to enhance their experience. In an effort to provide previous patrons the opportunity to purchase the same tables they’ve purchased in the past and offer new customers the chance to purchase a table, the City is including table sales as part of the Create City Springs Membership Program.

The various membership levels allow for specific advance sales, allowing all members of any given level equal chance to choose their favorite table for purchase before general sales. With memberships starting as low as $100, the membership program provides much needed support of annual programming, including the school matinee program. The program features school-time field trips that focus on education while building a lifelong love of arts and culture.

To learn more about table sales and the benefits of membership, please visit citysprings.com/memberships.
